Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

About our Program

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a therapeutic and evidenced-based support for individuals who are experiencing difficulties with negative thoughts that impact on their quality of life.

CBT has been demonstrated to be effective for individuals who present with issues such as anxiety, depression, anger, and/or relationships.

Our CBT program is specifically designed to support children, adolescents and young adults who also present with additional needs such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or Autism.

Individual CBT Sessions

The program is designed to meet the specific needs of the individual, through an initial assessment of needs and the individualisation of a therapeutic plan. After the initial assessment, individuals are invited to attend between 5-15 sessions where the individual is taught the skills to support themselves through the current situation as well as to tools to use for future challenges. CBT benefits individuals to gain control over their thoughts. It empowers individuals to challenge assumptions, use positive self-talk and develop effective coping strategies to deal with life challenges.

Across 5 to 15 Individualized Sessions, we work on building:

  • Skills to Support individuals through difficult situations

  • Tools and strategies to use for future challenges
