What is CBT?

Q. I have heard a lot about it. Is that what you do?

A. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is one of many psychotherapy approaches. At its core there is the basic tenet that the way we think influences our feelings and our behaviors. By identifying negative and distorted cognitions we can lift our mood and make significant changes in our lives. As an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, I tailor the sessions based on my client’s individual needs, and CBT is one of the many approaches I would use.
