Cognitive Behavioral Therapy


Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT is a short-term, form of psychotherapy that focuses on helping people identify thoughts, feelings and behaviors in their experience of the world around them. CBT is grounded in the belief that it is a person’s perception of events – rather than the events themselves – that determines how he or she will feel and act in response. CBT aims to help you identify unhelpful thinking patters, or cognitive errors that get in the way of you reaching your goals.

CBT can help with:

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Panic attacks

  • Phobias

  • Obsessive compulsive disorders (OCD)

  • Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

  • Substance dependency

  • Persistent pain

  • Eating Disorders

  • Sexual issues

  • Anger management issues


Most people with clearly defined behavioral and emotional concerns tend to reap the benefits of CBT. If any of the above issues resonate with you, we encourage you to try cognitive behavioral therapy. With CBT, you’ll be able to adjust the thoughts that directly influence your emotions and behavior. This adjustment process is referred to as cognitive reconstructing, which happens through different CBT techniques.

Some CBT techniques are:

  • Identifying unhelpful thinking patterns

  • Journalling

  • Challenging beliefs

  • Meditation

  • Mindfulness

  • Social, physical and thinking exercises


Cognitive behavioral therapy is much more than sitting and talking about whatever comes to mind during a session. CBT sessions are structured to ensure that the therapist and the person in treatment are focused on the different goals of each session, which in turn ensures that each and every session is productive.
