Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) involves bringing awareness and efforts to increase certain behaviors that improve mood.
CBT focuses on the relationship between one’s thoughts, behaviors, and emotions. Some people experience low mood that is at least partially fueled by specific thought patterns – for example, negative thoughts about one’s competence or self-worth.
While no one has total control over which thoughts come up in our minds, we can exert some control over what we tell ourselves and the behaviours we engage in. CBT can help change this mental dialogue in ways that improve one’s mood.
You may be feeling like there is a long journey ahead to feeling better. The good news is that CBT approaches are both short term and focused on making you your own counsellor. Our goal is to help you get there.
