Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a very specific form of theraphy that can be used to treat many types of mental health problems. Research shows that it is effective for a wide range of disorders, from anxiety to depression to phobias.  

What Is CBT?

CBT works on the premise that our thoughts affect our behaviours and feelings, and that it is our thoughts that make us feel bad rather than our life circumstances or situations.

It can be used to treat a variety of conditions. Each session here in Angel's Cove lasts between 30 and 60 minutes.

How Does CBT Work?

Your CBT practitioner will have a general chat with your about your feelings and particular problems in the first session.

The CBT therapist will help you  break down your problems into smaller areas to figure out the areas of concern.

They may then write down your feelings, thoughts and behaviours so that you can clearly see your own patterns in these areas

  You will then be asked to consider how your thoughts and feelings could have an impact on your life.

Most CBT involves written work, so you will be asked to keep a diary to identify your common patterns, emotions and actions and how they influence your life and whether they are positive or negative.

What CBT
Can Do For You?
  • Can be as effective as medication in treating some mental health disorders.

  • Can be completed in a relatively short period of time compared to other talking therapies.

  • Focuses on re-training your thoughts and altering your behaviours, in order to make changes to how you feel.

  • The highly structured nature of CBT means it can be provided in different formats, including in groups and zoom appointments. 

  • Skills you learn in CBT are useful, practical and helpful strategies that can be incorporated into everyday life to help you cope better with future stresses and difficulties, even after the treatment has finished.
