COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY (CBT)
CBT is appropriate for people of all ages, including children, adolescents, and adults. Evidence has mounted that CBT can benefit numerous conditions, such as major depressive disorder, anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, and many others.
AUTOMATIC NEGATIVE THOUGHTS (ANTS)
ANTS exacerbates emotional difficulties and fuels depression and anxiety. If our ANTS are not being dealt with and goes out of proportion, it automatically blocks us from seeing things in its true perspectives. We’ll continue to ruminate the same old thoughts and fail to learn anything new, basing our predictions and interpretations on a biased view, and making the difficulty that we face seem much worse. CBT helps people to correct these misinterpretations. Clients who go through CBT are encouraged to look at evidence from reality that either supports or refutes these thoughts. And by doing so, people are able to see things in a more objective and realistic way.
