Helping individuals to identify and become aware of their behaviour is central to changing problem behaviours. Unplanned actions are often triggered by a chain of events, both internal and external, that the person may or may not be aware of. A cognitive behavioural approach helps people become aware of this process and of the thoughts and feelings linked to unwanted behaviours, through careful self-monitoring. Once identified a variety of strategies can used collaboratively to help people break these unwanted patterns. The ultimate aim is to help clients to develop problem-solving skills and become more expert in identifying their own health behaviour problems, exploring options and planning towards long-term solutions.
