Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a form of counselling that is used to treat many conditions, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), eating disorders, and physical conditions like fibromyalgia. CBT helps people with coping, so is often used in conjunction with anxiety and stress management, and smoking cessation treatments as well. CBT often focuses more on current thoughts, patterns and situations rather than delving into your past or childhood. CBT is available on the NHS for people with depression or any other mental health problem that it has been shown to help.
