Improving Minds Improving You
It is estimated that one in four people will experience mental health difficulties, such as depression and anxiety, at sometime in their lives. While many people can manage and self-improve their mental health well-being, others may be unable to do so due to the severity and influencing factors of their symptoms and difficulties, resulting in a debilitating and distressing experience. 
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is an evidenced based 'Talking Therapy' which has been proven to be effective in treating a wide range of mental health difficulties. The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommends and endorses CBT for the treatment of a number of disorders including; depression, anxiety, OCD, panic, and trauma (PTSD).
How CBT can help you
How we think about things has a direct effect on how we feel and behave. When our thoughts become troublesome we often change our behaviour to help cope with how we feel. This in turn encourages the development and maintainence of debilitating symptoms, such as anxiety and depression. CBT seeks to breakdown these cycles of destructive thoughts and behaviours while supporting you to adopt alternative and more healthier ways of thinking and behaving, thus reducing symptoms while improving health and well-being.
