Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a shorter-term, problem-focused form of treatment that helps people notice the difference between their thoughts, feelings, and beliefs and works toward freeing them from undesirable patterns of behavior.

CBT can help with:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Phobias
  • Obsessive compulsive disorders (OCD)
  • Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Chronic pain
  • Eating disorders
  • Anger management

Most people with clearly defined behavioral and emotional concerns tend to notice the benefits of CBT fairly soon after beginning therapy. With CBT, you’ll be able to learn skills that 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:

  • Journalling
  • Challenging beliefs
  • Relaxation
  • Meditation/Mindfulness
  • 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  goals of each session, which in turn ensures that each session feels productive. You may be assigned homework in between sessions which include small activities to try or skills to practice.
