Who should use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?

CBT is for people who are unhappy or anxious or depressed, and who want to build awareness and management of how they think and feel and behave. It is also for people who have particular situational problems or anxieties. And it is for people who have good coping skiills, but who want to make them even better. And it is for people who like personal and professional development in well being, and literally learning how to be happy. So… CBT is for everybody.

What is it? Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a psycho-educational model that teaches the engaged learner, (that’s you), how to build awareness of your ‘attributional style’ (this is a psychology term for how you explain the world to yourself) – and how to recognise in a very practical way how stress distorts our thoughts and beliefs, and how to un-distort them deliberately and consciously, over and over, until your new default thinking is more rational and realistic.

CBT has proven to outperform anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medication for people dealing with serious emotional health disorders – but you do not have to have depression or an anxiety disorder to use and benefit from CBT. Think of it this way, it is as simple and as essential as eating right or exercising – only it’s your beautiful brain and psychological health you are taking care of.

CBT is often called ‘the philosophy of how to be happy’ – and who doesn’t want that?

It is a very real and practical science and psychotherapy. It is not about positive thinking in a law of attraction type way – it is about reframing to realistic thinking, it is about developing great psychological health and well being through rational thinking skills, it is about developing great coping skills. It is a beautiful science. And science is magic that works. Try it and see if it’s right for you…

With CBT we learn the science of ‘thinking and feeling and behaviour'

It is not about taking away your emotions, it is about giving you the controls to understand and regulate your emotions so that you can be happier and cope well, recognising and accepting what you can control, and what you cannot control – and living in the present (truly living), no matter what the circumstances.

Clients might choose to use the sessions or workshops as an ‘introduction’ to the therapy, where you will go on to attend a traditional practitioner for further development – or you might use it as a premium ‘self help’ product, by taking it away and applying these new self management skills as a new philosophy of living over time, improving your work and personal life yourself by ‘becoming your own therapist’ (without the extended time and expense of years of traditional therapy).

NOTE: we do not recommend low intensity CBT or workshop training as a first resort or a replacement for professional mental health treatment by a GP or another recommended expert if you have very serious depression or emotional heath difficulties that may require diagnosis and/or medication support.
