What is CBT?

In this video I will teach you the basics of what CBT (cognitive behaviour therapy) is and why I think it is one of the most important tools for you to have in your resilience bag when it comes to relieving stress, anxiety and depression.

I have used CBT for over 20 years now both personally and professionally and I know it works – that is aside from proven research studies which show it to be one of the most effective therapeutic tools to help people overcome stress, anxiety and depression.

If you would like a free chapter from my first book which explains CBT and the Ten Thinking Traps in more details please click here.

Hope you enjoy the video and if so please do subscribe to my YouTube channel as there will be plenty more useful videos coming up.

If you feel this video would be helpful to someone else you know please feel free to share and I would love any feedback.

All the best and remember – Never Give Up!

David Fox is an author, speaker and registered psychologist with a masters degree in psychology. He believes that overcoming issues like anxiety and depression are best tackled on multiple fronts such as exercise, supplements, working with your thoughts and beliefs, watching your diet and talking to someone who can provide empathy and support while you figure things out. His goal is teach people individually and within organisations in how to help themselves thrive. In addition, David supports patients who would like to eventually reduce or potentially stop taking anti-depressant medication if they are finding major negative side effects from remaining on the medications and looking for alternative routes to a better quality of life. This is not for everyone, and yes some people may need to remain on some amount of medication – especially those with bi-polar disorder or schizophrenia. However, for those whose issues began as anxiety and/or depression, there may certainly be another way to healing other than medication. David is the author of the book Change your Life! Hope and Healing for Anxiety and Depression.
