Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a widely used and evidence-based form of talking therapy/psychotherapy. It aims to help people address unhelpful thinking patterns and ways of responding (behaviours) that can worsen how they feel. The approach has been widely researched and recommended by national guidelines for the treatment of depression, anxiety and phobias.
