Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

 Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a widely practiced and evidence-based psychotherapeutic approach that aims to help individuals identify and modify patterns of thought and behaviour that contribute to emotional distress. Developed on the premise that our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected, CBT focuses on the present moment and empowers individuals to challenge and reframe negative thought patterns. Therapists work collaboratively with clients to explore and understand their cognitive distortions, such as irrational beliefs or negative self-talk, and then introduce practical strategies to change these patterns. Additionally, CBT incorporates behavioural interventions to initiate positive feedback to improve mood. It encourages individuals to engage in activities that promote positive change and reinforce healthier thought patterns. The CBT approach to anxiety is to gradually face what make us anxious, while addressing the belief systems that can perpetuate avoidance and anxiety.
