Cognitive Therapy Focusses on Cognition and Behaviour

The cognitive model of emotional disorders is central to every aspect of cognitive therapy: the formulation, intervention planning and change processes. Thus, the therapist seeks to understand the client's presenting problems in terms of maladaptive beliefs and behaviours and develops an intervention plan that will effect changes in the presenting problems through changes in beliefs and behaviours. When successes and difficulties are encountered in the therapeutic process these are formulated in terms of maladaptive beliefs and behaviours, and therapy proceeds accordingly.

EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique. It works to free the user of both physical and emotional pain and relieve chronic conditions by healing the physical responses our bodies make after we've been hurt or experienced pain. While some people do not carry the effects of these experiences, others have bodies that hold onto these memories, which affect the way the body works. Because it is a free and fast technique, even if you are not one hundred percent committed to whether it works or not, it is still worth giving it a shot and seeing if there is any improvement.
