Welcome to Tribe CBT

Stressed? Anxious? Depressed? Worried? 

Most of us will experience unpleasant emotions such as feeling low and anxious from time to time. This is part of being human and sometimes these feelings will be short lived. However, if these emotions become unmanageable and are impacting on you day to day it may be time to seek support.  

Approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK and 1 in 6 globally will experience a common mental health problem such as depression and anxiety; if left untreated this can impact on physical health, work, relationships and leisure activities. 

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) has been shown to be an effective treatment for common mental health problems and has been considered the 'gold standard' therapy. CBT is also recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) for the treatment of depression and anxiety disorder. To find out more please visit NICE

The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

When we feel strong emotions such as anxiety and depression we often fall into patterns of thinking and responding which can worsen how we feel. 

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a form of talking therapy that helps people recognise these patterns by helping to identify how thoughts (cognitions) can affect what we do (behaviours) and how we feel (emotions).

In CBT, we think that it is not just what happens to us (external events) that affects how we feel but also our thoughts and behaviours. The way in which we can view situations may be unhelpful and can affect how we feel and what we do.

Identifying such patterns and learning new skills to make changes can make us feel much better. 

CBT has been shown to help with many different problems. These include:

  • Anxiety,

  • Depression,

  • Panic Disoder

  • Phobias (including agoraphobia and social phobia),

  • Stress,

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

CBT may also help if you have difficulties with anger, a low opinion of yourself or physical health problems, like chronic pain or fatigue.
