In this exploration, guided by the expertise of our esteemed guest, Dr. Yewande Olamide, we delve into the fundamental principles and versatile applications of CBT.

At its core, CBT emerges as a dynamic and goal-oriented psychotherapy, unveiling the intricate web of negative thought patterns and behaviours that often obscure our minds. Dr. Olamide illuminates the versatility of CBT, extending its efficacy beyond depression to encompass a spectrum of mental health disorders—from anxiety and phobias to insomnia, self-esteem issues, parenting challenges, relationship struggles, and burnout.

Dr. Olamide introduces a practical framework within CBT—the 3 R’s: Remind, Reduce, and Reward. This approach empowers individuals to form new habits by creating cues, simplifying tasks, and providing positive reinforcement. It’s a transformative tool to navigate the journey toward lasting change.

  • Remind: Establish cues or triggers that prompt desired habits.
  • Reduce: Break down habits into manageable components, reducing perceived effort.
  • Reward: Celebrate successes with a positive reinforcement system, strengthening the connection between habit and accomplishment.
