There are different types of therapy available and it can be confusing to know what may be best for you. The most common forms of therapy are CBT and counselling. CBT is clinically recommended as treatment for common mental health difficulties.
CBT is not only for treating mental ill health. It can also help promote mental wellbeing and prevent illness. For example, stress, low self-esteem and perfectionism can be risk factors for mental health problems such as anxiety and depression.
