Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an effective way of correcting problematic behaviour and learning to be the best you can be.
CBT can help you to change how you think “Cognitive” and what you do “Behaviour”. These changes can help you to feel better. Unlike some of the other talking treatments, it focuses on the “here and now” problems and difficulties. Instead of focussing on the causes of your distress or symptoms in the past, it looks for ways to improve your state of mind now.
It has been found to be helpful with overcoming issues with:
- Agoraphobia and other phobias
- Social phobia
- Obsessive compulsive disorder
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
How does it work?
CBT can help you to make sense of overwhelming problems by breaking them down into smaller parts. This makes it easier to see how they are connected and how they affect you. These parts are:
A Situation – a problem, event or difficult scenarios
From this can follow:
- Physical feelings
Each of these areas can affect the others. How you think about a problem can affect how you feel physically and emotionally. It can also alter what you do about it.
