Mental health blog

Welcome to Mandy’s mental health blog. This blog covers Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Psychology and relationship counselling. Life can get tough and psychotherapy helps immensely. Being able to speak to someone objective is hugely helpful on its own. A qualified mental health expert knows what to look for. They can easily figure out what the problem is. Once the problem has been identified, CBT offers many strategies and interventions to help.

Cognitive behavioural therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy helps you to reduce anxiety and depression (as well as other mental health disorders). CBT  examines your thoughts, the emotions that appear as a result of those thoughts and your subsequent behaviour, as a consequence of your thoughts and behaviour. Many of us receive incorrect ‘programming’ from childhood and this lead to automatic negative thoughts. These negative thoughts create a distorted view of the world. We forget that our thoughts aren’t facts and that we never perceive reality directly. We all engage in unhelpful thinking that has no bearing on reality. CBT helps you to identify these errors in thinking and dismiss thoughts.
