When it comes to talk therapy there are many approaches that
can be helpful to our mental health. As part of our efforts to demystify the
world of psychotherapy, this week we are going to look at Cognitive Behavioural
Therapy (CBT) and try to debunk the myths around CBT for clients and
Joining Dil and Anne Marie for today’s episode is Eoin
Stephens, Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Trainer who has more than 25 years of
experience in the field of Counselling and Psychotherapy. Eoin specialises in
such areas as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Addictive Behaviours,
Sexual Addictions and Social Anxiety, as well as in Counselling and
Dil, Anne Marie and Eoin discuss what CBT is in a nutshell, some
of the incorrect myths about CBT for both clients and therapists, the
collaborative nature of CBT—the client learns how CBT works, so that they can
help themselves, as well as how CBT focuses on the patterns that perpetuate
mental health problems.
They also discuss experiential learning: how with CBT, a lot
of the important mental shifts come between sessions rather than in the
sessions; the creativity and exploration within CBT; and also, the limits of
CBT, when it isn’t suited to clients.
