Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT)

Cognitive-behavioural therapy

Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) has been a go-to therapy for a long time. CBT is a type of talk therapy that offers a structured way of challenging negative thinking, we call them cognitive distortions.

Through the process of socratic questioning you will develop a more accurate way of thinking. Its goal is to change patterns of thinking. Change in feeling and behaviour usually follows. CBT works by changing your attitudes and behaviour by focusing on the thoughts, images, beliefs, feelings, bodily sensations.

As a stand-alone therapy Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy is a short-term, goal-oriented psychotherapy treatment that offers a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving. At Modern Therapy we use CBT as a tool for those who want to learn the process of replacing distortions with more rational balanced thoughts and practice it on your own.

CBT is a “problem-focused” form of therapy. CBT focuses directly on your thoughts. The goal of CBT is to help you to become your own therapist. Practicing skills and strategies between sessions is a core component of CBT.
