WHAT IS CBT?


 

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, also known as CBT, is a form of psychotherapy. It is used to help treat patients with a variety mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, OCD and social anxiety disorder.


The principals of CBT can be applied to help patients reach their weight loss goals, help them quit smoking, and manage their interpersonal relationships, to name a few.


The idea is to teach patients a practical approach to problem-solving, through challenging the way they think in order to change the way they feel and behave.
