What is CBT

CBT is a short-term (16 to 20 sessions) therapy that emphasizes the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. This type of therapy focuses on the relationship between a person’s thoughts, behaviours, and feelings and the role that they play in a person’s symptoms, daily functioning and quality of life. By focusing on these three components, changes can be made in how a person thinks, acts and feels about his or her difficulties. The basic principle of CBT is that how a person thinks has a powerful effect on his or her emotions and behaviours. The goal of CBT therapy is to teach you that while you cannot control the world around you, you can take control of how you interpret and deal with things in your environment.

Research studies have shown that CBT is an effective treatment for a wide range of psychological problems and symptoms including anxiety, depression, eating disorders and insomnia. Cognitive behavioural therapy also helps in teaching you stress management and relaxation techniques. Pet scan studies that have looked at people’s brains before and after treatment have shown that engaging in CBT treatment can have a profound positive effect on your brain activity. This suggests that the brain is actually improving its functioning because of this treatment.
