CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy)

CBT is one of the most popular approaches to psychotherapy because it is very action-oriented, meaning the client is able to implement techniques/skills right away and see immediate results.

CBT stands for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and it is a type of psychotherapy that integrates cognition (thoughts and ideas), behaviours, emotions and learning. Treatment aims to modify the client’s maladaptive thought processes and problematic behaviours. CBT does not eliminate the core issues or experiences through which the client acquired the behaviour (defense mechanisms, cognitive distortions, etc.) but it does help modify the way in which he/she interacts with thoughts, triggers and the world in general.
