CBT- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
CBT is thinking about your thoughts and recognizing that what we think (perception) changes how we feel (emotion) and that then changes how we act (behavior). All is mind. How we think is how we feel and all of this interacts together.
Our thoughts can cause us to feel distressed and this can create problems. Sometimes due to past experiences, trauma, set behaviour we repeatedly choose to observe and judge the world and others around us negatively as a reaction to certain situations or triggers that subconsciously remind us of past hurts or fears. Quite often we perceive wrongly and those thoughts change our emotions and we feel sad. Society and media has also conditioned us to see situations and actions negatively more so than positively.
Life is to be enjoyed. CBT with practice can bring the joy and balance back into your every day life.
CBT normally lasts 8 to 16 sessions. We work together so that your thoughts help you to feel genuine positive emotions which then create positive outcomes. Each journey is unique and different and you may wish less or more sessions. You can decide what feels right for you.
Thoughts are the vocabulary of the mind. Feelings are the vocabulary of the body. The body then creates chemicals based on our different emotions. These chemicals can then become healing or illness in our bodies. A healthy mind truly is a healthy body.
Here are the three mental modes created subconsciously through our thoughts. Therapy helps restore you to a mode of balance and the ability to maintain it.
