Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a popular form of therapy today. It can be described as a theoretical orientation that takes into account the behavioural and cognitive aspects of a client and applies interventions and solutions that work to reframe thoughts and alter unwanted behaviours. CBT has been shown to work effectively for a wide variety of disorders such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, eating disorders, and substance use. CBT is also known to work effectively in many cultural contexts and is easily adapted to client needs.

In CBT, the goal is for the client and therapist to work together to create solutions and understand the problem. The client is being taught to become their own therapist and learn to cope with adversity using the skill they have been taught. CBT will work to help you identify emotions, thoughts and behaviours and learn skills or strategies to create a better quality of life. It can also be effective within a short treatment window and have long-lasting effects if clients work to maintain what they have gained through therapy.
