Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or CBT is an approach that can guide therapy. It tends to be a short-term, problem-focused approach, that for example helps people see the difference between beliefs, thoughts, and feelings, and in turn free them from unhelpful patterns of behaviour.
CBT is grounded in the belief that it is a person’s perception of events – rather than the events themselves – that determines how he or she will feel and act in response.
CBT can help with:
- Past trauma
- And other issues.
If any of the above issues resonate with you, I encourage you to try cognitive behavioural therapy.
With CBT, you’ll be able to examine and question the thoughts that directly influence your emotions and behavior. This process is referred to as cognitive reconstructing, which happens through different CBT techniques.
Cognitive behavioral therapy is much more than sitting and talking about whatever comes to mind during a session. Sessions guided by CBT tend to be fairly structured to ensure that the therapist and the client are focused on the different goals of each session, which in turn helps to ensure that each and every session is productive.
