Through cognitive behavioral therapy, you can change your brain and therefore, change your life.
In a therapeutic relationship in which we are ourselves without a social mask and fully present, our brains, the most amazing organs in the universe, are continually shaped. You don't need to succumb to anxiety, stress, and other negative emotions. False fears and wrong beliefs affect all of us, you are not alone. Thoughts are not facts. Once you have become proficient at identifying your automatic thoughts and emotions, you could live the life you love and love the life you live. When thinking about the most meaningful life for yourself, you could also consider your strengths and how to make use of your own great potential.

We experience difficulties in different ways. Often people seek therapy when they have been feeling feeling more anxious, stressed or frustrated more than usual, sometimes indicating a life transition such as relationship problems or difficulties at work. At other times clients get in touch when they noticed that something does not feel good but are still unsure of the reasons that may lie beneath and are keen to develop insight. We will build a shared understanding of current difficulties, and together will identify your hopes, goals and needsI draw from psychological evidence-based approaches to inform your unique treatment plan.

Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) Counsellors

How does cognitive behavioural therapy work?

Cognitive behavioural therapy works by exploring how your thoughts affect your emotions and experiences. CBT helps you identify distortions in your thinking. For example, you may tend to jump to the worst case scenario (catastrophizing) or think in extremes (all-or-nothing thinking). A therapist can teach you how to push back against those thoughts to ultimately change your feelings and behavior for the better. They can also provide coping skills to better deal with stressors and challenges.

When do I know to seek treatment with cognitive behavioural therapy?

It’s reasonable to consider cognitive behavioural therapy if you struggle to manage difficult emotions or behaviors to such an extent that you are not getting the most out of life on a day-to-day basis. If you want a shorter term, concrete, skills-based approach, CBT is a great option. (By contrast, other types of therapy may devote more time to exploring your past and its effects.) The decision to seek CBT also depends on the condition you’re treating; CBT is an effective treatment for anxiety, depression, trauma, and many other disorders.

How can I find a cognitive behavioural therapist for someone else?

To find a cognitive behavioural therapist for someone else, you may want to begin by discussing the person’s problem, researching cognitive behavioural therapy, and assessing whether the approach is the right fit. You could then reach out to a few cognitive behavioral therapists in this directory, explain the scenario, have a consultation with those available, and determine who could be a good match.

Why is CBT such a popular form of therapy?

CBT has become a popular form of therapy because it is effective and accessible. Robust research has demonstrated that CBT is an effective treatment for many mental health conditions. And CBT can be learned in relatively few sessions, which means that many people can engage in the process, afford it, and see results quickly. It involves learning concrete skills such as disputing unhelpful thoughts; these skills can also be taught and spread widely.
