Cognitive Behaviour Therapy

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is an evidence based therapy that challenges thoughts and behaviours when they impact negatively on general well-being.
A psychosocial intervention which determines how we interpret ourselves, the world and others. This type of intervention can help identify unhelpful thinking patterns which may lead us to behave in a negative way. Looking at individual elements of a situation, our thoughts, feelings, body sensations and how we act we can explore and determine alternative and more helpful ways of responding.

CBT sessions may consist of a number of activities including:

  • Sheetwork, diaries, logs and homework to complete between sessions
  • Looks at habit formation
  • Gentle challenging of thoughts and behaviours
  • Behavioural experiments in a stepped approach
