Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in London
What is CBT?
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy in which your therapist shows you how negative interactions between feelings, thoughts and behaviours fuel your problems. Your CBT therapist will work alongside you to help you learn alternative thinking patterns and behaviours which can help you improve the way you feel. CBT therapy focuses mostly on how you think and behave now, rather than on past issues. We provide CBT at several convenient locations across the city including Central London near Oxford Circus, and London City near Bank & Liverpool Street. We also offer CBT online.
