Just What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) ?
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in Derby is a flexible approach in changing negative or rigid ways of thinking and feeling. It is not the events themselves, but purely the meaning a person gives to them. Negative / anxious thought patterns that build over time, become a belief system and fail to change. By identifying these negative or distorted perceptions I will work with you to evaluate and change the way you are thinking and ultimately feeling.
Because this therapy is pertaining to your individual needs, and focuses on your negative / anxious thought patterns and processes, you will learn to become more flexible and able to accept and adapt new cognitive skills. CBT therefore encourages better coping skills and strategies and, more importantly, well into the future, creates and maintains a significantly reduced relapse rate.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in Derby has more than just a purely mental health benefit. Helping people to cope better with anxiety and depression can also have a positive effect on physical health, therefore leading to fewer hospital admissions and less dependency on medication, local GP services – and helping them to get back to work where relevant, or just simply by enjoying life.
