Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a science. It is a proven method that helps change our thought patterns for a healthier and happier way of living. The human brain is a miracle. It constantly creates thoughts and interpretations of the events you’re experiencing… and you can harness its great power.
Changing the Way You Think About Your Life
If you struggle with anger, fear or depression, you may have built harmful patterns that deter your ability to cope with real life situations. What starts as initial thoughts or ideas may have progressed into anxious moods, behaviours and ultimately, physical responses.
Through CBT, your therapist works with you to outline the sources of your concern. They also help to identify patterns of unhelpful thoughts. As you work through these patterns, your therapist helps you develop a tool kit to undermine those patterns and cope more resiliently. As you progress through therapy, you build coping skills and are able to think more clearly and positively about everyday activities.
CBT is evidence-based psychological treatment and has been proven effective since its development nearly 45 years ago. As Therapists have used CBT, its methods have been developed into an effective and powerful experience. CBT is essentially a goal-driven plan. Your Therapist works with you to determine those goals, stopping to determine “is this working” at regular intervals.
