Depression can affect your thinking, energy, feelings and behaviour. It can vary from mild to severe and can prove disabling in some cases, impacting on your family and work life. The aim of cognitive behavioural therapy is to help you realise that you can influence your mood by identifying and changing your thoughts and beliefs. Cognitive therapy focuses on discovering and challenging unhelpful assumptions and beliefs, and developing helpful and balanced thoughts. When feeling depressed one tends to feel lethargic and unmotivated. Those who are depressed often stay at home and avoid going out and interacting with people. As such, they may miss out on opportunities that help lift their mood. Behaviour therapy aims to identify and change aspects of behaviour that may perpetuate or worsen mood. Cognitive Behaviour therapy can help you learn the skills that will enable you to manage mood swings and anger. Use of skills learnt will also enable you to identify triggers and prevent relapse going forward.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy as used in the Treatment of Anxiety and Stress.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is one of the most effective forms of therapy developed to treat anxiety disorders. CBT focuses directly on identifying and changing the behaviours and thoughts that feed an anxiety disorder.

CBT offers a very efficient treatment (much less time consuming) that will enable you to feel in control of the anxiety and stress rather than the anxiety controlling you.

CBT can help you uncover the underlying causes of your worries and fears; learn how to relax; look at situations in new, less frightening ways; and develop better coping and problem-solving skills. Therapy gives you the tools to overcome anxiety and teaches you how to use them.

There are many effective CBT techniques used to treat Anxiety and Stress including but not limited to:

  • progressive muscle relaxation
  • diaphragmatic breathing
  • rational thinking
  • exposure therapy
  • desensitization

CBT can be used alone or in combination with medication. For further information on a specific anxiety Disorder click on
