Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

What Is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a therapeutic approach that operates on the premise that our thoughts influence our feelings and behaviours, shaping our overall well-being. This evidence-based practice empowers individuals to identify and challenge negative thought patterns, fostering positive behavioural changes. 

CBT equips individuals with practical tools to navigate and overcome various challenges. By instilling effective coping mechanisms, CBT not only addresses current concerns but also empowers individuals with lifelong skills for managing future stressors.
