Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

It helps you to focus on the connections between how you think, how you feel and how you behave. CBT targets problems in the here and now with much less therapeutic time devoted to experiences in early life. It is a form of therapy that addresses problems in a direct and targeted way.

The cognitive behavioural therapist looks at patterns of thinking and behaviour and how these patterns are reinforced and maintained by you within your environment. A functional analysis of thinking and behaviour is performed, often using log sheets and graphs to better understand your thought and behaviour patterns in the context of daily routines.

Treatment is generally short term and lasts between 6 to 20 sessions.
