WTF is CBT?

Ok, starting at the basics. I've got you!

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based approach that focuses on the connection between our thoughts, emotions, and behaviours. CBT aims to help us identify and challenge negative thought patterns and beliefs that contribute to emotional distress and problematic behaviours. Through exploring these patterns, we can learn to replace these thoughts and beliefs with more constructive and balanced perspectives. CBT equips us with practical coping skills and strategies to manage challenges and improve emotional well-being. It is a collaborative and goal-oriented therapy that empowers individuals to take an active role in their own mental health journey, fostering positive changes that can lead to lasting improvements in various aspects of life. 

The Cognitive Behavioural Techniques that may be tailored to you include:​ Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) or exposure therapy, thought records, behavioural activation, cognitive restructuring, relaxation techniques, assertiveness training, social skills training, problem-solving skills and mindfulness. 

Woah, woah, woah... Exposure therapy?

I know. I hear you.

You're probably thinking you'll have to dive head-first into your greatest fears and discomforts... But that's not the case! Together, we'll create an "exposure hierarchy," a representative sample of distressing items that you want to address. We'll gradually work through these items, starting at the most mild scenario. We do the same exposure repeatedly until it ain't no thang! Think of it like watching a scary movie... The first time is super scary! But if we watch it every day for a week, it's likely that movie will become boring. Once a scenario on your hierarchy no longer provokes significant distress, we move onto the next item. Typically, we find that when we work through some of the mild to moderately distressing items, that some of the higher ones come down in perceived distress.

See? That's not so bad!
