Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a short-term, goal-oriented form of psychotherapy that helps people discern the difference between beliefs, thoughts and feelings. CBT is grounded in the belief that it is a person’s perception of events, rather than the events themselves, that determines how an individual will feel and act in response.

CBT can help with:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Phobias
  • Obsessive compulsive disorders (OCD)
  • Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Persistent pain
  • Disordered eating
  • Sexual issues
  • Anger management issues

Most people with clearly defined behavioral and emotional concerns tend to reap benefits 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:

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