Since multiple people in the UK are asking about Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, we have taken the liberty to make a few basic things known about the therapy. According to Healthline:
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a treatment approach that helps you recognize negative or unhelpful thoughts and behaviour patterns. CBT aims to help you identify and explore the ways your emotions and thoughts can affect your actions. Once you notice these patterns, you can begin learning how to change your behaviours and develop new coping strategies.Healthline
In case you are asked about Cognitive Behavioural Therapy as a caregiver, here are three basic things you should know about the therapy:
- CBT can help mental disorders that include but are not limited to PTSD, OCD, panic disorders, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, substance abuse and depression.
- CBT is not a cure, it will help address the issues you are facing but it will not probably eliminate them completely and they could still persist after you stop the therapy. Also bear in mind, it is not a quick fix, results will take time.
- CBT can also be used to help overcome grief, loss, insomnia, chronic pain, serious health diagnosis, relationship issues, divorce or breakups and general stress.
