Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive behavioural therapy or CBT is a therapeutic approach that aims to solve problems which are associated with dysfunctional emotions, behaviours and thoughts through a goal-oriented, systematic talking procedure with a therapist along with day to day practice outside the therapy office. Treatment is often supported through use of a manual. The techniques used in this therapy are often directive and brief in nature. There is research evidence that CBT is effective for the treatment of a variety of problems, including mood, anxiety, and personality problems.
