Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on examining the relationship between one’s thoughts, feelings and behaviors. This approach focuses on changing one’s belief system (cognitive processes) and related behavior, attitudes and way of coping with emotional difficulties. CBT is an evidence-based, short-term, and solution-focused treatment approach with the goal of reducing symptoms while increasing adaptive coping and assertiveness. CBT has been found effective in treating a myriad of conditions such as mood disorders, anxiety disorders, personality disorders, relationship problems, sleeping difficulties and adjustment to health related conditions among others.
