Challenge Your Thinking

Summary

In this episode Aylssa talks about the 10 different ‘Thinking Traps’ sometimes called ‘Cognitive Distortions’ that we can get ourselves into that fuel poor mental health including Anxiety and Depression. As our thinking fuels our emotions (and vice versa), paying attention to what our brain is telling us can help us challenge what is untrue or unhelpful and help us feel better. Thoughts, like feelings, are not facts. 

This approach is the basis of Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which is an evidence based strategy for Anxiety and Depression.
The basis for the episode came from the book “The Borderline Personality Disorder Toolbox” by Jeff Riggenback, PHD, LPC.

Episode length 10 minutes.
