Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) has been proven effective in treating a wide range of clinical issues and disorders. CBT is based on the idea that our thoughts about a situation affect how we feel and behave in that situation. In CBT, individuals become aware of the links between their feelings, thoughts and behaviours. CBT is short term and practical. Individuals learn how to understand their emotions, change unwanted behaviours and adopt realistic and balanced thinking. This, in turn, positively influences their mood and leads to desirable outcomes.
