Dip CBT ( Diploma in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy )
What is Cognitive Therapy?
Cognitive therapy is a type of therapy used to treat disorders such as depression, anxiety, addiction, phobias and other problems. It involves identifying irrational and distorted thoughts and learning to replace them with realistic and helpful thoughts.
How Cognitive Therapy works?
A thought can cause an emotion. So by changing the way you think, you can change how you feel.
CBT Cognitive behaviour therapy provides new ways of thinking and feeling within a short period of time, this therapy usually takes between 7 - 9 sessions. This is opposed to, often frequently long therapies. Some therapies can go on for many months and even years which, paradoxically holds that person back from going forward. The longer therapy continues, constantly reminds the client, that their problem is something drastic, becomes more reliant on the therapist, with nothing happening in respect to coping or feeling better.
People suffering depression tend to think or ruminate about the same old problem over and over again. Thinking of things in the past that hurt them, or feel guilty about, things they have not accomplished, and that they are useless and hopeless. They say ‘Things will never get better’, ‘I will never be able to have a good relationship, job’, ‘I’m no good at anything’ or ‘it’s my fault things went wrong’. These unrealistic self-critical evaluations develop pessimistic ideas, that create low self-esteem and a sense of hopelessness and helplessness.
Providing cognitive, behavioural CBT, and interpersonal approaches within hypnosis, allows that person to think and feel differently and produces sophisticated ways of overcoming Anxiety . Solutions for relief of General Anxiety Disorder through interventions for problem solving that are imperative and significantly reduces any relapses. These coping skills and mechanisms are resources within all of us, which are identified and brought out, to be utilised for the future. Clinical hypnosis creates the effectiveness of psychotherapy, which enables unique specific and positive changes to take place in the depressed individual.
