What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is premised on the idea that thoughts, moods, behaviours and physical sensations are interconnected. Changes in our thoughts and behaviours can have an impact upon our mood. The essence of cognitive work is to examine underlying thoughts and beliefs behind the emotional disturbances and to generate alternative, more balanced thoughts. This in turn will generate more positive feelings. Cognitive therapists aim to examine and challenge your thoughts and your behaviour to help improve how you feel. To this effect, they are trained to use a number of tools including Daily Thought Records and Behavioural Experiments.

CBT is an evidence-based therapy treatment for conditions such as depression, stress, anxiety, trauma, eating issues, low self-esteem, anger management, relationship difficulties, work and career issues and phobias / obsessive compulsive disorder.
