If you hunt the archives of the forum, you;ll find many descriptions of this and many testimonials from people who have found it very useful for them.
CBT is Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy, of all currently available methods of psychotherapy ( talking therapy ) the one with the most good quality reseach showing that it has lasting benefits in a range of situations. If you goggle Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy, you'll also find laods of material describing this method, which basically works to identify, test, and modify the self-defeating and fruitless habits of thought and behaviour we develop, and which are central to many different problems, and to enable us to unlearn the bad habits and re-learn more fruitful ways of dealing with life.
