Behavioural therapy and cognitive therapy are about everyday problems and the corresponding hampering thoughts and feelings. In behavioural therapy, your behaviour is the focus; how you behave determines largely how you feel. Cognitive therapy is about your thoughts; how you feel about things. Cognitive therapy assumes that negative feelings are not created by events, but by the biased way in which you see things.
Cognitive behavioural therapy is one of the most-commonly applied forms of therapy in the Netherlands. It begins by mapping out the problematic behaviour and the circumstances in which your behaviour is hampered. Once mapped out, the therapist will in deliberation with you look at how you can change your behaviour and thoughts in such situations. You will learn how to interpret your negative thoughts differently and learn to look at your own feelings and observations in a different light. The goal of the therapy is to make the negative feelings disappear and achieve a change in your behaviour.
