How CBT Can Help

Our thoughts control how we feel about ourselves and the way we behave. For many reasons such as childhood events, life experiences and the circumstances we live, we can start to think in irrational ways.
Working with your therapist, you will separate your thoughts then learn how to challenge any unhelpful, irrational ones & change these into positive, more rational thoughts, which will lead you to feeling and behaving better.
- Become More Rational
- Control The Way You Think
- Change The Way You Feel
- Be Calmer and More Relaxed
- Be More Positive
- Manage How You Feel & Act
In your mind, thoughts are like a constant conversation. Quickly, thoughts come and go. We hardly ever reflect on them, especially the negative ones.
However, for your mental wellbeing it is critical to reflect on any negative thoughts since they affect how we feel and behave in a negative way.
Give these questions some thought, provide an explanation, and write down your answers.
- What causes you concern?
- What is the likelihood of your concerns coming true?
- Do you base this opinion on facts or emotions?
- What is the proof that it will or won't happen?
- Are you interpreting the evidence incorrectly.
- Do you have any presumptions that you are including in your interpretations?
- Could there be additional perspectives you can consider, and if so, what are they?
- Do you consider all information or simply that which confirms your opinion?
- Could you be overstating the negatives in your concern?
- Could you be understating the positives in your concern?
- Have you had this thought before, perhaps on many occasions?
- Are the sources for your concern trustworthy?
- Are you thinking the worst-case scenario or a likely scenario?
- Of all the scenarios, which has the greatest chance of occurring?
Common thinking errors that will effect your mental wellbeing and hold you back in life.
Ignore the positive
- You focus more on negative events and overlook positive ones when they occur.
Exaggerating small problems
- Making a huge deal out of a tiny issue or making anything slightly problematic out to be the worst thing imaginable.
Looking into the future
- Believing that you already know the future and that it will be bad.
Mind reading
- Assuming, without sufficient knowledge, that you know what another person is thinking or why they are acting a certain way.
Negative self-perception
- Having a negative self-perception and believing it to be true in everything you do.
Standards are too high
- Believing that you must be flawless in all you do to be a good person.
Blaming yourself
- Blaming yourself for everything that goes wrong in your life, even if you were not involved.
Taking feelings to be facts
- The conviction that something must be real if you can feel it. For instance, if I feel ugly, I must be ugly.
Insistence
- Insisting that something is the case or should be done in a specific way.
How we feel about ourselves and the environment around us is controlled by our thoughts. Negative thoughts can depress our mood, positive thoughts make us feel better.

We can raise our mood by recognising these unfavourable habitual thoughts and changing them with more positive ones.

Every time you have a negative thought, write it down and replace it with how you could have felt more positively. Notice how often you have these thoughts and just how they make you feel. For example:

Situation: Your performance at work has been criticised by your supervisor.
Negative Thought: Nothing I do is right.
Negative Emotion: Nervous and depressed.
Negative Behaviour: Avoiding your supervisor because you feel you will get into more trouble and you start to give subpar work.
Positive Rational Thought: I'll have to think of a better strategy and work harder for the next review.
Positive Rational Emotion: Disappointed but motivated.
Positive Rational Behaviour: You ask your supervisor for constructive feedback and suggestions on how to get better.

By using this CBT technique, it will help you bring these thoughts more to the conscious mind, you can then start learning how to change the thought, so that you will have a more positive life.
