Emergencies in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a structured form of talking therapy. It has shown to be effective for a wide range of problems, particularly helping people who suffer from mild to moderate depression and anxiety based disorders and is recommended by the Department of Health and the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE). Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a form of therapy that aims to address how your problems are affecting you in the here-and-now. It involves developing an understanding as to how our suicidal thoughts, feelings and motro control and behaviors interact with each other in the development and maintenance of our problems. So for example, when people are depressed they are more likely to view aspects of their life in a negative way.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is a treatment approach that is based on the concept that the way we think effects how we respond emotionally and behaviourally. People can interpret the same life event very differently, leading to many & varied emotional & behavioural consequences. Some of these consequences can be helpful & some not so helpful in our day to day lives. As such CBT is also assumes then that people are disturbed not only by events in their lives but predominantly by their beliefs about those events. CBT has been successfully used to help with many different types of problems. These include: anxiety, depression, panic, phobias (including agoraphobia and social phobia), obsessive compulsive disorder, eating disorders, substance abuse disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder and psychotic disorders.
