It helps you learn to recognise your codependent patterns and behaviours.

In a codependent relationship, you tend to put your partner’s needs before your own. Even when they don’t ask for help, you might still give it without realising that you’re doing so. If this sounds like something that could describe your relationship with someone else (or maybe even yourself), then CBT might be a good option for you.

Codependency Behavioural Therapy can help you understand how your behaviour affects others around you and how it makes them feel—and vice versa. It’s important to note that the goal of CBT isn’t necessarily to change everything about who you are or what kind of relationships work best for you; instead, it aims to help people become more aware of their actions so they can make healthier choices in their lives moving forward.

By learning new coping skills and reinforcing them with positive feedback, you can improve your ability to manage codependent feelings.

It’s important to give yourself positive feedback as you learn new skills. You can reward yourself with a small gift or treat once you’ve successfully mastered a technique. This will help reinforce the new behaviour, which will make it easier for you to perform in the future.

If you’re learning about codependency behaviour therapy and want to implement what you’re learning into your life, here are some steps for giving yourself positive feedback:

  • Identify what went well—What did I do that helped me succeed? Why did that work? How can I repeat this success in the future?
  • Then reward yourself—Buy something special or take time out of your schedule just for fun! You deserve it!

Focusing on your needs rather than constantly trying to fix the other person in your relationship can help you build healthier relationships.

  • You can’t control other people’s feelings or problems.
  • You can only change yourself.


The skills you learn through CBT may help you to cope with other mental health concerns as well, such as depression or anxiety.

It’s important to note that even if you don’t have the benefit of a CBT therapist, you can still use many of its techniques on your own. For example, if you’re feeling anxious about a situation in which you’re expected to speak in front of a group, try practising deep breathing for several minutes before heading out. This will help calm your nerves and reduce the likelihood that anxiety will interfere with speaking well.

Another skill commonly found in CBT therapy is called exposure therapy: forcing yourself to face something that makes you uncomfortable so that eventually it becomes less scary over time. For example, if public speaking makes you really nervous, one strategy would be preparing for an upcoming presentation by giving multiple practice speeches at home (or wherever else feels safe). By gradually increasing these chances of exposure—whether it’s through more practice or performing live—you’ll eventually become less afraid and be able to handle situations like talking in front of people more easily with less anxiety or stress.

Codependency-focused behavioural therapy can help you identify unhealthy patterns of behaviour and replace them with healthy coping skills.

Codependency-focused behavioural therapy can help you identify unhealthy patterns of behaviour and replace them with healthy coping skills. CBT is a type of psychotherapy that focuses on the ways your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours interact with each other. The goal is to help you understand how your own thoughts and actions affect your moods and emotions. You can then make conscious decisions about how much control over the situation you want to have at any given time.
