What is CBT?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or CBT is a short-term, problem-focused form of behavioural treatment that helps people see the difference between beliefs, thoughts, and feelings, and free them from unhelpful patterns of behaviour. 

CBT is grounded in the belief that it is a person’s perception of events – rather than the events themselves – that determines how he or she will feel and act in response. 

CBT can help with:

  •  Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Persistent pain
  • Disordered eating
  • Anger management issues

Most people with clearly defined behavioural and emotional concerns tend to reap the benefits of CBT. If any of the above issues resonate with you, I encourage you to try CBT. 

With CBT, you’ll be able to adjust the thoughts that directly influence your emotions and behavior. This adjustment process is referred to as cognitive reconstructing, which happens through different CBT techniques (e.g., challenging beliefs, relaxation, exercises, and journalling).
