About Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a practical and effective form of psychotherapy that helps individuals gain the skills and strategies they need to live their best lives. CBT focuses on the challenges faced in everyday life and helps people understand the impact of their thoughts and perceptions on their emotions. Some of the key benefits of CBT include:
- A structured and organized approach, making it easy to follow and track progress
- Time-limited treatment, typically taking 6–20 sessions
- A solution-focused and goal-oriented approach, leading to positive change in a relatively short time
- Long-lasting skills and strategies that can be used even after therapy ends
- A collaborative and supportive relationship between the therapist and client

What To Expect
In CBT, you will work with your therapist to identify, question, and change the thoughts, attitudes, and beliefs that contribute to your difficulties. By monitoring and recording your thoughts in real-time, you will come to see how your thinking patterns may be contributing to emotional problems like depression and anxiety. CBT teaches you to:
Recognize distortions in your thinking
See your thoughts as just that—thoughts—and not absolute facts
Take a step back and consider situations from different perspectives.
By engaging in CBT, you’ll gain a better understanding of yourself and the world around you, and feel equipped to handle life’s challenges with greater ease and resilience.
