Cognitive behavioral therapy, also known as CBT, is a talking therapy that can assist in managing personal problems. By changing the way one thinks and behaves, CBT aims to rid our clients of the repetitive negative thoughts patterns which can leave them feeling trapped. CBT sessions usually take place for 30 or 60 minutes, weekly or bi-weekly, for between 5 and 20 sessions.
The therapist will encourage the client to break down their feelings, their thoughts, and their actions. Any feelings, thoughts, or actions that are not helpful to their recovery journey will be analyzed, and the therapist can advise the client on how to rid themselves of those things. Our clients will learn skills and practical tools from their therapist, in hopes that they will apply them to their daily life and see the results.
