Psychotherapist & Meditation Teacher
Feelings are the conscious experience of your emotional reaction. Your feelings arise out of what you think. Your feelings are incredibly powerful and it can seem at times, as though they overtake or control you. Here we discuss the relationship between your thoughts and feelings, and I share helpful cues for how to best understand why you feel the way you do; and how to change how you feel. p.s. There is a lot to take in, in each of these episodes of CBT 'Best Practices', including takeaway strategies and tools that you can immediately apply in your life! Listen with a way to take notes so that you can turn each episode into the change that you seek in your life!

Today, I’m making a conscious effort to interrupted negative thoughts and replace them with positive perspective. Then let’s see what that does for my feelings and eventually my behavior
