Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)?
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) works by helping individuals identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviours that contribute to their anxiety and stress. It focuses on challenging and reframing unhelpful beliefs and replacing them with more realistic and adaptive ones, while also teaching coping skills and relaxation techniques to manage symptoms. Through a collaborative and structured approach, individuals learn to take an active role in managing their mental health and improve their overall well-being.
How Does Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Work?
CBT combines cognitive and behavioural techniques to address psychological issues. It involves identifying and examining negative thoughts, known as cognitive distortions, and challenging their accuracy and validity. Individuals learn to reframe these thoughts, replacing them with more positive and rational alternatives. Behavioural techniques focus on modifying unhelpful behaviours through goal-setting, problem-solving, and gradual exposure to feared situations. CBT also emphasizes the importance of homework assignments and practicing newly acquired skills outside of therapy sessions.
Who Can Benefit from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?
CBT has proven effective in treating various mental health conditions, including anxiety disorders, depression, phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and eating disorders. It is also helpful for individuals facing relationship issues, stress management difficulties, and low self-esteem. CBT can be adapted for different age groups, from children to adults, and can be used in individual, group, or online therapy formats.
