Cognitive behavioural therapy or CBT combines cognitive (examine the things you think) and behavioural therapies (examine the things you do) and is particularly effective for treating stress, depression and anxiety disorders.
The theory behind CBT is that emotions are difficult to alter, so CBT focuses on those problem emotions by changing thoughts and behaviours that are contributing to them.
In short, CBT explores how we think about a situation and the feelings associated with it, and, because thoughts, feelings and behaviours are all linked, if you were to think upsetting thoughts, then you will feel upset, therefore you’re more inclined to do something that will increase the thoughts and strengthen the sabotaging emotions.
CBT techniques, or interventions, are a set of skills that can be used to help an individual to be aware of potentially troublesome thoughts and emotions… a vicious circle that can be broken by being aware of the link and changing it.
