Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is effective for many mental health issues supported by in depth clinical research, and is well received by many individuals. Psychological problems can negatively affect the quality of life for individuals as well as their families.
CBT is an effective intervention for individuals suffering from anxiety disorders, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and bipolar disorder. It is also often helpful for sleep difficulties, physical symptoms without a medical diagnosis and anger management.

CBT is structured and tends to focus on current difficulties rather than explore the historical origins of them. It also relies on a collaborative therapeutic relationship between the therapist and client.
CBT typically involves:
  • Helping clients in treatment to establish daily activities to provide structure and direction in graduated steps
  • Encouraging clients to identify and challenge negative thoughts and assumptions characteristic of their symptoms and to consider evidence for more realistic views of their experience
  • Helping clients shift focus away from physical symptoms and negative mood associated with depression and/or anxiety
  • Helping clients return to a routine of pleasurable and productive activities, on a scheduled basis
