COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY: “WHAT IS IT?”
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or CBT, as it is most commonly known, is a therapy that focuses on the particular ways in which individuals think, behave and act, in an attempt to deal successfully with their behavioural, emotional and social problems and issues.
CBT focuses upon addressing, challenging and changing a person’s emotional issues. It can also focus on how an individual thinks about himself, the world around him and other people.
CBT can help change the thought process – ‘cognitive’ and what is done – ‘behaviour’. These changes can help an individual to feel better and unlike many of the other talking treatments, CBT focuses on the current ‘here and now’ of problems and issues. Instead of focusing on the causes and reasons for unhappiness or symptoms in the past, it looks for ways to improve the current state of mind.
Whilst it is termed a therapy, it is basically a series of differing approaches to emotional management that continues to grow and change as professional CBT practitioners learn more about its applications, successes and failures. It is a recognised form of psychology that is successful at many different levels.
As I specialise in the field of CBT this is the only form of therapy I use when consulting with my clients and they find it highly effective.
