Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
CBT is a form of psychological therapy focusing on challenging and changing people’s thought processes and behaviours. It aims to help a person manage a problem by changing how they think and act. Unlike other forms of psychological therapy, it focuses on problems and difficulties you have now, rather than issues from the past. Some women report improvement in their menopausal symptoms, and ability to cope with their symptoms, via this method.
This is a technique used to help focus on the present moment, rather than the past or future. It is often done via the medium of meditation, yoga and breathing exercises. The aim of therapy is to help people become more aware of their present thoughts, feelings and body sensations, so that instead of feeling overwhelmed by them, one is better able to manage them.
