What is CBT?

CBT is a psychological therapy that works on the relationships between thoughts (cognitions), behaviours and feelings.  CBT teaches the individual how to recognise and tackle problems here and now, rather than in the past.  It has been widely studied and has been proven to work especially on depression and anxiety.

How to use Silver Cloud?

We recommended use SilverCloud 40 minutes per week, over 6-8 weeks at a regular time if you can about 3 or 4 times a week about 10-15 minutes when you have time to yourself for example on your lunch breaks, on the bus home, in the evening, when the kids are in bed.  As with most things, it may take time and practice to make progress.
