Cognitive behavioural therapy offers a powerful method for helping clients change their thinking and behaviour to enable them to overcome their difficulties.
A person may interpret their life with a negative bias. The goal of CBT is to challenge and evaluate these negative thoughts and patterns and help the client think in more adaptive ways thus changing their perception of events and situations.
Guidance is offered for specific emotional problems such as anxiety, depression, anger, shame and guilt.
The use of work sheets and other exercises between appointments enables the client to focus much closer on particular areas of difficulty.
The client will find the skills learned during the sessions helpful for coping independently in the future.
