Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is brief and time-limited. During the sessions you will learn how to become your own therapist. You will be given the tools to help you become your own person. To take charge of your life. To understand why you, and only you, have brought yourself to this place at this point in time. To accept that everyone is responsible for their own behaviour. To challenge your thoughts and beliefs and see how they shape your views and ultimately your experiences of the world as you perceive it to be. To quote Epictetus, “Men are not moved by things, but by the views which they take of them.”
In CBT I like to switch the phrase “I’ll believe it when I see it” to “I’ll see it when I believe it”. This shift in perception raises our awareness. It is only when we have elevated a problem into our awareness and begin to see it in a different light that we can do something about it. We begin to realise and accept that we have choices. We can do something about the problem or do nothing. The choice is our’s to take. The decision is ours to make.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy has proven worldwide to be effective in the treatment of many psychological disorders.
