What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy? 

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy - CBT is a highly structured and practical form of psychotherapy with a recognised scientific foundation and a proven pedigree covering over 70 years of extensive research and clinical practice. Unlike other forms of therapy and general counselling, CBT has a strong reputation as a highly structured and solution focused approach which consistently delivers concrete change and improvement for a wide range of anxiety conditions, personality and mood disorders. In addition to the scientific research and it’s clear focus on clinical methodology, CBT is has philosophical origins routed in the stoical tradition. This encourages clients to acknowledge pain and difficulty, whilst focusing on the internal perspectives and actions that help us to live a purposeful and fulfilling life. 

In partnership with our UK team of therapists from our Sevenoaks practice, we  can now deliver specialised Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in the Republic of Ireland, the Northern Irish counties and online using video sessions.

How Does CBT Work? 

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a scientifically derived form of psychotherapy that works on the psychological connections between thoughts, behaviours, emotions and physiological sensations. CBT is also underpinned by neuroscientific research demonstrating how the “hard-wired” connections between neural networks, patterns of cognition and behaviours, directly influence our emotional and physiological state. Where these patterns become engrained and maladaptive, this directly leads to clinical problems including anxiety conditions, mood disorders and personality disorder traits. The basic premise behind Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is that we can profoundly change emotional distress and physiological reactions by altering the content or patterns of negative thoughts and behaviours. Changes in cognitive and behavioural patterns have been found to directly alleviate conditions including Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Depression, Eating Disorders, Health Anxiety, OCD, Insomnia, PTSD, Social Phobia and wider problems such as low self-esteem. 

There is a strong clinical research base from the last 70 years or so which clearly demonstrates that Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is highly effective in the treatment of a wide range of psychological conditions. CBT is recommended by the Department of Health, Royal College of Psychiatry, Royal College of General Practitioners, British Psychological Society and the UK Council for Psychotherapy.
