What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?
Cognitive behavioural therapy, or CBT, has a relatively long history as a well-respected therapeutic tool and is utilised by registered professionals the world over. The effectiveness of CBT has been well-recorded and studied since its inception in the 1960s. Having looked to the ancient practice of Stoicism for its philosophical inspiration, practically speaking the therapy emerged when psychologists merged two formally distinct methods (cognitive therapy and behavioural therapy) whilst treating WWII veterans. The result of this merge has brought us what we know as CBT today, the success of the treatment speaking for itself. For CBT in Surrey, think Surrey Psychology.
