Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, often abbreviated to CBT, sees a connection
between thoughts, feelings and behaviours. It understands that the way
people think about things leads to how they feel about them and how they behave.
Thinking patterns can become distorted, for many reasons, and a negative pattern of
thoughts often leads to distress (for example, always thinking the worst).
CBT aims to make thinking more flexible by learning skills to manage unhelpful thoughts
and challenge them.
Therefore, it may be useful for us in our work together to explore your thought patterns.
Learning to recognise and challenge unhelpful thoughts can lead to a more helpful thinking
pattern which may reduce distressing feelings and allow you more control over behaviours.
