COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY (CBT) 

CBT aims to help you change the way you think (cognitive) and what you do (behaviour). Rather than looking at past causes, this type of counselling focuses on current problems and practical solutions to help you feel better now. CBT engages clients to think about situations that affect the way we feel and behave. To be successful, the session requires the client to examine thoughts and reflect on an alternative outcome to different scenarios. Over time, and with practice clients begin to actively consider these alternative outcomes in real-life situations. 

CBT is a short-term, goal-oriented psychotherapy treatment that takes a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving through changing patterns of thinking or behaviours. Counselling helps you identify and challenge any negative thinking so you can deal with situations better and behave in a more positive way. CBT can be helpful for:

  • Depression

  • Anxiety Stress

  • Phobias

  • Obsessions

  • Eating disorders

  • Anger management 

  • Fatigue 

  • Mood swings
