Cognitive-behaviour therapy (CBT) is a practical, short-term form of therapy. It helps people to develop skills and strategies for becoming and staying healthy.
CBT focuses on the present- here-and-now—on the problems that come up in day-to-day life. CBT helps people to examine how they make sense of what is happening around them and how these perceptions affect the way they feel. By changing our thoughts we can change what we do, feel better, worry less and change our lives.
