Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of therapy that helps people change the way they think about and react to situations. CBT is based on the idea that our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are all interconnected. If we can change the way we think about a situation, we can also change the way we feel about it and the way we act.

CBT is a short-term therapy, usually lasting 12-20 sessions. In CBT, the therapist and the client work together to identify the client’s negative thoughts and behaviors. The therapist then helps the client to develop more positive thoughts and behaviors. CBT can be helpful for a variety of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, and eating disorders.

Here are some of the key principles of CBT:

  • Thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are all interconnected. If we can change the way we think about a situation, we can also change the way we feel about it and the way we act.
  • Negative thoughts and behaviors can be learned and unlearned. If we have learned to think negatively about ourselves or the world, we can also learn to think more positively.
  • Therapy can help us to identify and change our negative thoughts and behaviors. With the help of a therapist, we can learn to identify the negative thoughts and behaviors that are causing us problems. We can then learn to replace these negative thoughts and behaviors with more positive ones.

CBT is a well-researched and effective form of therapy. It has been shown to be effective for a variety of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, and eating disorders. If you are struggling with a mental health condition, CBT may be a good option for you.
