CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy)

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is an approach which is used to promote positive change in individuals, to help alleviate emotional distress, and to address
many behavioural/social issues.

CBT is based on the idea that our thoughts cause our feelings and behaviours, not external things, like people, situations and events.

The benefit of this fact is that we can change the way that we think to act/feel better, even if the situation does not change.

The aims and goals of CBT are to restructure one’s thoughts, beliefs and perceptions.

Such restructuring facilitates emotional and behavioural change.

During CBT, coping skills and abilities are assessed and further developed.

What can change

You can learn how to think differently through many techniques, Automatic Thoughts are identified, evaluated and modified, Core Beliefs are assessed, evaluated and modified (if necessary) and the restructuring of one’s thoughts, perceptions and beliefs.

You are encouraged to unlearn unwanted reactions and learn a new way of reacting.

You can change as you will learn how to think differently and you will act on the learning.

Every effort will be made by me to help resolve or achieve your presenting issue, however, there
are no promises or guarantee made that you will find resolution.
All therapy requires the you to be committed to change and be prepared to make the effort to make
that change a reality in your life.
