Cognitive Behavioural Therapy at The Putney Clinic of Physical Therapy

COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy which is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are interconnected. To summarise this in a few words, ‘we feel the way we think’. CBT focuses specifically on the problems and difficulties that you are experiencing now, rather than issues rooted in the past.

So how does CBT work? When faced with an emotional breakdown, we would use cognitive behavioural therapy to discover the cause. What cognitive behavioural therapy shows is that it is not the ‘event’, but rather the thinking and beliefs that you use to interpret it. CBT sessions will show you how to be more aware of your thinking and beliefs, so you can recognise unhelpful habitual patterns in your thinking. If you can change how you think about something, then you can change how you feel and behave. The aim is for you to be more in control and less emotionally disturbed by your problems.

HOW COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY WORKS

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is about training the mind and changing our relationship with our thought. It helps people to manage their emotional problems. This is done by understanding and changing the way we think about things and so we can change how we feel. It is not positive thinking.

If you recognise any of the following, you may benefit from cognitive behavioural therapy.

  • Perhaps you’re at a standstill and can’t get that idea off the ground.
  • Maybe something is holding you back and making you feel anxious.
  • Possibly you are feeling lonely and are struggling to make new friends.
  • Perhaps you feel so low that you just can’t face seeing people.
  • Maybe you’re stressed at work or at home, or feeling overwhelmed.
  • Possibly you’re sleeping badly (a member of the 4am club) night after night.
  • It may be that you’re not feeling great about yourself (lacking confidence and self-belief).
  • Maybe you just want to take stock of where you are.
  • Or perhaps you want to chat something through without being judged or interrupted.
