Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

To understand behavioural therapy it is best to understand the meaning of each words...


every aspect of mental life – our thoughts, memories, mental images, reasoning, decision making, and so on...

Simply put it means ‘thought processes’; that is what goes on in our minds; our ‘thoughts‘. It also means ‘knowledge’; what we ‘know’, ‘believe’ or ‘think’. It can also mean ‘perception’; or how we ‘see things’ or ‘interpret’ or ‘understand’ them.


Any observable action or reaction of a living organism- everything from overt actions through subtle changes electrical activity occurring deep inside our brains

means what we ‘do’ or how we ‘respond’ or ‘react’

CBT also refers to feelings, physical reactions and the environment.
