What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?
CBT has been proved to be helpful in treating a wide range of emotional disorders. It aims to help through focusing on the effects that thinking can have on feelings and mood. The therapist and client work together in changing ways of thinking and acting, to help the way the person feels.
What happens in therapy sessions?
CBT is a way of talking about events, situations, people and the way we think about or perceive them. It also examines how actions affect thoughts and feelings. It may help to break down problems into smaller parts to become aware of the effect on daily life.
