Challenging Irrational Thinking

This programme is the most popular and sought after training programme that Margaret delivers. It is relevant to all walks of life and in all settings be that in companies, organisations or for individuals. When we are emotionally healthy and have a healthy way of viewing ourselves, others and the world, we are much more likely to be more productive on a personal and professional level. Sick leave absences are less, job satisfaction is higher and our everyday challenges seem easier to deal and cope with.

At the heart of all CBT is the need to challenge and change irrational thinking. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is intensely practical and solution focused. It is backed up by many years of research and has a proven track record in helping people to change. By understanding how our thoughts and our behaviours are connected we can start to address our challenges and change our thought and behaviour patterns. 

Many people struggle with “irrational thoughts” that cause them to feel fear, anxiety, depression, anger, hurt, guilt and shame. These irrational thoughts, which for the best part have no true basis in fact, can lead to self-enforced isolation, obsessive compulsive behaviour, lashing out, self harm, eating disorders, long periods of sick leave etc.

The Overcoming Irrational Thinking Programme helps individuals to:

  • Understand irrational thinking and where it comes from,
  • Develop a CBT framework to assess irrational thinking,
  • Learn the skills required to challenge/dispute this irrational thinking,
  • Replace unhealthy beliefs with more healthy rational ones.
