What is CBT?
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a method of psychotherapy that is led by a licensed therapist. Here, your therapist will help you identify negative thoughts and their origin. They will also ask you to question and reflect on the reasoning behind these thoughts. CBT counselling is also often used to help patients who are struggling with anxiety and depression.
The overall goal of CBT counselling is to help patients change thinking patterns and see the difference between personal beliefs, thoughts, and feelings. It is also used to help patients break negative behavioral patterns. Your therapist will provide you with methods of achieving, this, some being:
- Challenging beliefs
- Social, physical, and thinking exercises
