Trauma-Focused CBT (TF-CBT) is a specific type of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy targeted to help individuals with trauma, complex trauma, and PTSD. Initially created out of a desire to understand the difficulties faced by trauma sufferers, this evidence-based therapy method is designed to reduce the symptoms of trauma, and provide a restored quality of life. TF-CBT is provided by our specialist trauma therapists, helping individuals with trauma, complex trauma and PTSD to identify and re-regulate their emotions.
How Does Trauma-Focused CBT Work?
Within TF-CBT, a variety of techniques and interventions can be used, which are specifically tailored to meet the needs of each individual. These behavioural techniques aim to help to modify distorted thinking and negative reactions that are present after a traumatic experience. As a skills-based therapy, our trauma therapists provide sufferers with effective tools to challenge their invasive thoughts, and regain a sense of control, self-confidence and predictability.
What Problems Does TF-CBT Help?
Trauma-Focused CBT is a form of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy – a psychological therapy that has been demonstrated to be effective for a range of problems. TF-CBT is specifically designed to help those with trauma, complex trauma and PTSD to process their painful memories, resulting from experiencing or witnessing distressing events. These traumatic events may have triggered a range of symptoms including flashbacks, nightmares, anger issues and mood problems. Trauma-Focused CBT teaches individuals with these symptoms to manage difficult emotions in a healthier way.
