Cognitive Behavioural Coaching (CBC) - individual and group sessions

The Mind Game

Coaching can be defined as 'the art of facilitating the performance, Cognitive Behavioural Coaching (CBC)learning and development of another'.

Cognitive Behavioural Coaching (CBC) is based on the principles and practice of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

Cognitive behavioural approaches emphasise that how we react to events is largely determined by our views of them, not by the events themselves. Through examining and re-evaluating some of our less helpful views we can develop and try out alternative viewpoints and behaviours that may be more effective in aiding problem-solving, gain more control over our emotions and behaviour, and achieve our goals.

CBC is time-limited, goal-directed and focused on the here and now, and is an evidence based and effective approach that is used in both clinical and non-clinical settings.

CBC group sessions are usually two-hour sessions run over a four week period, allowing participants to put theory into practice, review progress, and become their own coaches to maintain future progress. Individual sessions are also available.
