Why CBT?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is growing in popularity as an efficient and long standing treatment for a big variety of psychological problems. It’s a highly evidence based psychotherapy based on empirically supported cognitive theories of emotional disorders and has been subjected to rigorous efficacy outcome research in the treatment of a plethora of anxiety disorders such as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)  as well as depression and PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). While psychiatric medications are commonly the first line of treatment, pharmacotherapy might not completely eradicate the symptomatology or causes of the psychological problems.  CBT it’s a challenging, structured, directive, solution focused and empathic type of therapy that helps you to knock your emotional daemons on the head.  Self help assignments are a crucial part of therapeutic process as putting therapy into practise outside therapy will help you to consolidate therapy effects. Actions speaks louder than words and translating new beliefs into actions help you to consolidate healthy emotional responses to others and life.  An often complain I hear from clients is that CBT ignores their past. CBT doesn’t ignore your past; it is interested on how your past is represented in your present by concentrating on how your current thinking and behaviour cause your current emotional difficulties.
