Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

CBT concentrates on how your thoughts affect your feelings and actions. It recognises and challenges negative ideas which maintain the issues you encounter. The objective of cognitive behavioural therapy is for you to have healthier thoughts and emotions.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) suggests cognitive behavioural therapy for depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), panic disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and substance dependence.


Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You determine which issue regarding your early years and/or adulthood you discuss. An objective of counselling is to enable you to talk about a difficulty and find a solution that is right for you.


Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you obtaining insight into the problems you face. It considers your thoughts, emotions and significant events in your history. Psychotherapy intends to help you change or discover appropriate ways of managing.
