The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) suggests CBT for
  • Alcohol Dependence
  • Bipolar
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Panic

  • Social Anxiety
Cognitive behavioural therapy focuses on how your thoughts (cognitions) affect your emotions and actions. It recognises and challenges unhelpful ideas which perpetuate the issues you experience. The objective of cognitive behavioural therapy is for you to experience healthier thoughts and emotions.

Counselling

NICE suggests counselling for Depression.

Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You determine which matter concerning your childhood and/or adult life you explore. An aim of counselling is to help you to talk about a difficulty and find a solution which is appropriate for you.

Psychodynamic Therapy

NICE suggests psychodynamic therapy for
  • Depression
