- Cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT) looks at how your thought processes and underlying beliefs create your feelings, actions, and behavior.
- CBT takes a goal-oriented approach to problem solving. By changing the way one thinks, it is possible to change the way one feels.
- CBT is based on the premise that a thought precedes a feeling which in turn impacts your behavior.
- CBT is a structured, interactive form of therapy that is goal oriented and requires homework.
- CBT is research based and can be effective with Anxiety and Depression. CBT seeks to uncover how your patterned thought processes may be affecting any self-destructive or counterproductive behaviors you may have.
- CBT allows you the opportunity to develop constructive thinking patterns that can enhance healthier beliefs and subsequent behaviors. CBT is generally short-term, six months or less.
*For long-standing issues and personality disorders, CBT can be combined with other psychotherapeutic approaches. For more information about these other approaches, please see Psychodynamic, EMDR, and Sandplay therapies on this site.
