Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) aims to help you to change the way that you think, feel and behave. It is used as a treatment for various mental health and physical problems.
CBT can be delivered face-to-face via a therapist, using computer programmes online to work through using CBT principles (computerised CBT) or using books/leaflets to work through using principles of CBT (CBT bibliotherapy). Below are some resources regarding how to access computerised and/or CBT bibliotherapy. We hope that you find these useful.
