CBT - Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

CBT or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy as a therapeutic method is closely associated with depression as it has been shown to reduce symptoms of depression even in situations where drug treatment has failed. It can also help with anxiety disorders such as panic attacks, as well as phobia, bulimia, OCD and post traumatic stress disorder. Unlike many therapeutic techniques, it does not look backward at the causes of distress, but on the 'here and now' looking to improve the way you think ('cognitive') and act ('behaviour'). It is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) for depression, advising that CBT may be offered to those experiencing mild depression on a self-help computer basis or via one to one sessions with a therapist over six to eight sessions. See the NICE webpage on CBT for full details. They caution that more severe depression may require up to twenty sessions. The website of the British Association for Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapies also has a helpful What is CBT? page.

The counsellors and therapists listed on this page and here have experience of using cognitive behavioural therapy as part of their therapeutic process, however please check the individual websites listed below to check the specific areas of expertise for each therapist, whether that is depression, anxiety disorders or other conditions which respond to CBT.

Other directory pages on this website also list broadly experienced and qualified counsellors and therapists who can help with depression and anxiety disorders - the therapists listed here have specifically highlighted cognitive behavioural therapy as an area of focus. You may find someone more local on the psychotherapy or general counselling pages. The specialist professional body membership to look for when considering a therapist offering CBT is the British Association for Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP), however the more general British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) is a highly respected and widely recognised professional association, with whom most counsellors register. Both BACP Registered counsellors and therapists and BABCP Registered therapists are bound by a Code of Ethics and Practice demanded by these professional bodies.

For a general overview of CBT, Wikipedia is a good resource, where you'll find a good explanation on their cognitive behavioural therapy page.
