Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

During the 1960 Aaron Beck developed a counseling therapy known as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is a form of psychotherapy which involves working with both cognition (thought) and behavior (action) and it has been successfully used to manage various conditions like chronic stress, anxiety, mood disorders, addiction and obsessive compulsive disorders. CBT helps to unearth negative thinking patterns so that when difficult situations arise the individual may choose to react and respond to them in a different way.

What can I expect from the session ?

During the sessions, you will work with the practitioner to break down your problems into their separate parts – such as your thoughts, physical feelings and actions. You and the practitioner will analyses these problem areas to work out if they are unrealistic or unhelpful and to determine the effect they have on each other and on you. Your practitioner will provide methods that will support you in changing unhelpful thoughts and behaviors. The eventual aim of therapy is to teach you to apply the skills you have learnt during treatment to your daily life. This should help you manage your problems and stop them having a negative impact on your life – even after your course of treatment finishes.

How many sessions will I need?

Usually you may have a session with a practitioner once a week or once every two weeks. The course of treatment will usually last for between 5 and 20 sessions, with each session lasting 30-60 minutes.
