Cognitive Behavioural Therapy – it is evidence-based for a reason!
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a broad treatment approach in psychotherapy and counselling that focuses on your perceptions, emotions, and thought process regarding yourself in the world. The CBT model of treatment includes analyzing the interactions between thoughts, feelings, emotions and behaviours.
CBT in counselling emphasizes an active participation between the therapist and client, that involves understanding and challenging those negative thoughts that keep getting you stuck. It is often understood as a transdiagnostic treatment approach – that means, it can target many mental health concerns.
CBT has an extensive evidence base, and has been proven effective when applied to many psychological concerns.
