Behavioural therapies are based on the way you think (cognitive) and/or the way you behave.
These therapies recognise that it is possible to change, or recondition, our thoughts or behaviour to overcome specific problems.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) combines cognitive and behavioural therapies. The approach focuses on thoughts, emotions, physical feelings and actions, and teaches clients how each one can have an effect on the other.
CBT is useful for dealing with a number of issues, including depression, anxiety and phobias.
Cognitive therapy deals with thoughts and perceptions, and how these can affect feelings and behaviour.
By reassessing negative thoughts an individual can learn more flexible, positive ways of thinking, which can ultimately affect their feelings and behaviour towards those thoughts.
If you feel that this type of therapy is right for you, or any of the other approaches I use (see my other blog posts), do get in touch to set up an initial session.
