CBT for anxiety –

Better nights are ahead

The NHS recommends that people with anxiety disorder are offered cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) as their first treatment. Daylight is the NHS-recommended digital treatment for worry and anxiety. It’s fully funded by the NHS in Scotland, so entirely free for you as a patient.

Daylight is designed for you to use how you want, when you want. We recommend using Daylight for a few minutes each day. This will speed up your learning and help you feel better faster. Our research indicates that many people begin to see benefits after using the programme consistently for 3 to 4 weeks, and see more lasting changes to negative thought patterns after 6 weeks of regular use.

How does cognitive behavioural therapy work?

How we think affects how we feel and act
What we feel affects how we think and act
What we do affects how we think and feel

Treatment guidelines recommend CBT for anxiety as the first-choice intervention to help improve a range of issues. CBT aims to help you deal with overwhelming problems in a more positive way by breaking them down into smaller parts. You’re shown how to change these negative patterns to improve the way you feel. Unlike some other talking treatments, CBT deals with your current problems, rather than focusing on issues from your past.
