Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
CBT is based on the premise that our thoughts, emotions, physiology and behaviours are all inter-connected. Within CBT, we work to understand how unhelpful thinking patterns may contribute to an individual’s problems and leave them feeling stuck, depressed, anxious and/or reliant on maladaptive coping behaviours, such as substance abuse, disordered eating, aggression, etc.
CBT is a well-researched, goal-oriented approach to treating many psychological conditions, such as depression, generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, phobias, chronic pain, and eating disorders, to name a few. Once skills are taught in CBT they can be broadly applied within a person’s life to establish and maintain improved wellness.
