Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a type of talking counselling that aims to improve mental health. At its core is the principle that how we think, feel and act all work together. The therapy helps people to acknowledge and address their negative thought processes and behaviours, and encourages focus on the present, rather than the past.
What is cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)?
Through recognising and understanding the interactions between what your thoughts, feelings, behaviours, CBT can be extremely successful managing a whole range of different difficulties. Through identifying your negative thinking and behavioural patterns which you have learnt from the past, CBT can teach you tools to overcome these and create new alternatives to generate positive feelings and break the vicious cycle.
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for the workplace
With more and more time spent working, with ever increasing pressure, stress in the workplace is one of the most common occupational health issues. According to research by the Health and Safety Executive, more than half of all working days lost are now due to mental health problems in the UK.
There have been countless studies over the years to show that CBT can be an effective way of treating stress in the workplace. The counselling will look at how an employee thinks about themselves, others within the business, and those within the wider picture to identify where the negative thoughts and behaviours are stemming from. Through the usage of CBT, not only will employees reduce their workplace stress and feel happier about their jobs, it will in turn increase work productivity and reduce sick days caused by poor mental health.
