Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in Toronto
Do you sometimes feel trapped in your thinking? Do you struggle with life decisions, body image, relationships problems, family conflict, or career stress? Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) might be what you need to tackle your current struggles.
What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based treatment, which means that it has been proven to be effective more often than most other types of therapy.
CBT is a form of therapy that aims to help you identify and modify negative/unrealistic thoughts in order to improve your feelings and behaviours. This is based on the belief that thoughts, feelings, and behaviours are interlinked and that changing one can lead to changes in the others.
CBT can be effective in treating a wide range of issues and concerns, including:
- Anxiety disorders (e.g., generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and phobias)
- Eating disorders
- Sleep problems
- Anger management problems
CBT can also be helpful for individuals who are struggling with relationship problems, stress management, or coping with medical conditions or chronic pain.
Benefits of CBT
There are many potential benefits to CBT, including:
- Greater emotional resilience
- Increased self-awareness and self-understanding
- Enhanced problem-solving and coping skills
- Improved relationships with others
- Increased self-esteem and self-confidence
CBT can also help you develop a more positive and realistic outlook on life and learn new ways of thinking and behaving that can lead to improved mental and emotional well-being.
Overall, the goal of CBT is to help you make positive and lasting changes in your life.
What is there to know about CBT before treatment?
- CBT is action-oriented and involves practicing techniques outside of the sessions.
- CBT therapists are not cheerleaders for positive thinking but the aim is to shift negative thoughts into healthy and realistic ones.
- CBT therapists are active in the sessions, provide direction, offer suggestions and teach skills
It is important to remember that it is necessary to practice the skills and techniques outside of the sessions in order to make progress.
Additionally, one should expect to experience challenging moments throughout the course of treatment as it is normal for change to be uncomfortable.
