What is Cognitive Behaviour Therapy?

CBT stands for Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, a form of psychotherapy which was developed in the 1950's by Dr Albert Ellis and Dr Aaron Beck. CBT is based on the principle that people experience psychological problems largely because they hold rigid and self-defeating irrational beliefs about themselves, others, or the world. Our thinking affects how we feel and behave. Peter helps his client’s to identify unhealthy thinking and behaviour patterns and works alongside them to challenge these and bring about positive change.
