What is CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy)?


CBT  (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) is one of the most popular and respected forms of therapy practised in the Canada, probably because it is evidence-based and can produce results relatively quickly.  The central idea of  CBT is that our emotions are connected to our thoughts and behaviours. By becoming aware of your thoughts, substituting realistic thoughts for unrealistic ones, and developing new behaviours, you can overcome emotional difficulties such as depression, anxiety as well as low self-esteem and relationship issues


How can CBT help me?


If you have any emotional difficulty, CBT provides a structured approach to help. CBT is particularly suited to deal with depression, anxiety, anger-management, low self-esteem, relationship issues and stress management.  It aims not only to relieve symptoms, but also to help you acquire longer-term coping strategies and modify underlying beliefs and patterns of behaviour.
