What is Cognitive Behaviour Therapy?
CBT is a psychotherapy that is based on the cognitive model: the way that individuals perceive a situation is more closely connected to their reaction than the situation itself.
One important part of CBT is helping clients change their unhelpful thinking and behavior that lead to enduring improvement in their mood and functioning.
For example, logically smoking makes no contribution to one’s health, let alone taking away from it, but one continues to smoke because of the mental associations with it. So is for sugar/chocolates when on a diet. The mind looks at it as deprivation and hence the cravings increase significantly.
CBT is one of the most successful forms of counselling since it allows for practical tools which can be implemented for self-empowerment. It is possibly the best way forward into building on the present strengths and enhancing them more towards the future.
Unlike traditional Psychotherapy and Counselling it focuses less onto the past/future and more on the existence in the here and now.

"I have no words to thank you enough for what you have done for me. Or as you always mentioned, I have done for myself. People around look at me and wonder if I am still the same Ricardo or I have had a soul replacement. I feel like a new born child.
I can breathe more fully with all that power in my lungs. I smell life with so many fragrances in each moment. My house, my car, my clothes and my life smells so real. Each day I am discovering so much more because now I have quit smoking."
