CBT – Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a very specific form of therapy that can be used to treat many types of mental health problems.  Research shows that it is effective for a wide range of disorders, from anxiety to depression to phobias.

CBT is a combination of two schools of psychology: behavioural psychology and cognitive psychology.  It works on the premise that our thoughts affect our behaviours and feelings and that it is our thoughts that make us feel bad rather than our life circumstances or situations.

It can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including:

  • Anxiety
  • PTSD – Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • OCD – Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Eating Disorders
  • Phobias
  • Depression

Each session lasts between 30 and 60 minutes.

You can have a CBT session on its own or combine it with a healing session.
