CBT Intensive Training

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on the ‘link’ between our thoughts, behaviours and emotions.  This is done by identifying distorted thinking through automatic thoughts, challenging and modifying maladaptive schemas, beliefs and behaviours, and helps one to recognize how they relate to others and their environments. CBT is an intervention that teaches clients to identify, evaluate and respond to dysfunctional beliefs and thoughts.
