Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is an approach used by many psychologists to help their patients deal with a variety of mental and emotional challenges.
It’s a problem-focused, action-orientated talking therapy that has proven to be extremely beneficial in the treatment of depression and anxiety.
And the principle that underlies the therapy is that if we can change the way we think, we can change the way we feel…
By training ourselves to identify negative, dysfunctional and destructive thoughts (a less intuitive task than you may think), we can then begin to work on replacing them with healthy ones.
And the benefits of CBT have been championed by psychologists for decades.
But now, new research suggests that CBT can not only change our thought patterns, it can literally rewire our brains!
