CBT for Families

Cognitive-behavioral family therapy can be an approach to improve your family’s relationships. Through family therapy, which focuses on the use of behaviour modification, CBT can help to change the interactional patterns of family members. This will help to rebuild bridges and most important perceptions that can directly help improve the ambience within your household.

The focus of CBT for families is to improve the core beliefs to help improve the emotions and behaviours of family members. Often members of families are influenced by each other’s actions. Consequently, the behaviour of one family member’s emotions can lead other family members to follow suit with their actions. This can lead to stress within the household and affect more than one member and can most often have a direct impact on partners relationships.

How do you know if you are anxious?

The easiest signs of anxiety to recognise are physical changes, such as sweating, a racing heart, palpitations, or rapid breathing. These changes are caused by an increase in adrenaline, the substance which is released by your body to help you get ready to deal with danger or escape from something. It is quite normal to feel anxious when you are facing something dangerous or difficult, but it is not usual to feel anxious all the time or to feel that anxiety is ruling your life. Take our simple online test to see if you are anxious or depressed. Often these two conditions occur together

Using CBT to improve your Household

If teenagers can see there is an emotional disconnection between parents due to unrest in a household this can lead to anxiety and often add more pressure on the family to change the core beliefs of the house. Parents who often intrusively take over tasks for teenagers and children can often impose an immature level of functioning for the members of the family. By becoming overbearing and taking control with too much motherly instinct it can leave children and teenagers become more reliable and struggle with problem solving. If this is the case it can lead to examples of anxiety and depression as they have become overly reliant on others.

This can help bring back structure to your house and help improve the wellbeing of every member of the house. By doing it in your own time at your own pace you aren’t locked into a time with a therapist you can do it all online allowing you to get the most out of the course.
