Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Mindfulness - how it can help


Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is a type of psychotherapy that looks at your behaviour and what you think about yourself, other people and the world in general. It helps you identifying unhelphul attitudes and what meaning you give to different situations that occur in your daily life. CBT mostly focuses on looking for ways to improve your mental wellbeing now.

CBT can help you to break vicious cycles of negative thinking, feelings and behaviour. When you see the parts of the vicious cycle clearly, you can change them - and therefore change the way you feel. Weekly home work is part of the therapeutic process of CBT, starting to become mindful of what thoughts, feelings and physical sensations you may have around specific issues CBT address your issues in the here and now, and although exploring the client's personal past may be helpful, the main focus is in finding strategies of dealing with negative thoughts and behaviours that would limit a client's life, for example this method can be useful in addressing phobias, anxiety, shyness, depression, obsessional traits, to name a few.

CBT sessions can take place face-to-face or over the telephone or Skype. Please use the contact us form to enquire.
