Cognitive Behavioral Therapy


CBT is an approach that combines both cognitive and behavioural techniques to bring about change. It is based on the view that stressful states like anxiety and depression, are exaggerated and prolonged by a biased way of thinking about the self, others and about the world. Thoughts can become distorted and unhelpful. This worsens how a person feels. They may then behave in a way that maintains their distress. The approach usually focuses on difficulties in the here and now. Once a therapeutic alliance has been formed, clients and therapists work together to identify and understand how their thoughts affect their feelings and behaviors. Therapy involves challenging maladaptive thoughts and beliefs using rational logic and evidence and trying new more functional behaviors to bring about change.
