Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a therapy that aims to change how you
feel and think about your problems, using trauma focused techniques. The
therapist aims to help you come to terms with what has happened to you.
They will ask you to talk about the traumatic memories and help you deal with
any distress you feel. When there is improvement they may suggest that you
reach out to people you have avoided or even take up activities or visit places
that you have been avoiding.
They will help you gain control of your fear and change the negative way you
feel about it.
The courses are typically short term – between six and twelve weeks and it works on a cycle of your thoughts, feelings, physical well being and behaviour are all connected. If one is out then you become trapped.
