Life is complicated, and at times we need help to overcome roadblocks in our everyday lives. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a life-changing therapy that allows the patient to create helpful coping mechanisms for the personal issues that they are facing, helps them learn how to regulate their emotions, and assists the patient in reexamining false perceptions surrounding their lives and personal relationships.

What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?
Often, depression, anxiety, and other disruptions to mental health can be the result of negative thoughts, life transitions, health issues, and other related issues that can affect life, work, and even friends or family members.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy works to improve one’s perceptions through changes in thoughts and behaviors. Not only can the therapy help to reshape negative perceptions, but it can also assist with regulating emotions so that the individual can react more appropriately in stressful situations. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an action-oriented therapy that concentrates on creating and accomplishing goals that are set by the therapist and patient.
Learned behaviors can often be harmful or disruptive if a patient has developed unhealthy coping mechanisms. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy focuses on establishing personal coping mechanisms that help to resolve existing issues and problems, thereby creating a happier and more stable life for the patient.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is extremely effective for all different types of mental health issues. Rather than focusing on the disorder, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy places a focus on the individual patient. By emphasizing the needs of the individual, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy can help patients to overcome unhelpful coping mechanisms or erroneous perceptions about life and develop healthier behaviors so they can function better in their everyday lives. From depression and anxiety to severe mental illness, alcohol and drug use, and even eating disorders, CBT has proven to be an effective solution for treating patients suffering from many different types of disorders.
