CBT Therapy

How CBT works?

People in therapy are helped to unlearn negative reactions and learn new ones. CBT helps breakdown overwhelming problems into small, manageable parts. Therapists help people set and reach short term goals. Changing attitudes and behaviours can help people learn to address specific issues in productive ways.

CBT therapy may employ common techniques such as:

Journaling generally involves the practice of keeping a diary or journal that explores thoughts and feelings surrounding the events of your life. There are several different ways to do this. Journaling, as a stress management and self-exploration tool, works best when done consistently, but even occasional, sporadic journaling can be stress relieving when the practice is focused on gratitude or emotional processing.

Journaling allows people to clarify their thoughts and feelings, thereby gaining valuable self-knowledge. It’s also a good problem-solving tool; oftentimes, one can hash out a problem and come up with solutions more easily on paper.

Journaling about traumatic events helps one process them by fully exploring and releasing the emotions involved, and by engaging both hemispheres of the brain in the process, allowing the experience to become fully integrated within one’s mind. 

  • Learn to listen without judgment.
  • Seek to understand.
  • Proactively find conflicting views
  • Argue the other side.
  • Kill your self-limiting beliefs.
  • How to question your beliefs.

Mindfulness is a type of meditation in which you focus on being intensely aware of what you’re feeling and sensing in the moment, without interpretation or judgement. Practising mindfulness involves breathing methods, guided imagery and other practices to relax the body and mind and help reduce stress.

According to neuroscience research, mindfulness practices dampen activity in our amygdala and increase the connections between the amygdala and prefrontal cortex. Both of these parts of the brain help us to be less reactive to stressors and to recover better from stress when we experience it.
