Cognitive Behaviour Therapy

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is a well researched psychotherapeutic approach based on scientific principles and extensive research has shown it to effective for a wide range of emotional problems including depression, anxiety disorders and chronic pain.

The underlying principles of CBT are by no means new. Such principles have been discussed since as early as the first century. Epictetus, a first century philosopher said `Men are disturbed not by things but by the view that they take of them`. Similar philosophies can be found throughout literature including Shakespeare and the Bible.

Over the years, as a result of our own personal experiences we develop patterns of thinking and behaving, which may be self-defeating and get in our way. The way we think profoundly influences the way we feel. By learning to think and act differently we can change the way we react to stressful situations and feel more in control of our lives.

CBT Therapists Natasha Goodchild and Gail Bennett have the relevant professional qualifications and are accredited by The British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies.
