What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) explores the links between thoughts, emotions and behaviour. It is a directive, time-limited, structured approach used to treat a variety of mental health disorders. It aims to alleviate distress by helping patients to develop more adaptive cognitions and behaviours. It is the most widely researched and empirically supported psychotherapeutic method. This strong evidence base is reflected in clinical guidelines, which recommend it as a treatment for many common mental health disorders. At Cambridge and Ely counselling service we use an integrative approach to counselling which incorporates the use of CBT methods.
