How does CBT Therapy London work?
"It's not events themselves that upset us but the meanings we give them, and the beliefs we hold about them"
CBT Therapy helps us learn how to counter those negative meanings and beliefs. The therapy is based on the understanding that by changing how we think about things (our cognitive processes), we can change the way that we feel (our emotions), and the way that we react (our behaviour).
Cognitive behavioural therapy focuses on the current thoughts, beliefs and attitudes that we hold and how this relates to the way that we feel and how we behave. Behaviours and feelings are explored in order to understand our thought processes and how we deal with them. A simple model is to look at an event, how you interpret it, and what emotional response you experience.
Is it Effective?
Clinical trials have shown that CBT can substantially reduce the symptoms of many emotional disorders. Cognitive behavioural therapy London can help change the way you perceive your problems, and empower you with the coping skills to deal with them in the longer term. It can rapidly bring about long-lasting results and is suitable for many different personality types.
Here's an example of the way negative, unhelpful cognitive processes can adversely affect your life and the way you feel about yourself. Imagine this scenario; you're walking down the street and someone you know passes you without saying hello or acknowledging you. Now look at the possible reactions you could have:
a) Negative and Unhelpful Reaction:
Interpretation - "I must have done something to offend them, maybe they don't like me any more".
Emotional Response - Feel sad, rejected, worried, anxious and paranoid, try to avoid them the next time.
b) Realistic and Positive Reaction:
Interpretation - "They might be busy or perhaps have a lot on their mind, I'll leave them just for now"
Emotional Response - Feel concerned, wonder if there's anything you could do to help, contact them when you get home.
During CBT Therapy sessions, you'll learn techniques and strategies that you'll be able to practice for yourself. Equipping you with knowledge and coping skills you can apply in all aspects of your life.
All sessions are conducted by experienced therapist; Paul Levrant who is an anxiety control and stress management specialist.
