Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) looks at how your thoughts control your behaviour and feelings.
This approach works by adapting the way you think, feel and behave in situations and focuses on the solutions, rather than the issues created in your mind.
This is done by challenging any distorted thinking and unhelpful behaviour patterns. The theory allows for challenging client behaviour, utilising reality-testing and so much more.
CBT helps solve problems with how you feel and behave by setting goals and using systematic procedures.
Looking at the way we 'think' and 'behave' allows us to make connections between these two processes. Becoming aware of the links between your cognitions and behaviour, will influence your thoughts and allowing you to be in control of your feelings again.
Cognitive behaviour therapy uses techniques such as journal keeping, homework assignments and role-play. Contact me for a free telephone consultation to discuss therapy.
