CBT – Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

49402428 - cognitive behavioral therapy

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a structured, short-term, present-oriented psychotherapy for depression and other mood disorders, directed toward solving current problems and modifying dysfunctional (inaccurate and/or unhelpful) thinking and behavior.

 

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a different kind of ‘talking therapy’ that aims to solve current problems that you may be experiencing. By taking what may seem insurmountable tasks and teaching how to apply a pragmatic and objective view point to these issues, CBT gradually changes a persons outlook to the everyday challenges they go through.

 

With CBT, your Working Minds therapist acknowledges that there may be behaviours that you cannot control through rational thought. Rather, these maladaptive thoughts emerged as a result of prior conditioning from the environment and other external and/or internal stimuli.

 

CBT has been known to be equally, if not more effective than anti-depressants, and is prescribed for multiple mental health conditions, such as:

  • Moderate Depression and Anxiety
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Phobias
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Eating disorders such as Anorexia and Bulimia
  • Addiction

Our approach

A typical one to one CBT session starts with discussing what it is you would like to talk about that day, or, what are the issues that have built up and now need to be addressed. With a therapist’s help you will dismantle each problem into small, more manageable chunks, which are more easily analysed and worked on. Each session usually lasts an hour, and the courses usually consists of around 6 to 12 sessions.

Over the course of the sessions I have had with Simon I have gone from someone who probably would not have been able to carry on for much longer the way that I was, to someone that is now looking forward to working and moving on with my life...
