Chronological (best) ordering of posts so you have a beginning, a middle, and an end…


See below a listing of some my posts  – following this order, from beginning to end, will be the most efficiently helpful to you in understanding CBT and APPLYING it to yourself (theory is all well and good, but there is no big change without APPLICATION).

These principles can be applied no matter what the  disorder may be – stress, depression, general anxiety, social anxiety, OCD, phobias, whichever – in fact it should be taught in schools as a practical ‘guide to living’ and for great personal development – there is nobody that wouldn’t benefit from this knowledge and practice.

Posts 1 to 10 explain how and why you think and feel and behave the way you do – and subsequent dippy inny posts give you strategies and exercises to help you to learn calm rational thinking skills, and to understand and alter self sabotaging behaviours, and to gain a greater understanding of the primal physiology of our response to life – it’s a science, believe it. Learn to be happy, literally.

IMPORTANT… don’t forget to use the  Download Free CBT Worksheets/Handouts page too. CBT is an evidence based psycho-educational model that takes commitment and application, but it is more fascinating than effort, and is worth every minute.

Okay, good luck!
