Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) can help treat symptoms of anxiety, depression and other mental disorders by encouraging more positive thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a form of talk therapy that works by giving individuals the necessary tools to identify and challenge unhelpful thoughts and beliefs, called cognitive distortions. Challenging cognitive distortions can help people better manage their symptoms.

Counselling with CBT

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) has been demonstrated to be effective for a range of problems including depression, anxiety disorders, alcohol and drug use problems, marital problems, eating disorders, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and other mental health issues. Numerous research studies suggest that CBT leads to significant improvement in functioning and quality of life.

However, its effectiveness depends on the type of disorder and how long it's been present. In general, CBT works to address the symptoms by identifying the reasons behind them, alleviating any irrational beliefs causing them, and changing harmful thoughts that may be contributing to the development or worsening of the symptoms.
