The term "cognitive therapy" is also known as "cognitive behaviour therapy." Cognitive behavioural therapy addresses negative thoughts. Our "emotions" and "behaviour" are influenced by our thoughts. It is based on the idea that our thoughts, feelings, and behaviours are all interconnected and that by changing the way we think, we can change the way we feel and behave.
Cognitive therapy was developed in the 1960s by Aaron Beck, a psychiatrist who was searching for a more effective treatment for depression.
Cognitive therapy's fundamental principles are based on the idea that our thoughts and beliefs influence our emotions and behaviours. As a result, by altering our thoughts and beliefs, we can alter how we feel and behave. Cognitive therapy is a collaborative process between the therapist and the client that aims to identify and change negative thought and behaviour patterns.
