The National Health Service (NHS) states that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a talking treatment which treats any current issues you are facing today rather than focusing on any past issues. Many professionals favour this approach as CBT is based on the concept that your feelings, thoughts and physical senses are all interconnected and any negative feelings can trap you in a brutal circle.
CBT is a practical approach that helps you deal with overpowering thoughts and feelings. The goal of CBT is to change patterns of intrusive thoughts or behaviour by breaking down your problems into separate parts and analyse these areas to determine the negative effect they have. Eventually, your therapist will assist you in managing your issues by dealing with them in a healthy way.
