Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)

Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) is a short-term, goal-oriented treatment that takes a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving. CBT aims to change the patterns of thinking patterns that cause emotional difficulty and alter the behaviour associated with it.  

For adults, CBT can help treat a wide range of issues including relationship problems, insomnia, addiction, anxiety and depression. For children, CBT helps address behavioural and emotional challenges or learning difficulties such as ADHD. 

CBT works by analysing attitudes and behaviour through the thoughts, images and beliefs associated with these behaviours. The process provides a deeper understanding of the causes of behaviour, allowing the opportunity to change reactions and behaviour to these causes.
