What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)?

CBT focuses on how thoughts, beliefs and attitudes impact feelings and behaviors. This psychotherapeutic approach teaches and helps you practice coping skills that will help you to deal with different problems. This method is based on the idea that the way we think about situations affects the way we feel and behave. CBT aims to ameliorate psychological concerns by helping clients develop appropriate thoughts and behaviors.

Negative thinking patterns can start from childhood onwards. Over time, you might come to believe these assumptions, until they become automatic and affect how you feel at work, school, and generally in your life. If these negative interpretations of situations remain unchallenged, they turn into a vicious and continuous cycle of thinking, feeling, and behaving.
