Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that works on the premise that your thoughts, feelings and behaviours are linked. CBT helps you to identify unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaviour, and then allows you to learn new ways of dealing with situations.
How is it used to treat depression and anxiety disorders?
CBT is a type of therapy that focuses on changing your thought patterns, or “cognitions,” to help you manage your mental health conditions.
CBT can be used to treat a range of mental health conditions, including depression and anxiety disorders. It’s often used in conjunction with medication as part of a treatment plan. CBT may also provide some relief from symptoms without the side effects that come with taking medications for these conditions such as nausea or drowsiness (1).
If you’re considering using CBT for yourself or someone else who has been diagnosed with one of these disorders: know that it’s an effective form of treatment–but it doesn’t work for everyone! Everyone experiences their own unique set of emotions when dealing with depression or anxiety; therefore there’s no single method that works best across all people affected by these diseases (2).
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a widely used form of therapy that works on the premise that your thoughts, feelings and behaviours are linked.
CBT is based on the idea that your thoughts, feelings and behaviours are linked. It works by helping you to identify unhelpful or inaccurate ways of thinking (cognitions), which may be contributing to distressing symptoms. For example, if you have a phobia about spiders and think that spiders are dangerous and will hurt you if they get near you, then this thought may lead to anxiety when you see one in real life. In CBT for phobias like this one would learn how to challenge these kinds of irrational beliefs using techniques such as exposure therapy (whereby someone slowly gets used to whatever they fear).
CBT is used widely as an evidence-based treatment for many different mental health problems including depression, anxiety disorders like PTSD and OCD; eating disorders like bulimia nervosa; substance abuse problems such as alcohol dependence; personality disorders such as histrionic personality disorder or borderline personality disorder; schizophrenia-like psychosis known as schizoaffective disorder

CBT is a form of therapy that can be used to treat a range of mental health issues, including depression and anxiety disorders. The key to CBT is that it works on the premise that your thoughts, feelings and behaviours are linked together in a cycle known as “cognitive distortions”. By identifying these distortions and working through them with a therapist (or on your own), you can break out of this cycle and start making positive changes in your life.
