Thoughts & Feelings adapts the powerful and widely adaptable techniques of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) into a set of tools readers can use, not to solve a particular problem, but to overcome any of the emotional and behavioural changes that life throws their way.
CBT recognizes that most negative feelings arise from confused, irrational thoughts. By learning to identify and change these thoughts and by replacing destructive and limiting behaviours with new, more constructive ones, readers can start steering their lives in the direction they want to go.
