cognitive behavioral therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT, is a structured approach aimed at uncovering thought patterns and habits that impact our quality of life. In CBT, therapists collaborate with clients to identify and understand both overarching themes and specific issues, setting and achieving goals together.

CBT sheds light on thinking patterns and perspectives that may negatively affect our wellbeing, offering a clear and objective lens for reshaping habits and beliefs. This goal-oriented talk therapy facilitates meaningful progress within a relatively short timeframe and is often combined with other treatments for enhanced effectiveness.

While challenging situations naturally induce stress, our perceptions and resulting actions can significantly alter how we feel and function. CBT recognizes the role of cognitions (beliefs), thoughts, and behaviors in shaping our experiences. By equipping us with skills, awareness, and confidence, CBT enables us to reevaluate and modify thinking patterns, motivations, and actions, thus freeing us from limiting beliefs and facilitating personal growth.
