Positive Behavioural Change
“A failure is not always a mistake, it may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances.
The real mistake is to stop trying.”
We at the Behavioural Therapy Clinic understand how important personal health and well-being is to living a happy and successful life.
Sadly, there has never been a time where our personal health and well-being has been so threatened from factors such as work-life pressures, behavioural excesses, destructive habits, negative social interactions and even anxieties rising from our own thoughts, feelings and fears.
Utilising tried and tested therapies, evidenced from the field of behavioural science, we will listen to your needs and concerns before constructing a bespoke behavioural intervention treatment plan designed to achieve your specific behavioural change goals.

This is a treatment approach based on clinically applying theories of behaviour that have been extensively researched over many years. It is thought that certain behaviours are a learned response to particular circumstances and these responses can be modified. Behavioural therapy aims to change harmful and unhelpful behaviours that an individual may have.
This was developed later and focuses on clinically applying research into the role of cognitions (our personal thoughts) in the development of emotional disorders. It looks at how people think about and create meaning about, situations, symptoms and events in their lives and develop beliefs about themselves, others and the world. These ways of thinking (harmful, unhelpful or 'false' ideas and thoughts) are seen as triggers for mental and physical health problems. By challenging ways of thinking, cognitive therapy can help to produce more helpful and realistic thought patterns.
Cognitive therapy was developed in the 1960s by Aaron Beck, an American psychiatrist. He felt that his patients were not improving enough through simple analysis and believed that it was their negative thoughts that were holding them back.
The term 'cognitive behavioural therapy' (CBT) has come to be used to refer to behavioural therapy, cognitive therapy and therapy that combines both of these approaches. The emphasis on the type of therapy used by a therapist can vary depending on the problem being treated. For example, behavioural therapy may be the main emphasis in phobia treatment or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) because avoidance behaviour or compulsive actions are the main problems. For depression the emphasis may be on cognitive therapy.
