How effective is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)?

Research has shown CBT to be highly effective and is the treatment of choice for a number of common mental health problems as indicated in The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence, (NICE) clinical guideline. http://www.nice.org.uk

  • The effectiveness of short-term CBT is well established for anxiety disorders, depression, obsessional problems, reactions to trauma and eating disorders.
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy has been clinically proven to work.
  • CBT has also been shown to be the most effective treatment for moderate and severe depression.
  • CBT works as well as antidepressants for many forms of depression. Evidence suggests that CBT may be better than antidepressants in helping anxiety.
  • CBT has also been shown to be effective for more complex emotional problems requiring longer term treatment.
  • Evidence also suggests that CBT can have lasting changes and help prevent future relapse. (Royal College of Psychiatrist).
