How CBT can help

CBT is the most effective way of treating many psychiatric and medical conditions such as:
• Depression
• Bipolar Affective Disorder
• Panic Disorder
• Generalised Anxiety Disorder
• Social Anxiety Disorder
• Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
• Schizophrenia
• Substance addiction
• Alcohol Addiction
• Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia
• Sexual Disorders
• Gambling addiction
• Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
• Impulsiveness and aggression
• Stress

However, this approach is also very effective in situations or at special moments in life that are not depicted as psychiatric disorders such as relationship conflicts, professional conflicts, professional orientation, bereavement, self-knowledge, etc.

Importantly, in acute cases or in situations of marked distress, it is essential that the therapy is combined with medication that is prescribed and monitored by a psychiatrist or GP.
