Cognitive Behavioural Therapists combine cognitive therapy and behavioural therapy. Their work centres on how individuals think, how thoughts influence behaviour and the way emotional problems are dealt with. They find ways to help clients change thoughts and behaviour patterns, which in turn can help the way they feel.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapists' may be from any background, but will have completed advanced training and gained extensive experience before accreditation by the British Association for Behavioural Pyschotherapy (BABCP).
CBT has a good evidence base for a wide range of mental health problems for both children and adults. The research has been carefully reviewed by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), who provide independent, evidence-based guidance for the NHS on the most effective ways to treat psychological difficulties.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapists may have gone on to undertake postgraduate training in a number of other therapies too.
Our Cognitive Behavioural Therapists are based across West and North Yorkshire as well as in Newcastle.
