Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a well-established therapeutic approach that explores the relationship between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It recognizes the power of thoughts to shape our emotions and actions. By identifying and reshaping unhelpful thought patterns, CBT strives to boost emotional well-being and foster adaptive behaviors.

CBT Essentials:

  1. Thoughts are Key: CBT focuses on how thoughts influence emotions and actions. Identifying and changing negative thought patterns is the core of the process.
