Making The Difference

23rd April 2024 


Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a form of therapy which works by challenging our automatic negative thoughts. These thoughts can often be present without our conscious awareness and can become a habitual mode of thinking.

Our negative thoughts can exacerbate our feelings of guilt, worthlessness, self blame, shame, depression, anxiety and stress.

CBT will work by challenging the validity of these negative self perceptions and thoughts. By so doing automatic negative thought processes can be replaced with positive affirmations.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy works by enabling one to gain self insight, to control obsessional negative thoughts and to begin to feel in control and empowered.

In tandem with Counselling sessions the source of these negative thoughts may be identified, helping the client to gain further insight and understanding.
