The purpose of the CBT for Procrastination Behaviours course is to help you to learn a range of cognitive, emotive and behavioural techniques so that you can change the patterns of thinking and acting that result in you continually putting off doing what your better judgment tells you should be done now, often with severe consequences for your career, your relationships and your self-esteem.

In this CBT for Overcoming Procrastination programme you will:

  • Begin to break Procrastination Thinking as an automatic habit, through thought monitoring
  • Become more adept at withstanding the emotional drives to retreat from productive pursuits, particularly when reacting to anxiety, fears and unpleasant emotions.
  • Learn to let go of short-term rewards in favour of longer term gains
  • Learn acceptance strategies, leading to a willingness to accept tension, one of the major causes of procrastination.
