Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Sometimes our thinking is not entirely in line with actual events. We might think negatively about current situations because of bad things that have happened to us in the past.

About CBT

CBT assumes there is an interaction between negative thoughts, difficult emotions, unhelpful behavior and the environment.

For example...

if I think that someone has tried to deliberately offend me, this might cause me to feel emotionally angry, anxious or sad. I may become overwhelmed by these feelings.

This might affect my behavior in that I write an angry email, confront that person or become withdrawn and quiet. This behavior may lead to negative consequences in my environment – such as falling out with people, or getting into trouble at work. These negative consequences further feed into my negative thoughts and feelings.

In CBT, you work with a therapist to identify and understand how these patterns uniquely affect you. Unhelpful strategies are identified and replaced with helpful strategies. You will learn how to change your response to negative thoughts and feelings.

Flexible approach

CBT is a flexible approach that is used to treat numerous problems: depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, childhood abuse, low self esteem, anger, pain, addiction, relationship problems, jealousy, confidence issues and a range of other difficulties.

Russell Wharton is a BABCP accredited CBT practitioner. BABCP accreditation ensures that your CBT therapist has undergone rigorous training and continues to maintain high standards of practice.
