At PsyVitalitï, we use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in our therapy services. Our team is all highly trained in the use of CBT and they use it to treat many different issues and mental health conditions.


An incredibly popular therapeutic approach, CBT is a talk therapy used in many clinical and professional settings. It involves goal setting and is designed as a short-term therapy that delivers fast, effective results. CBT focuses on the present and looks to your future well-being by giving you the tools to thrive.

At PsyVitalitï, our psychologists and therapists provide services to deal with many different issues, including alleviating the symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Conquer Depression

Depression is characterized by increased irritability, fatigue, overwhelming sadness, loss of interest in things you used to enjoy and a poor appetite. CBT is an effective tool in the treatment of depression and can be used to help you feel better once again. If you’re unsure whether what you’re experiencing is actually depression, we offer a depression self-test to help you better understand your options for therapy


Reduce & Manage Anxiety

Anxiety is a common condition, and many people suffer from it for a long time before they get help. CBT is used for a positive change in anxious thoughts and is an effective way to develop coping mechanisms. If you’re wondering whether you have anxiety, you can take our online anxiety self-test to find out and learn more about your therapy options.


If you’re suffering from something other than anxiety or depression, have no fear, CBT can also help with many other issues, including the following.

  • Phobias

  • Stress

  • Alcohol & Drug Use

  • Eating Disorders

  • Marriage Problems

  • Sleep Problems (Insomnia)
