Executive Coaching with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioural Training (CBT) for executives is a targeted coaching approach that helps high-level professionals identify and change unproductive patterns of thinking and behaviour that may hinder their performance or leadership effectiveness. By fostering self-awareness and teaching practical self-management strategies to challenge and reframe attributional styles and attitudes, CBT equips executives with the skills to manage stress, enhance decision-making, and design emotionally intelligent approaches to issues, to cultivate healthier work habits, ultimately promoting greater professional success and well-being.

What is Executive Coaching with CBT?

The Executive Coaching CBT sessions are designed to assist leaders in honing their skills, overcoming challenges, and achieving peak performance. Whether you are a seasoned executive looking to enhance your leadership abilities or a rising star aiming to navigate the complexities of the business world, CBT skills will benefit and guide you.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT): CBT is a widely recognised psycho-educational approach that focuses on identifying and modifying thinking styles and behaviours. In the context of executive coaching, CBT provides powerful tools to manage stress, enhance decision-making, and improve overall performance and mental well-being.

How Does it Work?

An executive Cognitive Behavioural Training (CBT) coach can assist individuals in various aspects of their professional and personal development. Sessions can be one-to-one by the hour, or in intensive 2 hour or 4 hour session plans – with homework and goals – organically building a toolbox specifically for you. Sessions can take place at my practice in 30 Wicklow Street Dublin 2 – or in your office. Sessions can be targeted for a specific situational issue – or can be general to discuss your overall experience and performance, and desired outcomes.
