CBT and addiction

In CBT, you and your therapist work together to identify and change negative thinking and behaviour patterns which may contribute to your emotional distress.  The focus of your therapy will be to recognise and gently change your thoughts or self-talk which express your beliefs and perceptions.  Cognitive approaches centre on replacing one thought, belief or form of self-talk with another.  CBT is also an effective way to learn more balanced ways of thinking about and coping with life events and relationships. 

Running is an much easier if you have CBT to treat your addiction
