About the Series

Do you ever feel like your emotions are in control of you, instead of the other way around - or that your emotions are getting in your way and you don’t know why?

Most people don’t realize how deeply their thoughts and emotions impact their behaviors on a subconscious level. If left unaddressed, this can negatively impact your relationships, your ability to function, and your life - and lead to mental health issues like depression and anxiety.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) can change that outcome.

CBT will put you in the driver's seat of your emotions and give you the tools to address negative thoughts, fully realize your emotions, and change your behaviors for the better.

In this series, you’ll learn just how your emotions and thoughts influence your actions and impact your day-to-day life. You’ll learn about your core beliefs - which are the foundation of how you experience the world around you. You’ll understand dysfunctional assumptions - which are the rules you develop for how the world works based on those negative core beliefs. You’ll also be able to recognize your “negative automatic thoughts” - which negatively impact your behavior, often without you even realizing it.

With CBT in your mental health toolbox, you’ll finally have insight into how your emotions and thoughts impact your habits. With CBT, you can improve your mood, become better equipped to handle your emotions, and experience drastic progress in your relationships.

Above all, CBT can help you feel more connected to those you love. This six-session series will show you how.

Who Is This For?

This series is critical for anyone who wants better control of their emotions and a deeper understanding of how changing their thought process can help them achieve that goal.

If you or your loved one is seeking out therapy for a mental health condition, you’ll want to watch this series to see if CBT is a viable option.

This series is also integral for health workers who want a deeper understanding of cognitive behavioral therapy from a renowned neuropsychologist.
