Online Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

What Is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Useful For?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is useful in the treatment of:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety Disorders

Additionally, CBT can also help with anger management, sleep disruption, low self-esteem and a range of physical health problems.

What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?

CBT is a talking therapy that focuses on the theory that how our body feels is connected directly to our thoughts, feelings, and actions.

CBT helps us recognise and alter our problematic thought styles and behavioural patterns to help us feel mentally and physically better.

How does online CBT work?

Initially, you’ll work with your therapist to break down your issues into separate parts: dividing the situation from your thoughts, and your physical feelings from your actions.

In most cases, you keep a journal, documenting your behaviours and your thoughts, which you’ll discuss with your therapist during your session. Together, you’ll determine whether your thoughts, actions, and behaviours were realistic and helpful – and determine the effect they have had on you where they weren’t.

Through this process, you’ll identify the unhelpful behaviours that are holding you back. And you’ll be given homework to practice changes within your everyday life that negate the negative effect of the unhelpful behaviours; and replace them with helpful actions and thoughts.

CBT, from there, focuses on a range of methods to solidify those positive behaviours into your life.

Does CBT really work?

There’s a comprehensive evidence base around the efficacy of CBT counselling, and it has become one of the most widely used and popular therapeutic methods for both patients and therapists.
