Course Details

The Socratic Method—often described as the cornerstone of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy gets right to the heart of irrational, fixated thinking that drives unhelpful and harmful behaviours. Socratic questioning is a skill of structured enquiry that targets conscious and unconscious ideas. Put simply, we are able to open up secretly held issues and problems, to uncover assumptions and the deeper beliefs that clients bring to treatment.
