Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT is a form of behavioral treatment that helps people see the difference between beliefs, thoughts, and feelings, and free them from 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 he or she will feel and act in response.
CBT can help with:
- Panic attacks
- Sleep Difficultiees
- Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Chronic pain
- Sexual issues
- Anger management issues
Most people with clearly defined behavioral and emotional concerns tend to benefit from CBT.
With CBT, you’ll be able to adjust the thoughts that directly influence your emotions and behavior. This adjustment process is referred to as cognitive reconstructing, which happens through different CBT techniques.
Some CBT techniques are:
- Examining and Challenging beliefs
- Relaxation Skills
- Social, physical and thinking exercises
Cognitive behavioral therapy is much more than sitting and talking about whatever comes to mind during a session. CBT sessions are structured to ensure that the therapist and the person in treatment are focused on the goals of each session, which in turn ensures that each and every session is productive.
