Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is based on three words: thoughts, emotions and behaviour. It is an approach which explores how the thoughts, attitudes and beliefs you hold influence the way you feel and behave. It is a combination of cognitive therapy (what you think) and behaviour therapy (what you do). Our use of CBT helps you explore why you do what you don’t want to do, e.g. be afraid, and how to overcome the associated thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

It is based on how we start to interpret life’s experiences in a negative way, until those negative thoughts become automatic, e.g. if you were bullied at school you may grow up thinking you are not a worthy person. CBT helps break these patterns of thoughts and prevents them becoming a vicious cycle. Our programme links CBT with IIT to prevent past experiences and future worries contaminating (poisoning) your daily life in the present.
