Professional and Confidential Counselling

 

What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)?

CBT is a psychological treatment based on scientific principles which help the client understand their problems and how these affect their thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

CBT is a combination of cognitive therapy which examines negative thinking, attitudes and beliefs and behavioural therapy which focuses on the behaviour governed by thoughts and feelings.

The aim of the therapy is to enable clients to generate solutions to problems based on skills learned in therapy which are more effective than their present coping strategies. CBT has been shown to be at least as effective as anti-depressant medication, but far superior to medication in the prevention of relapse and recurrence of illness.

What problems can CBT help with?

Research on CBT has been extensive and is an effective form of counselling in many areas such as:

• Depression
• Anxiety and Panic Attacks
• Anger/Stress Management
• Phobias
• Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
• Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
• Eating problems
• Relationship, Family and Marital Issues
• Drug/Alcohol Problems
• Life Coaching

CBT can help you:

• Change negative thinking patterns which keep you from fulfilling your    goals in life.
• Challenge beliefs about yourself and your abilities so you achieve a more    realistic view of your situation.
• Develop better self-esteem and confidence.
• Raise self-awareness and gain a clearer sense of direction.
• Become more in control of your life rather than feeling powerless to    change.
• Learn better social, interpersonal and problem-solving skills.
