Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Cambridge.
CBT is a specialised therapy that combines both cognitive and behavioural therapies. It has a powerful evidence base and comprehensive ‘toolbox’ for treating mood disorders (such as depression) and anxiety, which are the two most common mental health disorders in the UK. The basic principle behind CBT is that, because negative feelings are difficult to change directly, CBT targets thoughts and behaviours that contribute to distressing emotions instead.
In this way, CBT helps you to develop skills that enable you to learn and enact healthier thinking patterns and behaviours. It helps you to identify how situations, thoughts, and behaviours influence how you feel, and then to improve your emotional state by changing them.
What is CBT?
Hundreds of peer-reviewed studies show that CBT can be particularly effective for people experiencing Depression and Anxiety (the two most common adult mental health problems in the UK), as well as many other difficulties, such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Social Anxiety, Stress and Anger, Chronic Fatigue, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). CBT can also be very effective in working with Relationship Problems (e.g. conflict resolution), Bereavement and Loss.
By providing a full clinical assessment and treatment service for a range of disorders, including those listed above, CBT Cambridge is dedicated to helping you overcome your mental health worries.

How long will it take?
The average number of sessions that people spend in CBT is between 12 and 16, although some problems may be tackled in fewer, while more complex cases may take longer. The number of sessions needed is agreed during the first two sessions, which means there is no open-ended contract and therapy does not become side-tracked.
Progress is reviewed regularly so that sessions are fine-tuned to your situation as things improve, or when obstacles are encountered.
