Do you sometimes feel trapped in your thinking? Do you struggle with life decisions, body image, relationships problems, family conflict, or career stress? Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) might be what you need to tackle your current struggles.

What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based treatment, which means that it has been proven to be effective more often than most other types of therapy. CBT is based on the idea that thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are all interconnected, and that by changing negative or distorted thinking patterns, an individual can improve their feelings and behaviors.

CBT can be effective in treating a wide range of issues and concerns, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety disorders (e.g., generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and phobias)
  • Eating disorders
  • Sleep problems
  • Anger management problems

CBT can also be helpful for individuals who are struggling with relationship problems, stress management, or coping with medical conditions or chronic pain.

Benefits of CBT

There are many potential benefits to CBT, including:

  • Improved ability to manage and regulate emotions
  • Increased self-awareness and self-understanding
  • Enhanced problem-solving and coping skills
  • Greater feelings of control and personal autonomy
  • Improved relationships with others
  • Increased self-esteem and self-confidence

CBT can also help individuals to develop a more positive and realistic outlook on life, and to learn new ways of thinking and behaving that can lead to improved mental and emotional well-being.

Overall, the goal of CBT is to help individuals make positive and lasting changes in their lives that can lead to greater fulfillment.

Psychological Therapy

What should you know about CBT prior to treatment?

  • CBT is action-oriented and involves practicing techniques outside of the sessions.
  • CBT therapists are not cheerleaders for positive thinking but the aim is to shift negative thoughts into healthy and adaptive ones.
  • CBT therapists are active in the sessions, provide direction, offer suggestions and teach skills

It is important to remember that it is necessary to practice the skills and techniques outside of the sessions in order to make progress.

Additionally, one should expect to experience challenging moments throughout the course of treatment as it is normal for change to be uncomfortable.
