What is Cognitive Behaviour Therapy?
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a specialised type of therapy which focuses on how our thoughts impact our feelings, and our behaviours. CBT is a type of therapy which research has shown to be effective when treating specific conditions such as anxiety, depression, phobias, and OCD amongst others. CBT is a structured and present-oriented type of therapy in which individual's establish goals to work on together with the mental health professional. An important aspect of CBT is that it helps clients in understanding what they want from their life and move forward towards those goals. Through CBT behaviour modification and changes in thought processes are learnt. This is done in order to create lasting improvements in an individual's daily functioning and enjoy a better sense of well-being.
