Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Rose Park Psychology: The Road to Better Mental Health

Cognitive behavioural therapy or CBT is one of the most widely used therapy techniques for a wide range of mental health issues. It is a tried and tested method for treating depression, anxiety, PTSD, substance abuse, and much more. At Rose Park Psychology we provide CBT treatment in Adelaide. We combine it with other techniques to create tailored solutions for our patients and help them on their journey of mental peace and well-being.

Here’s all you need to know about Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT):

What is It?
Cognitive behavioural therapy is a method of psychological treatment that utilises the relation between thoughts, feelings, and behaviour to help people improve their lives. It is based on the principle that mental health issues are a result of unhealthy thinking patterns that lead to unhealthy coping mechanisms. By addressing and correcting the behavioural issues that come with these thought processes, a person can learn to think along healthier lines. CBT also addresses the way that people feel, not just how the feel and behave.

How Does It Work?
CBT works on the belief that mental illnesses cause cognitive distortions, which are irrational thinking patterns associated with a mental health disorder. These result in aberrant feelings and cause the person to pick up coping habits that are ultimately harmful to their mental as well as physical health. By adopting a problem-focused approach of identifying the problematic behaviour and its source, and then orienting the actions of the person towards a healthier, more logical habit, the thinking pattern of the person can be taught to go in a better direction.

Is It Effective?
CBT aims to help a person gain a better understanding of their own actions and thoughts as well as better rationalise the actions and motivations of others. In simple words, a person is taught to be more self-aware while also being more sensitive to their environment. This helps them better recognise their issues, even right at their inception and immediately take prescribed steps to correct them. Research has shown it to be highly effective in milder cases of depression, anxiety, and stress-related issues. In some cases, it was found to be more effective than other psychotherapeutic methods and even medicinal approaches.

What Can It Help With?
CBT is proven to be effective in treating a variety of issues including depression and anxiety disorders, eating disorders, personality disorders, psychosis, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, body dysmorphia, OCD, PTSD, tics and other repetitive behaviour disorders, addiction and substance abuse, etc. Emerging research shows it can even help neurodivergent individuals without intellectual disabilities and dementia and MCI patients.

Benefits of Seeing a Psychologist
A psychologist can help you in ways no one else can:

No Judgement
The number one cause of people not seeking help is the fear of judgement. With a psychologist, you can let go of that fear. You will be helped with zero judgement and nothing but your welfare will be the priority.

Professional Help
Psychologists are qualified and trained to provide industry-ratified treatment. Their techniques are guaranteed to help you with the issue you are struggling with and provide you with a validated method of managing it.

Independent Perspective
A psychologist does not know you or the people involved in your life. Your actions do not directly affect them. Hence, the point of view and explanations they provide are always free of any hidden agenda or personal benefit.

When you see a psychologist, their only aim is to help you get better. The feelings of other people or society do not matter to them. You can be assured that any treatment you receive will be geared towards ensuring your mental well-being.

Constructive Assistance
CBT is meant to help you improve your thoughts and actions in a constructive manner. A psychologist ensures that this treatment method is used in the right manner to help you get better and improve your life.
