WHAT IS COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY? (CBT)

Cognitive (Thoughts) Behavioural (Behaviour) Therapy (Treatment)

CBT helps you to change how you think and what you do as a result of these thoughts. Unlike other therapies, it looks at how to improve your state of mind in the here and now, instead of focusing on the causes of your distress.

 

Our experiences as humans, can shape our beliefs and these beliefs can shape our behaviour, through the thoughts and feelings associated with them. CBT helps you to recognise and challenge these beliefs and change the thinking errors associated with them.

 

CBT is a collaborative (joint working) therapy. This means that the therapist and client work together to establish common goals. Working collaboratively can help clients to develop higher levels of thinking skills, build self-worth and enhance self-management skills, which will enable and support you in your journey once therapy ends.

The CBT Model

Research provides strong evidence that the thoughts we have, control the feelings we have and our feelings determine our actions.

For example: If your partner comes home late from work frequently, the way you think and make sense about the situation will affect how you feel and what you do about it. Such that if you think they are having an affair, you might feel sad or angry and hence confront them. Whereas, if you thought they were working hard for the family, your actions would be very different.

Research also provides strong evidence that our perception can be distorted through the beliefs we hold about ourselves, other people and the world.
