Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in Exeter and Torquay

Talk-based therapy

What is CBT?

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a routine psychological treatment which is used to effectively treat a range of common mental health issues, including stress, depression, PTSD, anxiety, or phobias. As a talk-based therapy, CBT treatment looks into how you think, teaching you to become more aware of your thinking processes and helping you change how you cope with challenging situations.

CBT has been researched extensively, is widely practised, and has consistently proved successful as a treatment. As a result, CBT helps you understand or recognise other people’s behaviour or motivation while giving you the skills to cope with difficult situations before you act or respond in a positive and self-reassuring way.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

CBT works because it’s transparent, collaborative, goal-focused, and has structure. Rather than looking at past events and what led you to seek therapy, CBT focuses on what’s going on in your life right now. But it also helps you create long-term strategies to move forward and develop a better way of coping with your life.

The foundations of CBT make it an accessible, informal, and friendly therapy, making it an ideal treatment for:

  • General or social anxiety
  • Child anxiety disorders and child depression
  • Child behaviour problems
  • Panic and panic disorder
  • OCD and other disorders
  • Phobias
  • PTSD
  • Depression
  • Brain injury
  • Sexual Dysfunction
  • Relationship problems
  • Anger and stress management

But CBT can also be used alongside counselling and other therapies, including Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), to treat an even wider range of mental health conditions.
