Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is short-term, goal-oriented psychotherapy focused on problem solving by utilizing the client’s cognitions (thoughts) and behaviors. The basic principle of CBT is that what a person believes affects his or her emotions and behavior. CBT focuses on the interrelationships between thoughts, actions (behaviors), and feelings and the role they play in a person’s symptoms and how they can be changed. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is versatile and can be used within individual, couple or family therapy. Through years of research within the psychotherapy field, a treasure trove of effective CBT tools has been innovated and can be employed within your therapy sessions.
