A little more about Cognitive Distortions:
Often people unknowingly put a negative spin on things - ignoring the positive, dwelling on the negative or using restrictive words like should, always, never. When distorted thinking becomes habitual it gets in the way of our happiness, goals, relationships and connecting with our selves. Distorted thinking literally limits us by limiting our thinking.
So, when we recognize that our clients are using cognitive distortions, it's a great lens through which to challenge or raise the awareness of a client. And that helps them make a shift and make 'positive' changes in their lives.
Cognitive Distortions are recognized as a powerful tool in NLP, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and by coaches, counsellors and therapists everywhere!
