CBT helps you changeunhelpful thinkingandbehaviour patterns. CBT emphasises that thoughts, feelings and behaviours are interlinked
and strongly influence each other. Negative or fearful thinking can lead to negative feelings that drive negative behaviours. These negative behaviours then reinforce the negative
thoughts. A vicious cycle can develop that feeds anxiety, stress,
depression, and other mental health problems.
As a cognitive behaviouraltherapistin Kinsale, Cork, I am passionate about using evidence-based
psychological therapy to best help adults andunder-16sovercome problems. My approach is a practical one – our aim is turning that vicious cycle into a helpful virtuous cycle.
Unlike other therapeutic approaches, the ultimate aim ofCBT is for you to learn to become your own therapist, equipped with the psychological skills necessary to meet future
challenges and ensure lasting change.
