Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
CBT is based on the theory that thoughts, feelings and behaviors are all interconnected and impact one another. Thoughts are energy and have the power to impact the way we feel and thus, the way we respond to our feelings (our actions). For example, if we think “It’s never going to get better”, we most likely will feel hopeless and depressed, and therefore we then might try to cope with these negative feelings in an unhealthy way by binge eating.
When we challenge beliefs that are negative and limiting, we are able to replace these with positive and hopeful thoughts. This then positively affects the way we feel, leading us to act in a more self-affirming and healthy way. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a powerful tool for empowering clients to think, feel and act in ways that support their goals.
