Understanding and Transforming your Mindset

Do you feel like you are sabotaging your future success? I will help you to identify and challenge self-sabotaging thoughts and behaviours.

With my help, we can work on goal-setting, problem-solving, and cognitive restructuring and contribute to building a more positive self-image and fostering self-compassion. 

Together we will target the underlying thought patterns that drive self-defeating behaviours and help you find a new path towards building a successful life for yourself.



Strategies for Addressing Self-Defeating Habits

CBT incorporates mindfulness techniques to increase awareness of thoughts, emotions, and behaviours.

Mindfulness helps you to observe self-defeating thoughts without judgment, fostering emotional regulation and preventing impulsive actions.

It also helps with identifying specific triggers that lead to self-defeating behaviours.

Mindfulness and emotional regulation

Recognising your triggers allows you to develop proactive strategies for managing and responding to these situations more adaptively.

Through these interventions, CBT helps individuals break the cycle of self-defeating behaviours by addressing both the cognitive and behavioural components that contribute to their persistence. Regular sessions with a CBT therapist provide ongoing support, guidance, and reinforcement for individuals working towards positive change.
