Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy - CBT
CBT has a large body of empirical support. Emotions, thoughts, and behaviours all influence one another. Further, they often amplify one another resulting in a person feeling overwhelmed. The goal of CBT is to help people to develop skills for healthy thinking and behaviours.
The most important part of therapy is your collaboration. Therapy pace and goals are determined by you. To accomplish your goals a variety of therapy tools may be used, which will be discussed with you. Typically, these include thought records and mood or activity charts. Other tools may be used for more specific problems; for example, graduated exposure for phobias, prolonged exposure for PTSD, and exposure and response prevention for OCD.
