What is cognitive behavioural therapy?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a form of psychotherapy that explores how you think about yourself, the world and other people around you. It then explores how these thoughts affect your feelings and behaviour, and how by changing your thoughts, you can’t change the way that you feel and behave.


This part discusses the impact of our experiences and interactions on our thoughts, feelings and behaviour. The aim is to help women understand how the events and relationships that they have encountered has shaped their identity, and determined their behavioural patterns; so that they can identify negative thoughts, and learn strategies to manage and control their emotional well-being.
