Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)?

Cognitive behavioural therapy, or CBT, was conceptualised and developed by doctors in the 1960s.

In establishing that humans have automatic thoughts (cognitions) and that these thoughts are nurtured, they looked at developing a way to change these ‘automatic thoughts’.

They established that these cognitions in the sufferer had a negative bias when looking at themselves, the world or the future and that they could be largely responsible for depression.

CBT looks at addressing and amending these thoughts with the result that the client feels emotionally better and behaves in a more productive and healthy manner.

Ultimately, CBT is about changing behaviour through feelings and thoughts, and this has subsequently been proven to work when addressing many mental health issues.
