Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
If you are looking for private CBT therapy Harley Clinical Psychology can
help. We are trained in this approach and can help you with the problems you are experiencing with this effective approach.
What Is CBT Therapy?
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or CBT is a time-limited, structured treatment approach that research has shown to be effective in treating a wide range of difficulties. CBT focuses on taking a closer look at your thoughts, feelings, body sensations and what you do (your behaviour) in certain situations. Based on the premise that what we think and do affects the way we feel; thus our thoughts, feelings and behaviours are interconnected and influence each other. When we are experiencing difficulties such as anxiety or low mood, we can often fall into particular types of problematic thinking and responding that can make us feel worse.
What CBT Involves
During CBT your psychologist will help you identify what sort of unhelpful 'thinking & doing patterns you are in and then helps you change these patterns through a variety of techniques. In this way, CBT is an active therapy and you will work with your psychologist each week to identify what skills to practice between the sessions.
How CBT Helps
CBT focuses on difficulties in the here and now rather than resolving past issues from your
childhood. However, your psychologist will spend some time with you collaboratively developing
an understanding of your difficulties, and that may involve discussing your childhood to get a sense of how unhelpful patterns may have developed.
