Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on changing negative thinking patterns and behaviours in order to help people cope with various mental disorders.

CBT is based on the idea that our thoughts can greatly influence our feelings and behaviours. In CBT, individuals are taught to recognize and challenge their unhelpful thoughts and replace them with more helpful ones. This helps them to better manage their mental health. For example, if an individual struggles with anxiety they may be taught to recognize and refute worries that they cannot cope or seek out tasks that are difficult for them
