Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is a short term, focused approach to the treatment of many types of emotional, behavioural and psychiatric problems.

The application of CBT varies according to the problem being addressed, but is essentially a collaborative and individualised program that helps individuals to identify unhelpful thoughts and behaviours and learn or relearn healthier skills and habits.

CBT has been practised widely for more than 30 years. It has been researched extensively, and has demonstrated effectiveness with a variety of emotional psychological and psychiatric difficulties.

It has evolved over the years and related CBT therapies such as Mindfulness Based Cogntiive Therapy (MBCT), and Acceptance and Committment Therapy (ACT), among others, are increasingly being used for a variety of emotional, behavioural and psychiatric problems.
