Frequently Asked Questions

What Does A CBT Therapist Do During CBT?

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a robust, evidence-based therapy approach that examines the relationship between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Patients are taught to become aware of ineffective thinking patterns and behaviors so that they can develop more realistic thinking and better ways of handling challenges.

What is CBT and How Does It Work?

– Therapists work collaboratively with patients to develop clearly outlined goals and track progress
– Help patients recognize their ineffective thought patterns and develop more balanced thinking and adaptive behaviors
– Develop improved relationships by gaining insight into the behavior and motivations of others
– Develop effective problem-solving skills to face life’s challenges
– Increase self-confidence
– The ultimate goal is to provide patients with a set of skills to become their own therapists

Should I Do CBT On My Own?

Ultimately the goal is to learn generalizable skills in order to do CBT on your own and become your own therapist. Studies have shown that self-help is moderately effective. However, other studies have shown that CBT with a psychologist tends to be more effective than self-help alone. Therapists can provide both safety and objectivity to assist in properly applying the skills.
