CBT For Children & Teens

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, or CBT for short, is a talking therapy that can help your child understand how their thoughts (Cognitive) affects how they act (Behaviour).
That is to say that children believe what they think, so if they have self-sabotaging thoughts, such as thinking they are not good enough or worrying about making mistakes, then they will have low confidence & behave in a way that matches that thinking.

How CBT Can Help

For many reasons such as difficult events, life experiences and the circumstances we live, children can start to think in irrational ways.
Together with the therapist, your child will explore the negative thoughts that accompany pessimistic emotions and the consequential problems in their life. Our Cognitive Behavioural Therapy has helped many children and teens over the years in a private and confidential environment.
Learning skills and techniques to help understand negative signals and manage reactions, children will start to see things in an improved perspective, think more positively and be happier.

- Control The Way You Think
- Change The Way You Feel
- Be Calmer and More Relaxed
- Be More Positive
- Manage How You Feel & Act
Common thinking errors that will affect your child's mental wellbeing and hold you back in life.
Ignore the positive
- Focussing more on negative events and overlooking positive ones when they occur.
Exaggerating small problems
- Making a big deal out of a tiny issue or making anything slightly problematic out to be the worst thing imaginable.
Looking into the future
- Believing that they already know the future and that it will be bad.
Mind reading
- Assuming, without sufficient knowledge, that they know what another person is thinking or why they are acting a certain way.
Negative self-perception
- Having a negative self-perception and believing it to be true in everything they do.
Standards are too high
- Believing that they must be flawless to be a good person.
Blaming yourself
- Blaming themself for everything that goes wrong, even if it isn't their fault.
Taking feelings to be facts
- The conviction that something must be real. For instance, if I feel ugly, I must be ugly.
Insistence
- Insisting that something is the case or should be done in a specific way.
How we feel about ourselves and the environment around us is controlled by our thoughts. Negative thoughts can depress our mood, positive thoughts make us feel better.

We can raise our mood by recognising these unfavourable thoughts and changing them with more positive ones.

Every time you have a negative thought, write it down and replace it with how you could have felt more positively. Notice how often you have these thoughts and just how they make you feel. For example:

Situation: Your performance at school has been criticised by your teacher.
Negative Thought: Nothing I do is right.
Negative Emotion: Nervous and depressed.
Negative Behaviour: Avoiding your teacher because you feel you will get into more trouble and you start to give subpar work.
Positive Rational Thought: I'll have to think of a better way of working harder.
Positive Rational Emotion: Disappointed but motivated.
Positive Rational Behaviour: You ask the teacher for constructive feedback and suggestions on how to get better.

By using this CBT technique, it will help you bring these thoughts more to the conscious mind, you can then start learning how to change the thought, so that you will have a more positive life.
