WHAT IS CBT? HOME
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a psychotherapeutic approach which is used by psychologists and therapist to help promote positive change in individuals.
Cognitive-behavioural therapy is based on the idea that our thoughts
cause our feelings and behaviours, not external things, like people, situations,
and events. The benefit of this fact is that we can change the way we think to
feel / act better even if the situation does not change.
