Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)  for Individuals and Group For Depression

What is CBT?

CBT or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a collection of skills and techniques designed to help people deal with life problems more effectively. Through practice, people form new mental habits that drastically reduce symptoms, promote well being and prevent relapse.

The central principle of CBT is that our thoughts, feelings, physiology and behaviour all inter-relate and affect one another.

Changes in thoughts behavioral can impact our moods and physical functioning.  When people are in distress (be it from depression, anxiety, body image concerns, substance abuse, etc.), it is often because of a downward spiral effect between these variables.  CBT aims to reverse that spiral to an upward momentum toward health.

Does it work?

Study after study has confirmed CBT’s effectiveness.   CBT is recognized as an important component in the treatment of Depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, substance abuse, bipolar disorder, and many other mental illnesses.
