What does cognitive behavioural therapy involve?

Cognitive behavioural therapy is an active type of psychotherapy, whereby the client and practitioner talk, act, and work together to achieve agreed therapeutic goals. Clients can expect to work actively within each session, as well as to receive guided assignments to be completed between sessions. These between-session assignments may include behavioural exercises and/or reading.

This model is concerned with the way people's beliefs about themselves and the world shape how they interpret experiences. The objective is to change self-defeating or irrational beliefs and behaviours by altering negative ways of thinking.

Therefore, a universal goal of cognitive behavioural therapy is to help people identify, understand, and modify their belief systems and also their self-defeating behaviours in order to function more effectively and happily.
