At Talking Therapies we use cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to help manage stress, anxiety, phobias and depression. CBT is a talking therapy that can help problems by changing the way you think, behave and feel.


Unlike other talking therapies CBT is about tackling your current problems and doesn’t look back to the past. It focuses on practical ways you can improve your state of mind and aims to break down factors that are making you feel bad.


This video further explains how this psychological treatment works and who could benefit from it.
