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 [1] [2].

Behaviour therapy (BT) was developed in the 1950’s independently in three countries: South Africa, USA and England [3]. 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 [1] [4]. However, the main evidence today focuses on CBT, after the merging of BT and CT in the late 80’s [5].
