Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioural therapy concentrates on how your thoughts affect your feelings and actions. It identifies and addresses unhelpful ideas that perpetuate the issues you experience. The objective of cognitive behavioural therapy is for you to have healthier thoughts and feelings.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends cognitive behavioural therapy for depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), panic disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and social anxiety disorder.


Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You determine what issue regarding your childhood and/or adulthood you explore. An objective of counselling is to enable you to speak about a problem and discover a way forward that is appropriate for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.


Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you obtaining insight into the problems you confront. It explores your ideas, emotions and relevant events in your history. Psychotherapy aims to help you develop or discover suitable ways of managing.
