Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a form of brief psychotherapy that is based on the premise that our thoughts affect the way we feel and behave. The therapist helps the client to identify 'faulty thinking' patterns and practice replacing them with more helpful ways of thinking.

CBT requires a collaborative working relationship between client and therapist. The therapist seeks to understand what the client wants out of life and then sets an agenda for each session in which the client is taught how to think and behave in ways to achieve his/her goals.

CBT is a method that has proven to be very helpful in cases of depression, anxiety and panic disorder.
