Picture this, it’s Monday morning and your boss has just emailed you saying: ‘Can we have a chat?’. The four worst words in history, right? I mean the last time this happened it didn’t end well.

CBT stands for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, which is less complicated than it sounds. It simply combines cognitive therapy, which is the way we think (the brain), with behavioural therapy (our actions), to readjust the way that we process information.
It seeks to help you change the way you approach your thoughts, so you can clear your mind of negative intrusion and find a different solution.
