Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) suggests CBT for
  • Body Dysmorphia
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Panic

CBT concentrates on how your thoughts (cognitions) influence your feelings and actions. It identifies and addresses unhelpful ideas that perpetuate the problems you experience. The objective of cognitive behavioural therapy is for you to have healthier thoughts and feelings.

Counselling

NICE suggests counselling for Depression.

Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You decide what matter regarding your early years and/or adult life you discuss. An aim of counselling is to help you to speak about a problem and discover a way forward that is right for you.
