Psychotherapy » Cognitive Behavioral Therapy


Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) can help you to think differently about your experiences and your relationships, with the goal of making some positive changes in your life. CBT is based on the idea that how we think, how we feel, and how we act are all closely related.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy  is a form of psychotherapy that addresses the way individuals experience situations and their reactions. CBT attempts to help the client change unhelpful and negative thinking and behavior. CBT therapists work with patients to help them disclose, examine and adjust their own thought patterns and responses. According to CBT professionals, our thoughts and our responses to our thoughts are actually what cause our perceptions and govern our behaviors. The CBT therapist helps the client develop personal coping strategies that replace unhelpful thinking patterns and behaviors. This time-sensitive, structured, and present-oriented psychotherapy differs from psychoanalysis in the sense that it doesn’t focus on childhood wounds and instead focuses on solutions and emphasizes problem solving.


Cognitive behavioral therapy is often conducted on a one-on-one basis with one of our therapist, but it can also be conducted in a group setting. In CBT, patients break down their problems into smaller parts so that they can identify the thoughts, feelings, and beliefs that lead to unwanted behaviors.

The logic behind CBT a bit like this: your thoughts and beliefs about a situation or event in your life can affect how you feel about it emotionally, which in turn affects how you behave in response. Recognizing those thoughts and beliefs can allow you to modify them in ways that support healthier, more productive and positive behavior.
