How does CBT work?

One in four people experience a mental health problem in the course of a year. Often this has a huge impact on how a person manages in their day-to-day life and how they feel emotionally. CBT therapy helps in two main ways, by looking at what a person is doing (behaviour) and what they are thinking (cognitions) and developing more helpful patterns and habits because when a person is experiencing mental health difficulties it is their unhelpful thoughts and behaviours which cause distress. Below is a diagram showing how everything links up.
