Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is often referred to as CBT and is a therapeutic style psychologists can use to help you to challenge your unhelpful thinking styles and behaviours.
CBT is based on the premise that your feelings and actions in relation to an event are caused by your beliefs about the event. Therefore, as a client, you will learn to identify your beliefs and how to challenge them. On a behavioural level, you will be taught healthy behaviours and routines to maximise your well-being. Relaxation is one such behaviour.
CBT has been shown to be very effective in the treatment of anxiety, depression, addiction and other mental health concerns. This is due to its practical application in a variety of situations and the simplicity of its strategies.
Renee Mill has adapted CBT to create the EBB FLOW model. This model demonstrates how beliefs, feelings and behaviours interact and influence one another in a fluid manner. This model forms the basis of Renee’s unique treatment method and book.
The core of the program is to teach alternate ways of thinking in a systematic, 4-step manner. With practice, you will be able to master your symptoms and your life. Not only is the program simple to learn and easy to use, it is practical. With the help of these tools you will learn how to change your thoughts, behaviours, feelings and thereby, your physiological state.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is recognised by Medicare Australia because it is evidence-based. This means that there is a lot of research to back up its usefulness and efficacy. This also means that Medicare will cover part of your treatment. For more information on affordable counseling, click here.
