Cognitive Behavioural Therapy News and Research

RSS
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is essentially a form of psychotherapy or counselling that may benefit people with mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder and panic disorder. This form of therapy cannot cure mental health problems but can help an individual to cope with the symptoms in a more positive way. The therapy also helps individuals to modify their thought patterns and behaviour in a way that helps them lead a life that is as normal as possible.
