Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy that focuses on the relationship between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is based on the idea that our thoughts and beliefs influence our emotions and behaviors, and that we can change our emotions and behaviors by changing our thoughts and beliefs.
CBT is a structured and time-limited form of therapy that involves working with a therapist to identify negative or irrational thoughts and beliefs, and to replace them with more realistic and positive ones. The therapist may also help the client to learn new coping skills and behaviors to manage difficult situations and emotions.
CBT is a widely used and evidence-based treatment for a variety of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, phobias, eating disorders, and substance abuse. It is typically a short-term treatment that involves weekly sessions, with the goal of helping the client to become their own therapist and continue using the skills learned in therapy to manage their symptoms and maintain their progress over the long term.
