Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an action-oriented form of psychotherapy. It looks at how our attitudes, thinking, beliefs, and behaviours were created and how they affect our emotions, behaviours, lives and happiness and shows how changing them can help us get better; feel better and achieve more. The philosophies and ideas are derived from ancient and modern philosophers, psychology, common sense and humanity.
CBT is used extensively by the NHS and recommended by NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence), for many emotional and psychological problems and is supported by extensive research.
CBT emphasizes that we all have a capacity for creating, and controlling and changing our emotional states. It demonstrates how currently held attitudes, painful emotions, and unhelpful behaviours that can sabotage our goals and wellbeing. Using proven techniques for problem solving, and focusing on and changing currently held unhealthy beliefs, CBT Therapy teaches people how to overcome past, present and future problems and offers proven techniques for solving your problems.
Moya uses techniques from both Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy and has worked successfully with clients using both psychotherapeutic approaches, helping patients understand the thoughts and feelings that influence behaviours.
CBT is generally short-term and focused on helping clients deal with a very specific problem. During the course of treatment, people learn how to identify and change destructive or disturbing thought patterns that have a negative influence on behaviour. CBT is commonly used to treat a wide range of disorders and Moya has a compassionate collaborative approach and has successfully treated a wide range of problems including:
- Eating Disorders
- Self Esteem Issues
Sessions are generally 1 hour long and clients can experience a great improvement in as little as 6 sessions.
