Acquiring tools to correct maladaptive thoughts by understanding the beliefs and emotions effecting them
In Cognitive Behavioral Therapy the underlying approach is that thoughts, emotions, and behaviors are related and each influences the other.
CBT helps people find relief for many conditions by heightening awareness of any thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that cause distress. As a result, people can develop more rational and thoughtful ways to approach their issues. CBT is an empirically-proven approach that treats such mood disorders as depression and bipolar disorder, and such anxiety disorders as phobias, social anxiety, panic attacks, and obsessive-compulsiveness.
CBT is often time-limited and focuses on specific goals which you and I will develop together. Homework is an essential part of the therapy, as you need to practice newly-learned skills to integrate them.
