Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is a relatively short-term, client-focused approach to the treatment of many types of emotional, behavioural, and psychiatric problems. The aim of CBT is to help identify the origins of, and change unhealthy thinking patterns (automatic or habitual), feelings, and behaviours, by uncovering their origins which are often developed at a very young age.  CBT encompasses many therapeutic approaches, techniques and systems.  

Some of the more commonly used ones used today include: Mindfulness, Acceptance, and Commitment, Behaviour Activation, Systematic Desensitization CBT (for Phobias and Panic Attacks), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (for PTSD), Positive Psychology, and Relapse Prevention (for Addiction).
