Focusing on how you think about the things going on in your life (your thoughts, images, beliefs and attitudes, your past experiences and how these things relate to your current problems) our work then looks at ways you can change negative patterns of thinking or behaviour and process them in a more constructive way.
Your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are interconnected, often trapping you in a negative spiral. CBT helps you stop these negative cycles, breaking down factors that are making you feel depressed or anxious so that they become more manageable. It shows you how to change these negative patterns to improve the way you think and feel.
During our therapy sessions we work together toward finding strategies that will achieve your specific goals. I will help you learn to observe your thoughts and beliefs and then to identify and understand their link to your thoughts, feelings and behaviour.
