Qualified Psychotherapist: Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, Phobias, Couples Therapy counselling and psychotherapy
CBT is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on how thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes affect feelings and behaviors.
The American Psychological Association explains that CBT relies on several beliefs:
The central theory is that problems arise from events and the meanings that people assign to them. Unhelpful thoughts can make it difficult for a person to function confidently in various situations.
CBT can help a person make positive changes to how they feel and act. It can also equip people with coping strategies that help them deal with challenges.
Research shows that CBT can support people with depression, panic disorder, and various other health conditions. There is also growing evidence that it can help relieve chronic pain.
