Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) suggests CBT for
  • Alcohol Dependence
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • OCD
  • Panic
  • PTSD
  • Social Anxiety
Cognitive behavioural therapy concentrates on how your thoughts (cognitions) influence your feelings and actions. It recognises and addresses negative ideas which maintain the issues you encounter. The objective of CBT 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 what issue concerning your childhood and/or adult life you explore. An objective of counselling is to help you to talk about a problem and discover a solution that is right for you.

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you gaining insight into the difficulties you confront. It considers your ideas, emotions and relevant moments in your life. Psychotherapy intends to help you develop or find appropriate methods of managing.

Thoughts on Mental Health

One aspect of OCD that might be experienced is intrusive thoughts of causing harm to someone. These kind of thoughts are actually quite common, but where others might dismiss or forget about such thoughts, OCD might develop when a particular significance is attached to them. For example, you might have an argument with your partner and think 'I could kill them', or feel anger at someone you work with and think about hitting them. With OCD, you may confuse the thought with the action, for example by believing that having the thought means you are likely to carry out the action. To reduce your anxiety about this, you might then try to avoid triggers for having that thought, e.g. being in meetings with your colleague, seeing newspaper reports about domestic violence, or situations where you believe the action could take place, such as being near knives or being alone with colleagues. However, these avoidance patterns are actually likely to increase how often you have the intrusive thoughts and the anxiety you feel when you have them.
