CBT is a structured collaborative form of therapy. CBT is a short-term therapy and involves developing an understanding of how our thoughts, feelings and behaviours interact with each other in the development and maintenance of our problems.
CBT is a proactive form of therapy whereby the therapist and client work together and consider various ways of understanding and challenging current problems to enable positive change.
