  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

    Several of our Therapists are trained in the use of CBT therapy techniques.

    It’s a type of psychotherapy that focuses on the connection between our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. The main goal of CBT is to help individuals identify and change negative or unhelpful patterns of thinking and behavior.

    CBT is an evidence based therapy, in which our thoughts and beliefs influence our emotions and actions. By identifying and challenging negative thoughts, CBT aims to help individuals develop healthier and more adaptive ways of thinking. This, in turn, can lead to positive changes in behavior and overall well-being.

    CBT is often used to treat a variety of mental health conditions, such as anxiety disorders, depression, and phobias. It can also be helpful in managing stress, improving communication skills, and enhancing problem-solving abilities.

    During CBT sessions, individuals work closely with a therapist to identify and understand their negative thought patterns. The therapist helps them challenge these thoughts and develop more realistic and positive alternatives. This process often involves setting specific goals, learning new coping strategies, and practicing new behaviors.

    One of the key advantages of CBT is its focus on the present and the practical nature of its techniques. It emphasizes active participation and encourages individuals to apply what they learn in therapy to their daily lives. This can lead to long-lasting changes and improved overall mental well-being.
