• Identify the irrational or unhelpful belief or thought.

• Ask yourself where this belief or thought comes from.

• Ask yourself where the evidence or proof is that confirms this belief or thought. Is the proof enough?

• Consider how this thought or belief has impacted on your life.

• Ask yourself if the way this thought or belief makes you feel is how you want to feel.

• If this thought or belief is irrational or unhelpful, replace it with a new, realistic and helpful thought or belief.

• Repeat the new thought or belief to reinforce it.
