CBT is an action-oriented form of psychotherapy that assumes that unproductive, or unhelpful, thinking patterns cause unproductive behaviour and undesired negative emotions.
CBT is a collaborative process where client and therapist work together to help clients achieve their therapeutic goals. The therapeutic relationship is a special one where you are offered a safe place to explore your internal landscape and help you overcome adversity.
CBT focuses on changing a person’s thoughts and actions. In turn, this changes their feelings and behaviours. CBT follows the structure of assessment, case formulation and treatment plan. This involves looking at how situations from the past impact our day-to-day issues. There are 6 phases in CBT:
3. Skills Acquisition
4. Skills consolidation
