Cognitive behavioural therapy is a psychological approach that is derived from models evaluated within the academic discipline of behavioural and cognitive psychology. Research has shown CBT to be affective for a wide range of problems.It employs techniques that are focused on changing errors or biases in the way you think-'Cognitive' and what you do, 'Behaviour'.
The client and therapist work together to identify and understand problems in terms of the relationship between thoughts, feelings and behaviour. It focuses on the 'here and now' problems and difficulties rather than the possible causes from the past and looks at ways of improving your state of mind now.
Using the cognitive approach within relationship counselling the therapist aims to increase awareness concerning perceptions, assumptions and standards of communication between the couple. To challenge their styles of thinking in order to promote the changes in emotions and behaviours the couple desire.
