• Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

    CBT stands for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.  It is based on the idea that what we think affects how we behave. Sometimes our thinking isn't helpful to us or causes us distress.

    • You make a negative interpretation even though there are no definite facts to support your conclusion, for example you say hello to your boss who does not reply.  You conclude that he hates you or you've done something wrong. It might have been that he didn't hear you or he's having a bad day for other reasons
    •  You assume that your negative emotions necessarily reflect the way things really are, "I feel it, so it must be true"
    • Instead of describing a mistake you have made, you attach a negative label to yourself, "I'm such a loser."  Or when someone else's behaviour rubs you up the wrong way you attach a label to them "He's such a jerk."

    CBT will help you to think more rationally and therefore feel and behave in ways that are more useful.
