What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a method that can help manage problems by changing the way patients would think and behave. It is not designed to remove any problems but help manage them in a positive manner  .
Behaviour therapy (BT) was developed in the 1950’s independently in three countries: South Africa, USA and England . It was further developed to Cognitive Therapy (CT) in the 1970’s by Dr Aaron Beck with its main application on people with depression, anxiety and eating disorders  . However, the main evidence today focuses on CBT, after the merging of BT and CT in the late 80’s .
