In behavioural therapy, people learn how to change their behaviour.
The most common behavioural techniques are used in the treatment of anxiety disorders: desensitization, relaxation and breathing exercises.
Cognitive therapy focuses on thoughts, assumptions and beliefs.
People may learn to recognize and change faulty or maladaptive thinking patterns.
It's a way to gain control over racing, repetitive thoughts which often feed or trigger anxiety.
All therapists aim to help clients achieve desired change in the way they think, feel and behave.
CBT has shown it to be an effective form of psychotherapy, particularly for the following:
Anxiety & Panic Attacks
Phobias (e.g. agoraphobia, social phobia)
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Sexual and relationship problems
