Cognitive Therapy Techniques Work!
Cognitive therapy techniques provide clear structure and focus to treatment. Unlike therapies that easily drift off into interesting but unproductive side trips, CBT sticks to the point and changes course only when there are sound reasons for doing so.
CBT is very practical this is why it works. It helps people see the truth in what they are thinking and find balance with there emotions. It is not easy to sort this out. Would you like to book a time for support?
Sessions are driven by the client as a therapist I need to follow where the client wants to go and then give practical ways to deal with emotion.
What else is different about cognitive therapy techniques?
Change is targeted. We focus on the now not a lot from the past. We look at how the past relates to the now and deal with the emotions in the now.
Past vs. present and future
What brings change?
The two most powerful levers of constructive change are these . . . Shifting ways of thinking — a person’s thoughts, beliefs, ideas, attitudes, assumptions,.
Helping a person greet the challenges in their life with a clear and calm mind — and then taking actions that are likely to have desirable results. This is the behavioral aspect of cognitive therapy techniques.
In other words, CBT focuses on exactly what other therapies tend to leave out — how to achieve beneficial change, as opposed to mere explanation or “insight
CBT has been researched to be effective. In many study’s, it has been shown to be as effective as drugs in treating both depression and anxiety.
In particular, CBT has been shown to be better than drugs in avoiding treatment failures.
I have been teaching CBT fro over 25 years and know that it works.
The truth does set us free!
