CBT has been shown to be effective and is a recommended and widely used treatment for the following anxiety difficulties:
- Generalised Anxiety
- Panic, with or without Agoraphobia
- Health anxiety
- Social anxiety
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
When treating anxiety, therapy has been shown to be a far more effective solution than medication. This is because therapy does not just deal with the presenting symptoms of anxiety, but can target the underlying cause too. CBT can help you discover the original roots of your worries, fears or anxiety, and can then equip you with strategies to enable you to view situations in a less threatening way and develop more effective coping strategies. CBT can provide you with the tools to conquer anxiety and teaches you how to use them independently.
