It may involve practice of emotional regulation exercises, diary keeping to look for patterns in thoughts, feelings and behaviours or completion of forms.
What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?
Cognitive behaviour therapy is a talking therapy that involves practice in between sessions.
It works on the principle that our thoughts, feelings and behaviour interact and effect each other. CBT aims to help us to change our thinking patterns and behaviours to help emotional change.
