Cognitive Therapies

What are Cognitive Therapies?

Cognitive Therapies are those types of intervention based upon the premise that the problem can be solved by changing your cognition i.e. your THOUGHT PROCESSES.

The Oxford English Dictionary defines cognition as follows: “The mental action or process of acquiring knowledge and understanding through thought, experience and the senses.” It is derived from the Latin cognitio, itself a derivative of cognoscere or “get to know”.

There is a wide body of scientific evidence supporting the fact that our emotional, or “affective”, experiences we have (positive or negative) are preceded by a cognitive act first. In simple terms, what we “feel” is caused by what (or how) we “think”.

It follows, therefore, that if we wanted to change how we are feeling, we should first change how we are thinking.

Sounds so simple, doesn’t it?

Cognitive Patterns are just HABITS

The challenge when we work on changing our thinking patterns is that the vast majority of these patterns have become “habituated” … a big word that basically means that we have formed habits in how we think, feel, and behave.

When you initially try to change these patterns consciously, it may seem as though you are fighting against yourself … like the habit is ‘unbreakable’ … and that you can’t win. Your brain, the subconscious element of it, LOVES familiarity … it has been taught to behave in this way over a long period of time, and is quite happy, quite comfortable in maintaining these behaviours that have served you so well in the past.

It’s important to remember that these habits are “learned”, is it not? They did not simply ‘pop’ into existence automatically … they were learned from experience and, most importantly, can be UNLEARNED using the correct methods!

Sooner or later, every habit can be overcome.

Our favoured approach to this is Cognitive Processing & Integration Therapy (CPI). CPI uses the technique of “Cognitive Free Association” to allow you to re-appraise past emotional experiences and to then re-integrate them into your experience in a more useful context, changing your cognition in the process.

 “… you’ve made me a man again! I can’t thank you enough, and neither can Mrs ******! I wasn’t able to perform [sexually], and have had it like that for years. Going back and finding out why this happened meant that I could deal with it. My only issue is that the sessions aren’t long enough. I felt so good that I didn’t want to come out [of hypnosis]”
