Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

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

CBT concentrates on how your thoughts (cognitions) affect your feelings and actions. It recognises and challenges unhelpful thoughts which perpetuate the problems you experience. The objective of cognitive behavioural therapy is for you to have healthier thoughts and emotions.


NICE suggests counselling for Depression.

Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You determine which matter regarding your childhood and/or adulthood you explore. The aim of counselling is to help you to talk about a difficulty and discover a solution which is appropriate for you.
