Psychotherapy & Cognitive Behaviour Therapy

Psychotherapy is a therapy used to treat emotional problems and mental health conditions. It involves talking to a trained therapist and allows you to look deeper into your problems and worries, and deal with troublesome habits and a wide range of mental health problems, emotional challenges, and some psychiatric disorders.

It aims to enable patients, or clients, to understand their feelings, and what makes you feel positive, anxious, or depressed. This can equip you to cope with difficult situations in a more adaptive way. Psychotherapy can provide help with a range of problems, from depression and low self-esteem to addiction and family disputes.

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. It's most commonly used to treat anxiety and depression, but can be useful for other mental and physical health problems.
