Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

IAPT is the NHS programme which supports rolling out NICA guideline-recommended talking therapies to people experiencing depression and anxiety disorders. Usually produces two types of physiological therapy:

- High intensity therapy (usually cognitive behavioural therapy; for people with moderate and severe depression and anxiety).

Or

- Low intensity therapy (usually cognitive behavioural approaches, including guided self-help and psychoeducational groups; for people with mild to moderate depression and anxiety).


In some areas, self-referral to IAPT services is possible; in other areas referrals need to be made by a person’s GP. IAPT services often also have employment services or links to other services such as housing, drugs and benefits advice.
Go to www.nhs.uk and search for “IAPT” to find local services.
