CBT is the link between the way you think and the way you feel. The quality of your thoughts predicts the quality of your feelings. So, if you think negatively, you will feel bad. If you focus on the positive, you will feel good. It may sound obvious but it can be very challenging, especially if you are going through a rough patch. CBT is a well-known and well-respected therapy which addresses this very issue.By changing your thoughts you can change how you feel. You can expect to create a more positive mind-set and be able to deal with setbacks more effectively. This is simple, but not necessarily easy so it is helpful to work with a CBT professional to guide you. Changing your thinking patterns has a truly positive effect on your life and your relationship with others. Not only that, your stress levels will significantly reduce and your emotional intelligence will increase – you couldn’t ask for better than that.
Your thinking patterns affect your stress levels, your mood, your behaviour, your choices, your anger response, anxiety levels and your self-esteem. Incorporating CBT therapy in your session (if it’s appropriate for you) can help you live life more fully and feeling more in control.
