Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Do you experience frequent, negative thoughts that interfere with your ability to focus, sleep, relate to others, or even enjoy life?
Do you want support in navigating a stressful life situation or relationships?
Or perhaps you are seeking help in identifying more effective ways to cope with life’s challenges?
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of therapy that examines and aims to change one’s unhelpful thoughts and behaviors in order to change their emotions. This approach was developed in the 1960s by psychiatrist Aaron Beck. Since its development, significant evidence has amassed to support its effectiveness in treating many conditions, such as:
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder
- Anger management
- Eating disorders
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Sleep issues
- Substance use
CBT will allow you to:
- Identify problem areas in your life
- Become aware of the connection between your thoughts, emotions, and beliefs about these issues and how this impacts your behavior, and
- Challenge negative or inaccurate thinking patterns to arrive at a more balanced mental state
- Develop improved skills in problem solving, stress management, and confronting difficult situations.
A person does not necessarily have to be suffering with a mental health disorder to gain substantial benefit from this type of counseling.
CBT can also be utilized with individuals of all ages, ranging from children and adolescents to adults. (See CBT for children and teens).
