Behaviourism is a school of thought based on the idea we learn from our environment. Behavioural therapy can help with anxiety, depression, anger management, low self-esteem, obsessive-compulsive tendencies, self-harm, post-traumatic stress, suicidal ideation and other unhelpful behaviours. 

What is Behavioural Therapy?

Behavioural therapy is a broad term describing techniques used to change unhelpful behaviour. Considered extremely successful, research has shown it is effective in a wide range of situations.  By focusing on a challenging situation in your life we investigate pinned down, learned behaviours and how your environment is influencing them. The environment can be your immediate surroundings, your family dynamics or the atmosphere at work for example. 

The idea behind the sessions is for you to become aware of any behaviours that are not helpful to your mental wellbeing.  Becoming aware is a great first step. Developing the motivation to change the behaviour and choosing new approaches has a real impact on the quality of your life. Behaviour Therapy support such changes.
