Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that helps you to look at your thoughts, beliefs and attitudes, which in turn affect your emotions and behaviours. CBT is about helping you catch your thoughts and challenge them, learning coping skills as you go.
Negative thinking cycles can start as early as childhood and overtime you will start to believe these thoughts, creating negative automatic thought patterns.
If your negative thoughts are left unchallenged, you will start to have negative feelings and behaviours.
In CBT, we will work together to identify and challenge any negative thinking patterns, which may be causing you difficulties. You will learn coping strategies that you can use in the future, allowing you to change your behaviours and live a more fulfilled life.
