The Talking Therapy. It is a type of psychotherapy that looks at: * How you think about yourself, the world and other people * How what you do affects your feelings and thoughts. If Hypnotherapy is not for you, then this is another tool to tackle your problems. CBT aims to solve problems concerning dysfunctional emotions, behaviors and cognitions through a goal-oriented, systematic procedure in the present.
CBT is a “Here and Now” approach to understanding and overcoming psychological problems. By making links between what we do, think and feel, CBT can help us make changes in the way we think (“Cognitive”) and the way we act (“Behaviour)”. Making changes in what we think will affect what you do and feel, and changing what we do, affects the way we think and feel. Making these changes then can help us feel better. Whilst it is is helpful to discuss the past and understand how our pasts have influenced our lives and how problems have arisen, CBT mostly focuses on looking for ways to improve your mental wellbeing now.
CBT says that it’s not the event which causes our emotions, but how we interpret that event – what we think or what meaning we give that event or situation.
