Cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy (CBT) is the most widespread evidence-based psychotherapy for improving mental health. CBT focuses on developing coping strategies aimed at solving current problems, changing dysfunctional thinking patterns, changing maladaptive behaviors, and also helping with emotional regulation.
IS PSYCHOTHERAPY FOR ME?
Yes, if you have identified a problem and would like to solve it in a structured way.
HOW IT WORKS?
Cognitive-behavioral therapy interventions follow a clear treatment protocol. The psychotherapist will adapt the interventions, that have been shown to be effective, to your specific needs. Psychotherapy involves identifying the problem and its causes, eliminating the factors that maintain it, identifying your strengths and building coping strategies. The psychotherapist will discuss your thinking patterns and demonstrate how they influence the way you feel or behave. During psychotherapy you will learn methods of examining perceptions and the most common cognitive distortions (logic errors) and you will learn to develop adaptive behavioral patterns.
WHY IS COGNITIVE-BEHAVIORAL PSYCHOTHERAPY RECOMMENDED?
Research on the effectiveness of cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy has shown that it is an extremely effective treatment, and is currently the most studied form of psychotherapy with the best results.
WILL I BE BETTER?
It is normal to want to know what your future holds. It is practically impossible not to learn something from participating in psychotherapy sessions.
