What are Five Areas and Living Life resources?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an evidence based talking therapy that can help common problems such as stress, low mood, panic, phobias and more. The Living Life to the Full approach was developed by Dr Chris Williams and aims to provide an easily understood and applied range of life skills courses based on the CBT approach.

The Living Life to the Full approach encourages people to think about the impact on symptoms on five key areas of their life – their thoughts, feelings, physical symptoms, and behaviour/activity levels together with looking at the impact of the people and events around them. It is one of the most used CBT models in the world with award winning websites and books.

A range of research studies plus linked research studies have been published. www.fiveareas.com/evidence-base
