Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based counselling approach that provides clients with concrete and specific strategies to changing thoughts and mood. The foundation of CBT is the simple fact that emotions do not respond to commands, like “relax” or “stop crying”. With this approach, clients are able to change thoughts and behaviours to influence changes in emotion.
Changing your Behaviours and Thoughts
A comprehensive approach to CBT is used at Sandstone Counselling Centre in which a self-care plan is designed around your individual needs and personality. Together with your counsellor, we bring awareness to troublesome cognitions (thoughts) and unhelpful behavoiurs (what you do).
CBT Counselling to Facilitate Desired Changes in Your Life
You and your counsellor find the solutions, both in your own successes as well as through discovering innovative techniques and approaches to change.
