Janet has a diploma in CBT- COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY.
CBT- cognitive behavioural therapy– is based on the principle that individuals learn unhelpful ways of thinking and behaving over a long period of time. However, identifying these thoughts and how they can be problematic to feelings and behaviours can enable individuals to challenge negative ways of thinking, leading to positive feelings and behavioural changes. It is possible for therapy to take place on a one to one basis, with family members or even as a group depending on the issue and how the individual feels most comfortable.
CBT is a practical counselling therapy, which is likely to work best treating a specific issue as it focusses on particular problems and how to overcome them.
CBT sessions may consist of a number of activities including :
- coping skills
- challenging certain thoughts
- thought stopping
