Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
The mind is a powerful thing, so changing the way you think and behave can often be challenging. It isn’t easy changing the way you think, be it kicking an old habit or changing the way you see yourself. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can be used to treat depression and anxiety as well as alter your behaviour and help boost your self-image. Cognitive behaviour therapy uses knowledge of the way your mind behaves to help you understand how your negative patterns of thought can influence your actions and self-image.
Our thoughts, feelings, and behaviours influence one another in a constant replay. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy will use this to change the negative downward spiral we can so easily be caught up in, and teach you to reverse the cycle to bring about the thoughts, feelings and behaviours you desire.
While this therapy cannot eliminate your problems entirely, it can help you manage them in a more positive way. It can help you cope emotionally and eventually, lower your stress levels.
