How CBT Works

The CBT approach centres on the idea that there is a direct link between the way we think and the way we feel and behave. CBT challenges our perceptions of the world and aims to change what may be flawed or unhelpful thought patterns that give rise to negative emotions and lead to unhealthy behaviour.

CBT works on the basis that it is not difficult situations and events that are the cause of emotional distress but the thoughts and evaluations of them that our mind creates. While we may not always have control over our circumstances, we can influence how we perceive and respond to them.

CBT also often incorporates behavioural techniques and problem-solving strategies to empower individuals to effectively manage their emotions and challenges. It’s a practical and time-limited therapy that equips individuals with the tools they need for continued personal growth and healing.
