Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is based on the concept that thoughts, emotions, physical sensations and actions, behaviours and beliefs are all interconnected, and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap you in a vicious cycle.
CBT helps you deal with overwhelming problems in a more positive way by breaking them down into smaller parts. You’re shown how to change these negative patterns to improve the way you feel. Unlike some other talking treatments, CBT deals with your current problems, rather than focusing on issues from your past. It looks for practical ways and tools to improve your state of mind on a daily basis, leading to a healthier life and mindset.
Psychologists working at Turn The Corner are trained in a variety of evidence-based therapy types including CBT. To discuss a referral, please see your favourite Turn The Corner doctor in either Brunswick or Northcote.
