Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) can help people who are experiencing a wide range of mental health difficulties. What people think can affect how they feel and how they behave. This is the basis of CBT.
During times of mental distress, people think differently about themselves and what happens to them. Thoughts can become extreme and unhelpful. This can worsen how a person feels. They may then behave in a way that prolongs their distress.
Many people find the following programmes helpful
