About Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is treatment that combines cognitive therapy (examining how we think) and behavioral therapy (examining the things we do) to help us find positive solutions to situations that interfere with our family, work or social lives and seem overwhelming.
The idea behind CBT is that our perception of events — rather than the events themselves — determines how we will feel and act. For example, if we spend a lot of time thinking about plane crashes and air disasters, we will probably avoid traveling by air, rational or not.
While we can’t control everything around us, cognitive behavioral therapy can teach us how to counsel ourselves to a more rational, confident way of thinking.
Cognitive behavioral therapy can help you:
- Reverse negative thought patterns
- Challenge long-held inaccurate beliefs
- Calmly address fears
- Deal with stress appropriately
- Boost self-esteem
- Improve personal relationships
- Participate proactively in activities
- Break away from the cycle of defeat
At Green Physique, we work with our clients to help them replace negative thoughts and behaviors with more productive thoughts and actions in order to decrease emotional distress and self-defeating behavior.
Cognitive behavioral therapy involves learning and practicing techniques such as relaxation, coping, resilience, stress management and assertiveness. The coping skills you learn can help you manage and conquer negative feelings and fears.
Treatment can be done in one-to-one sessions or in groups with other people in similar situations. When treatment ends, clients can continue applying the skills and tools they’ve learned in therapy to their day-to-day lives.
