Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)


Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a widely recognised and effective form of therapy that focuses on the connection between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. Our CBT in Macclesfield aims to empower you to identify and challenge unhelpful thought patterns that contribute to emotional distress and negative behaviours.

    What Issues Can CBT Help With?

    CBT can be a valuable tool in managing a variety of mental health challenges, including the following issues:

    • Anxiety: By recognising and restructuring negative thought patterns that fuel anxiety, CBT can help you manage worry, reduce physical symptoms, and develop coping strategies for anxiety-provoking situations.
    • Depression: CBT helps you identify negative thinking styles that contribute to depression. It equips you with skills to challenge these thoughts, develop a more positive outlook, and increase motivation and engagement in activities you once enjoyed.
    • Phobias: Through gradual exposure to phobic triggers in a safe and controlled environment, CBT can help you overcome irrational fears and improve your quality of life.
    • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD): CBT can also help you identify triggers for intrusive thoughts and compulsive behaviours. It equips you with strategies to resist compulsions and manage OCD symptoms more effectively.
    • Anger Management: CBT helps you become more aware of the situations and thoughts that trigger your anger. You’ll learn skills to express your feelings assertively and manage your anger in a healthy way.
    • Stress: By identifying your personal stressors and developing coping mechanisms, CBT can equip you with tools to manage stress more effectively and improve your overall well-being.
