The basis of cognitive therapy is that thoughts play a key role in determining our feelings or moods and behaviour. By identifying and altering our thinking, we are able to see ourselves, situations and relationships in a more realistic and helpful way.

Cognitive therapy is highly collabrative and involves the therapist asking questions in a way that helps people think diffently about their problems. Part of this process includes teaching clients techniques so they can challenge their thinking and behaviour outside of sessions.
