Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is an evidenced based treatment which focuses on changing unhelpful thoughts and behaviours. It is a combination of two therapies, cognitive therapy and behaviour therapy. Often, an individual will experience automatic thoughts and these thoughts may negatively affect a person’s quality of life. CBT aims to help one identify and challenge these unhelpful thoughts and learn practical skills that will improve their mood and also help them to expunge negative self-beliefs that impedes them from reaching their goals or living the life they want.
CBT is efficacious on a wide range of psychological difficulties including: depression, anxiety, low-esteem, irrational fears, eating disorder, addictive behaviours, insomnia, managing anger, emotional and behavioural problems in children or teenagers and obsessive-compulsive disorder and many more.
