What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?

CBT is a structured, goal-oriented form of psychotherapy that focuses on the relationship between thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. By identifying and challenging negative thought patterns, CBT helps you develop healthier thinking and behaviour patterns, leading to lasting change and improved mental well-being.

How CBT Can Help You

Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, stress, or other mental health concerns, CBT can provide you with the tools to:

  • Identify and Challenge Negative Thoughts: Learn to recognize and reframe harmful thoughts that contribute to your distress.
  • Develop Healthy Coping Mechanisms: Build practical skills to manage stress and emotional difficulties more effectively.
  • Improve Emotional Regulation: Gain better control over your emotions and reactions to challenging situations.
  • Enhance Problem-Solving Skills: Approach life’s challenges with confidence and resilience.
  • Boost Self-Esteem and Confidence: Cultivate a positive self-image and greater self-worth.


What a CBT Session Might Look Like

In a typical CBT session, you’ll work collaboratively with your therapist to identify specific problems and set goals. The session often begins with a review of your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours related to recent experiences. Together, you’ll explore negative thought patterns and challenge their validity. Your therapist will guide you through practical exercises and provide tools to reframe these thoughts. Sessions may also include homework assignments, such as keeping a thought diary or practising new skills, to reinforce what you’ve learned and help you apply these strategies in your daily life.
