Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is considered to be the most effective and most widely used talk therapy. It has shown significant results in the treatment of anxiety disorders. It works through the modification of dysfunctional emotions and behaviors.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Expectations

Cognitive therapy focuses on both challenging and changing the cognitive distortions and behaviors typically found with anxiety disorders. Once identified, the therapist helps you to develop new coping strategies that solve both immediate and long term problems and improve your emotional regulation of your response to those problems.

Anxiety disorders are signaled by panic attacks, obsessive behaviors, and crippling phobias. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy strives to:

  • Uncover underlying causes that trigger these responses
  • Help you look at situations more realistically
  • Help you learn how to relax
  • Develop better coping skills
  • Learn better problem solving skills

What Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Can Treat

The basic premise is that our thoughts affect the way that we feel. Since it serves to identify negative thoughts, challenge those thoughts, and replace them with realistic thoughts, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy effectively treats:

  • Anxiety
  • Obsessive –Compulsive Disorder
  • Eating Disorders
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

How Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Can Help

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is the most popular and effective type of talk therapy. While talk therapy alone allows the patient to examine themselves, applying Cognitive Behavioral practices gives the patient the tools for the future.

Unlike the more traditional psychotherapy based on Freudian teachings, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is based on the patient’s own emotions and thoughts without searching for more stereotypical causes. Instead, causes that are brought to the surface are based on thoughts and behaviors that can actually be changed pretty easily.

Due to the realism of it, this therapy is more easily accepted by the patient. When recommendations from the therapist not only make sense but can be agreed upon by both therapist and patient, they can be more effectively adopted and adapted to everyday life.

Once you can rid your life of undesirable behaviors, you are one step closer to total mind and body health and wellness.
