Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
In terms of psychological treatments, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a commonly practiced therapeutic tool that helps to examine your thought process. CBT is an effective treatment that helps people change the way they think so they feel better in their life. Our Energetics Institute therapists base CBT around a comprehensive CBT counselling service in Perth that is designed to help you in everything you do. We treat a variety of health issues including anxiety and depression or any other problems that you may be facing in our CBT sessions.
What Is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
CBT helps you identify some false or negative thoughts and replace those distorted thoughts with realistic and healthier ones. There is a relationship between your thoughts and how that affects your behaviour. You develop tendencies in childhood which relate to the inter-dependent relationship between your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. With support, you can change the way you think in order to influence the way you feel. You can also change your behaviour to affect your thoughts and feelings, regardless of the outside circumstances.
Your therapist will help you create new positive or realistic thought patterns for better overall mental health. You will then practice these techniques, so the old thought patterns are controlled and replaced where necessary. This will allow you to tackle and gain control of your mental illness and live a much more fulfilling life.
How does Cognitive Behaviour Therapy differ from a normal counselling sessions
The main difference between CBT and normal counselling sessions is that a therapist can change negative thoughts into positive ones. During guided seasons where you are tacking a variety of mental health issues (e.g. anxiety and depression), cognitive behavioral therapy can allow you handle your problems in a very effective manner.
Cognitive Therapy can essentially change whatever is causing your mental stress (or mental illness) to be reprogrammed and you will find that you are better equipped with a positive outlook to tackle any and all problems you may face in your daily life.
How Can Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Help You
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) helps you reside fully in the present moment so you can better live your life in a satisfying and meaningful way. CBT therapy can help you with your problems such that you can start to experience greater happiness and work productivity. Your anxiety and depression will ease and your relationship issues such as intimacy and how you relate to other people, will improve.
CBT is based on common sense information and so the help and treatment CBT therapy offer, means that people can directly relate to the information and treatment approaches. Sometimes this therapy is considered a reflective cognitive behavioural approach to dealing with mental health problems.
CBT includes tools that you can use daily in your life to track problem thinking and then change it yourself without needing to have the therapist there to work on your problems or do the reflective therapy in a session with a therapist.
CBT allows you to learn the tools and processes such that you can be constantly mindful of the thinking arising from any mental health disorder or depression, and quietly apply new thinking in the moment. This will help correct distortions and regain a neutral or positive mind free of further anxiety or debilitating symptoms.
What Does Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Involve
Many of the issues that you bring to your counselling sessions have their origins in distorted thinking patterns. CBT allows you to make these thought patterns conscious. For better mental health, we can help you can change them if required, and understand how your reactions play a part in how you experience and cope with life.
Our Perth based cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) can allow you to self-regulate your thoughts and interrupt emerging negative thoughts before they take over. With the help of one of our experienced cognitive behavioural therapists, you identify any distorted thoughts and then replace these with more accurate, grounded and positive thoughts and responses.
Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) can empower you to become mindful of your own thoughts, and to find ways of improving your thinking. If you master your own mind then you are then able to shape your reality by mastering your own mental and physical health.
Many disorders and named mental conditions can be tackled with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). However, emotional based disorders respond better to body based therapies which treat you as entire person and not just your mind.

How Does CBT Help Mental Illness
Mental Illness and Mental Health Disorders respond well to the new information and thoughts that CBT treatment and CBT sessions with a therapist provide. Mental illness and mental health problems all have a degree of distorted or negative cognitive behavioural problems involved.
The CBT therapy will positively affect mood, remove distorted thoughts, reduce fear and anxiety, and prevent negative thinking associated with depression. This will help calm your body and reduce bodily symptoms of anxiety, depression and mental health disorders, such as heart beat, bodily tension, energy and sleep patterns.
CBT is also beneficial and does not compromise medication approaches a psychologist, GP or psychiatrist may have prescribed as a treatment to the problems. Published research shows that CBT sessions with a therapist, combined with anxiety or depression medication, is the best possible treatment approach for these mental health disorders.
How Does CBT Increase Your Coping Skills
CBT is a treatment approach that allows people to regain control of their thinking and feeling states of mind. Anxiety and depression sufferers often feel overwhelmed by life and also their own racing or frantic thoughts.
The CBT sessions with a therapist allow people to learn therapy techniques that create a coping effect for a person. When a person can notice how they think, interrupt the thought process, replace the thought with new and accurate or rational replacements, they are taking control and learning to cope.
While people cannot directly prevent a thought arising, they can intervene with CBT therapy to shape or change a thought or problem thinking, and influence the direction of their mind, and their mood that results in part from their thinking.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as a therapy has been proven through global use as a therapy cognitive tool, to work and produce lasting results to mental thinking based problems and disorders.
