Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT is a therapy that combines cognitive and behavioral elements to help differentiate among beliefs, thoughts, and feelings, and free people from unhelpful thought patterns and unhelpful patterns of behavior.
CBT is grounded in the belief that it is a person’s perception of events – rather than the events themselves – that determines how they will feel and act in response.
CBT can help with many issues, including:
- Panic attacks
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Substance dependency
- Persistent pain
- Disordered eating
Most people with clearly defined behavioral and emotional concerns tend to reap the benefits of CBT. If any of the above issues resonate with you, we encourage you to try cognitive behavioral therapy.
Some CBT techniques are:
- Challenging beliefs and behaviors
- Social, physical and thinking exercises
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy sessions are structured to ensure that the therapist and the person in treatment are focused on the different goals of each session, which in turn ensures that each and every session is productive. CBT also involves homework at each session.
