Discover Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapeutic approach that focuses on understanding and changing negative thoughts and behaviors to improve mental well-being.

If you’re looking for support for your mental health, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) might be a helpful option. CBT focuses on understanding how our thoughts, emotions, and behaviours are connected, aiming to improve our well-being. CBT is used to treat many common mental disorders, such as generalised anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression, and phobias.

CBT helps us identify negative thought patterns that contribute to our distress and replace them with more positive and realistic thoughts. By doing this, we can change how we feel and behave, leading to better mental health outcomes.

One important thing to note is that there is another therapy called Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), which shares some similarities with CBT but has a stronger emphasis on accepting ourselves and managing intense emotions. Both therapies can be effective, so it’s worth discussing with a mental health professional which approach might be best for you.

CBT can be conducted through individual or group sessions, and it often involves learning practical skills to cope with challenges, manage stress, and improve relationships. The therapist works collaboratively with you, providing guidance and support throughout the process.

Remember, seeking professional help is crucial when considering CBT or any other therapy. At Personal Psychology we are here to help you on your own personal journey.
