Private Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
The underlying concepts of CBT are:
Psychological issues are partly based on faulty and unhelpful ways of thinking.
Psychological issues are partly based on learned patterns of unhelpful behaviour.
People suffering from psychological problems are usually able to learn better ways of coping with them, in order to feel better and to have more fulfilling lives.
Strategies to change thinking patterns might include:
Using problem-solving skills to cope with difficult situations.
Learning to identify one’s own distortions in thinking that are causing problems, and then rethinking them in light of reality.
Learning to develop a greater sense of confidence is one’s own abilities.
CBT treatment also usually involves efforts to change behavioural patterns. These strategies might include:
Facing one’s fears instead of avoiding them.
Using role playing to prepare for potentially problematic interactions with others.
Learning to calm one’s mind and relax one’s body.
