CBT is a type of psychological talking therapy. Since the 1960's it has been increasingly used to treat anxiety and depression for both children and adults. Due to the success of CBT - various studies have shown how it is also helping people manage the impact from physical illness and /or long term conditions.
CBT is generally short term therapy. Therefore depending on a person’s difficulties, sessions can range from 6-20. CBT is considered the gold standard of psychological treatment and is widely used by the NHS today and has been recommended by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) as the most appropriate treatment for anxiety disorders and depression
