Cognitive behavioural therapy (often called CBT) is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave.

It is mostly used to treat anxiety and depression but can also be used in the treatment of schizophrenia.

It is an evidence-based and structured form of psychotherapy that aims to alter the unhelpful thinking (cognitions) and behaviour that commonly occur during times of distress. The model is fully compatible with the use of medication if this is indicated.

Online courses, such as Living Life to the Full, are available but results are best achieved if you have someone supporting you with the course.
