Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
CBT, one of the most researched and empirically-validated forms of therapy, owes its popularity to its common sense and clear principles. CBT takes a structured approach to exploring the connection between your thoughts- feelings- and behaviours. It has been proven to be effective in increasing self-awareness and helping people cope with a variety of psychological issues, like depression, anxiety and many of the tangles we find ourselves in in relationships.
Cognitive strategies aim to disrupt the automatic, self-critical way we tend to talk to ourselves, whereas behavioural strategies strive to bring more intentional action to habitual patterns that may not be working well (or even reinforcing negative beliefs!)
While CBT has been the gold standard approach for decades, it does have its limitations. Many of my clients have found CBT to be very helpful in better understanding themselves and their situations, some, especially those who have experienced trauma, require a broader approach to shift their affect or physiological responses. But don't worry, I've got you covered there too.
Together we will look at how changing your mindset and your habits can have a positive impact on your life.
