WHAT WE THINK
The way we think determines both how we feel and how we behave. The way we think about ourselves, other people and our place in the world has a direct influence on our emotional state and our behaviour.
Consequently by changing the way we think we can positively influence our mood and how we respond to situations.
HOW DOES CBT WORK?
CBT can help you make sense of overwhelming problems by breaking them down.
This makes it clearer to see how they are all connected and how they affect you.
These parts are:
- The Problem/Situation
- Physical Feelings
- Actions/BehavioursEach of these areas can affect the others. How you think about a problem can affect how you feel physically and emotionally. It can also alter what you do about it.
CBT helps to identify vicious cycles that develop between these areas.
When you see the parts of the sequence clearly, it is easier to change them, therefore changing how you feel.The way in which individuals behave in relation to how they interpret events
plays an important role in the maintenance of their problem.
Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
