Cognitive Behavioural Therapist Melbourne

Why Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?

Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) is considered to be the most effective treatment for a range of difficulties including but not limited to anxiety, depression and panic disorders. CBT is a type of psychotherapy that helps a person to identify and modify unhelpful thoughts and behaviours that lead to feelings of distress. CBT may involve a range of strategies and techniques, including psychoeducation, self-monitoring, cognitive restructuring, exposure therapy, and relaxation. Our cognitive behavioural therapists are Melbourne registered psychologists experienced in providing client-centred therapy for a range of difficulties.

> Anxiety

What is CBT?

CBT is a form of talking therapy used to treat a wide range of mental health problems. CBT is based on the idea that how we think (cognition), how we feel (emotion) and how we act (behaviour) all interact together. Specifically, our thoughts determine our feelings and our behaviour.


The CBT approach adopts the notion that your unhelpful thoughts can cause you distress and result in feelings of distress and other problems. When you suffer from psychological distress, how you interpret situations and events is a somewhat distorted or skewed perception. This can, in turn, have a negative impact on your behaviours, such as social isolation or withdrawal.

What to Expect from a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist in Melbourne?

CBT aims to help you become more aware of your thoughts, feeling and behaviours by increasing self-awareness of negative thoughts and distorted interpretations of events and to improve insight into associated behavioural patterns. These behaviours can often reinforce negative thinking patterns, assumptions, and beliefs about yourself and the world.
