Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) refers to a set of interventions that are derived from a strong scientific base of knowledge about human behaviour. This class of therapies has a very strong evidence base for significant functional and symptomatic improvement, not only in mental health conditions such as mood disorders and anxiety disorders but in a broad range of physical health conditions such as fibromyalgia, chronic headache, chronic low back pain, other chronic pain syndromes, chronic fatigue syndrome, and irritable bowel syndrome.

Cognitive behavioural therapy can be used as a stand-alone unidisciplinary intervention, or can be incorporated into interdisciplinary treatment with medical and physical therapies.

Odyssey Health Services utilizes a Behavioural or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) model of intervention.  CBT and graded exercise are the only interventions with scientifically demonstrated effectiveness for chronic fatigue, and has proven to be effective for fibromyalgia and chronic headache and pain.

Behavioural and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy involve the systematic application of scientifically supported interventions to assist patients in changing their behaviour, their thoughts, their emotions, and symptoms such as pain and fatigue. 

The behavioural element fundamentally involves increasing the frequency of well behaviours that generally consist of adaptive functional behaviour that is incompatible with illness, as well as decreasing the frequency of maladaptive or dysfunctional illness behaviour. 

The cognitive element is based upon the presumption that patients' perceptions, thoughts and beliefs can have a major impact upon their physiology, their behaviour and their mood. The cognitive element of intervention involves a variety of techniques to assist the patient in examining both the validity and the utility of their cognitions and facilitating change to more adaptive thoughts and beliefs. 

The application of these techniques to pain and fatigue requires significant experience in the psychology and physiology of pain and fatigue as well as understanding the relationship between behaviours, emotions, thoughts, expectations, beliefs and patients symptoms and how they cope with their symptoms. 

At times cognitive behavioural intervention may require assisting the patient in learning to accept their symptoms and function in spite of them, rather than focusing exclusively on eliminating the symptoms.

When used to treat depression and anxiety, CBT produces results similar to medication in mild to moderate cases, enhances the effectiveness of medication in more severe cases, and helps prevent relapse.
