CBT or Cognitive Behavioral Theory is a type of therapy that addresses cognitions (thoughts), emotions (feelings) and behaviours (actions). CBT is an evidence based therapy proven to be effective in helping to restructure our negative thinking patterns which affect how we feel (both mentally and physically) and the actions we take. Cognitive restructuring can increase how you react to certain situations, or to certain people. It can also improve our self-esteem, manage more effectively our depression and anxiety, or in most cases actually dissipate symptoms completely.
CBT has been proven to be one of the most effective treatments for many issues such as grief & loss, depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), substance abuse, addiction and bipolar.
