Cognitive behavioural therapy is regarded as one of the most influential models in therapy today.
The technique combines cognitive science, behavioural theories and philosophy.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy investigates how the mind’s cognitive abilities can aid a persons psychological state who is suffering from automatic, negative thoughts and avoidant behaviours. Cognitive therapy is more focused on the present, more time-limited, and more problem-solving oriented.
Much of what the patient does is solve their current problems and in addition, our patients will learn specific skills that they can take with them and implement for the rest of their lives. These important skills involve identifying certain distorted thinking, modifying their beliefs, relating to others in different ways, and changing their behaviour.
