The Beginner’s Guide to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

What Is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

wellness centerCognitive behavioral therapy is a short-term, goal-oriented treatment plan. Patients participating in CBT at our wellness center typically meet with their psychologist once a week for five to 10 months. In each visit, the doctor and patient work together to identify and modify unhealthy patterns of behavior, thought, attitudes, and beliefs.

Who Qualifies for CBT?

At our wellness center, we use cognitive behavioral therapy to help our patients deal with a myriad of struggles including grief, anxiety, depression, and addiction. Besides specific mental health concerns, CBT can also help with sleeping difficulties, relationship problems, and stress management.

How Can It Help You?

Next time you encounter adversity, note how your inner-self reacts. When you miss a deadline at work, do you tell yourself you’re a failure? Do you insist that your boss hates you? Sometimes these negative thoughts pop up without us even realizing. CBT, however, increases our self-awareness, allowing us to acknowledge these beliefs and view them from a more realistic perspective. It also helps you identify from where these automatic thoughts originate. Finally, with the support of your psychologist, you’ll learn new and healthier ways to cope with troubles not only at work but also at home, school, and beyond.

If you’re interested in receiving CBT, call our wellness center at (808) 535-5555 today. For more on our psychological services as well as our clinic’s favorite health and wellness tips, visit Manakai O Malama online.
