Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
The focus with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is on how your thoughts and emotions affect what you do.
CBT helps you see the difference between beliefs, thoughts, and feelings, and free yourself from unhelpful patterns of behavior that are led by limiting beliefs.
CBT is grounded in the idea that your perception of situations – rather than the situations themselves – determine how you will feel and act in response in those situations.
Here’s what CBT helps you with:
- Panic attacks
- Obsessive compulsive disorders (OCD)
- Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Substance dependency
- Persistent pain
- Eating disorders
- Sexual issues
- Anger management issues
With CBT, you’ll be able to change the thoughts that directly control your emotions and behavior. This process of change is called cognitive reconstructing, which happens through using different CBT techniques.
Some CBT techniques are:
- Journaling about your thoughts and emotions
- Disputing self-defeating beliefs learned in childhood/ adolescence
- Creating a new understanding to change unhelpful thinking patterns
CBT sessions are structured and focus on different goals during each session, which in turn ensures that every session is productive, getting you closer to your goal of being your best self.
