Thinking Errors & How To Change Them

What are thinking errors, how do they affect me and what can I do about it?

Most people won’t spend much time mulling over the pros and cons of the way that they think, but if you do want to change something about yourself that seems to be out of your control, then it might be a good idea!

One of most important things that you can learn about yourself is that your thoughts, attitudes and beliefs have the most significant impact on the way that you interpret the world around you and how you feel about what’s going on.

If you feel excessively bad than the chances are that you are thinking ‘badly’, or as we say, in an unhelpful way.

Most people don’t deliberately think like this and in most cases will be unaware that this is what’s going on!

Thinking Errors are ‘slips’ in your thinking that everybody makes from time to time and in the same way that ‘spurious’ programmes on your computer make your computer run slowly or inaccurately, thinking errors limit your ability to make an ‘accurate’ assessment of your own experiences.

Thinking errors can lead you to:

  • Get the wrong end of the stick
  • Jump to conclusions
  • Assume the worst

and effectively get ‘in the way’ leading to ‘distortions’ of what is actually happening or has happened.

The good news is that no matter how long you have had your thinking errors, you can always change them through the process of evaluation and modification.

Common Thinking Errors

Here we list the most common (but not necessarily ALL) thinking errors that we encounter with our clients:

Most of us will recognise at least some of these thinking errors as things we do everyday, but by learning to identify these ‘thinking styles’ in our everyday experience we give ourselves the chance to take affirmative action by learning the tools and techniques to change them.

If you’d like to learn how to identify and then change your own thinking errors, then don’t hesitate to get in touch to arrange an initial consultation with us to discuss the options available.

Alternative Therapy Options for Thinking Errors

Although our preferred form of psychotherapy for Thinking Errors is Tranceformental CBT we also offer alternative psychotherapies for those who might prefer a different approach.

These include:

  • Psychodynamic therapy which focuses more on emotional problems and relies on the Therapeutic Relationship to bring about change. Available with Paul.
  • General Counselling which is less structured but still provides a safe and non-judgmental environment to discuss issues which is therapeutic in its own right.
  • Hypnotherapy is an alternative form of therapy that can be applied to a very wide range of problems and is available with Joan.
