Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT): CBT is a form of therapy that looks at how our thinking, attitudes, beliefs, opinions and behaviour were formed and how they affect our emotions, bodies, behaviours, lives and happiness and how changing them can helps us get better, feel better and achieve. The ideas and philosophies stem from ancient and modern philosophers, science, psychology, common sense and humanity. CBT is supported by a wealth of research, is used extensively by the NHS and recommended by NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence, for many emotional and psychological problems.
CBT stresses that we all have a capacity for creating, altering, and controlling our emotional states. It places much emphasis on currently-held attitudes, painful emotions, and unhelpful behaviours that can sabotage a happier experience of life. That is, it teaches people how to overcome past, present and future problems by focusing on and changing presently unhealthy beliefs.
CBT offers people proven techniques for solving problems. CBT practitioners work closely with their clients, seeking to help them uncover the beliefs (attitudes, expectations and personal rules) that frequently lead to emotional distress. It then provides a variety of methods to help people reformulate their unhealthy beliefs into more sensible, realistic and helpful ones by employing powerful techniques. Ultimately, it helps people to develop a philosophy and approach to living that can increase their effectiveness and happiness in many areas of life.
The College of Cognitive Behavioural Therapies (CCBT) was established to train adult learners, therapists and health-care professionals in the theory, practice, ethics and therapeutic applications of Cognitive Behavioural Therapies.
