Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT is a short-term, problem-focused form of behavioral treatment.

CBT is grounded in the belief that it is a person’s cognitive perception of events – rather than the events themselves – that determines how he or she will feel and act in response. Therapy can help you change your beliefs and cognitions, thus freeing you from a perspective that undermines your self-confidence and happiness.

CBT can help with:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Phobias or fears
  • Anger management issues
  • Stressful relationship breakups

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:

  • Journaling
  • Challenging beliefs
  • Relaxation
  • Meditation
  • Mindfulness
  • Social, physical and thinking exercises
