Cognitive Behavioural Therapy teaches you a set of skills that enables you to be more aware of your thoughts and how they can affect your emotions. Once this is understood better, we aim to modify your underlying unhelpful thought processes, thereby changing your negative emotions and behaviours. Unlike some other forms of therapy, CBT deals with your current problems, rather than looking at issues that may have evolved from your past. CBT looks for practical ways to improve your state of mind on a daily basis, helping you to manage your moods and emotions in a more productive way. CBT is avoided by some due to it’s perceived short-term nature and it’s focus on the here-and-now, however, if this style of counselling is suitable to you it can be very effective.
