I have been working with a client who has been a victim of sexual abuse, and when she came to therapy, she felt a failure. So, she holds this image about herself that is a damaged person, that she's a failure and she doesn't deserve anything in life. So, after employing CBT treatment, we managed to break down these negative cognitions about herself, and tried to see if there is any factual evidence that can support her cognitive processing. So, during the CBT process, we identified a lot of positive things about her, rather than negative things about her, so we managed, actually, to establish a more balanced way of thinking around that. So, when she said, "I'm a failure", as an example, I asked her, like, "Okay, what kind of evidence do you have about this?" And, generally, she had a very successful life. She was someone with quite perfectionistic standards, and probably these got in the way. Her standards were very unrelenting, you can say. So, yeah, so by doing this processing of the cognitive restructuring, trying to find evidence for and evidence against something, we managed to establish an alternative belief about herself.
