Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in the office, as well as via phone or Skype. CBT teaches you how to change patterns in your thinking that may be causing anxiety, depression or stress.
Many people are unaware that thoughts actually create feelings. It follows then, that those same people have little awareness of the way they are thinking. They may realize they tend to wax a bit negative from time to time. However, there are certain specific thought patterns that are very common in our culture and rather than relieve a troubling situation, they tend only to make matters worse.
If you knew that changing a pattern of thinking could change your emotional experience, would you be willing to be more intentional and conscious with respect to your thinking? It might be easier not to be so hard on yourself, or to feel badly about tending to see the glass half empty. After all, its not personal, its a cognitive process!
CBT has many advantages in the realm of counseling and psychotherapy. Insurance companies understand the merits of cognitive behavioral therapy because its efficacy is based in research and evidence. The National Center for Biotechnology Information recently published a review that summarizes the plethora of data regarding CBT as an effective way to treat anxiety disorders including panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder. The review concludes, “ Overall, CBT demonstrates both efficacy in randomized controlled trials and effectiveness in naturalistic settings in the treatment of adult anxiety disorders.”
