Types of Talking Therapies

There are different types of talking therapies and they suit different people. Some people may find that one type of therapy is more suited to them than another. 

The different type of talking therapies are:

  • Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) – This type of therapy helps you to change how you think so you can be free of unhelpful behaviours. 
  • Behavioural activation – Behavioural activation is a type of therapy that works to help those who have depression. It centres around making small but positive changes. 
  • Guided self-help – Guided self-help is a type of talking therapy that is usually recommended for people suffering from panic disorder, anxiety, or depression.
  • Counselling – This type of therapy can be useful if you have an addiction, chronic pain, or fertility problems.
  • Interpersonal therapy (IPT) – IPT helps those who have depression and it allows people to address any problems they have with their family, friends, and partners. 
  • Eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR) – Helping those with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), EMDR helps the brain to reprocess memories of the patient’s traumatic event. 
  • Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) – This type of therapy can help you to focus on your feelings and thoughts as they happen. MBCT is often used to help treat addiction and depression. 

If you are considering having therapy you can self-refer without visiting your GP. However, if you are struggling, it’s always worth speaking to your GP.  

For help with anxiety, depression, PTSD, OCD and other conditions, you can self-refer here if you are over 18 years of age and live in England.
