Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioural therapies are a range of talking therapies based on the principle that thoughts, feelings, what we do and how our body feels are all associated. If we alter one of these we can change the others. When people feel worried or upset we often fall into patterns of thinking and reacting which can amplify how we feel. CBT works to help us notice and modify problematic thinking styles or behaviour patterns so we can feel restored. CBT has lots of strategies that can help you in the here and now.

There is a good evidence base for a CBT being effective for a wide range of mental health problems. NICE recommends CBT in the treatment of the following conditions:

  • Anxiety disorders (including panic attacks and post-traumatic stress disorder)
  • Depression
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Schizophrenia and psychosis
  • Bipolar disorder

I had lost my role as a policeman due to my PTSD symptoms in response to incidents I witnessed. I thought I would never feel well again. Mark gave me hope and purpose. He was patient and delicate around the challenging therapy we worked on and I can truly say he changed my life, I am so grateful. He is the consummate professional.
