Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is not a single treatment but a family of approaches that emphasizes the interaction of thoughts, emotions, and behaviour. It is essentially a form of talk therapy and, as such, operates at the cognitive level but impacts on emotions and behaviour as well as thoughts. Its experiential component comes from self-monitoring of thoughts and emotions and from implementing behavioural experiments and observing their outcomes.

The particular approach taken by our team is based on “Third Wave” CBT therapies (CBT-3): Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Cognitive Processing Therapy, Behavioural Activation, and Metacognitive Therapy.

Thoughts affect how we feel and what we do. Emotions affect how we think and what we do. What we do affects how we think and feel.

One of the main things that distinguishes these therapies from classical CBT and cognitive therapy is a more cautious use of “thought challenging” and content-oriented interventions and a greater emphasis on developing skills that address the core processes that perpetuate mental suffering. To meet your individual needs,we adapt strategies from Third Wave Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy along with other evidence-based therapies.
