What is Cognitive Behaviorial Therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapeutic treatment that helps people learn how to identify and change destructive or disturbing thought patterns that have a negative influence on behavior and emotions.

Cognitive behavioral therapy focuses on changing the automatic negative thoughts that can contribute to and worsen emotional difficulties, depression, and anxiety. These spontaneous negative thoughts have a detrimental influence on mood.

Through CBT, these thoughts are identified, challenged, and replaced with more objective, realistic thoughts.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) helps you learn to change your thoughts, feelings and behaviors so you feel better.  By targeting your reactions to situations, CBT can help you react more effectively in difficult situations, and even learn to feel better when you are unable to change the situations that occur around you.
