Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an effective intervention that lasts. The American Psychological Association (APA) recommends CBT as a first line of treatment in a range of mental health difficulties. The APA notes that CBT offers continuing protection against relapse
after the termination of therapy, unlike many other therapies and medications.
CBT helps people understand the relationship between their thoughts, behaviour, physiology, and emotions.
CBT has demonstrated effectiveness for the following Conditions:
– Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
– Panic Attacks
– Social Anxiety
– Adult ADHD
– Disordered Eating
– Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
How does it work?
– CBT is a collaborative process. We work together to try different strategies and determine whether or not they work for you.
– CBT is evidence based. It is grounded in research and has been proven to be effective.
– CBT is goal oriented. By being goal oriented, we can ensure that we are working productively and efficiently.
– CBT requires clients to practice exercises outside of the therapy session. By doing this, we are able to actively determine what works
and may not work for you.
– Many clients experience improvement in a time-limited amount of time (10-20 sessions).
We believe in a lot of the tools that CBT can offer us as therapists. We also believe that each client is unique, and some may have had CBT in the past and did not find that it worked for them.
This is why we offer Mindfulness, Solution-Focused therapy, in addition to neurofeedback to ensure that we are utilizing a vast array of techniques to help you best!!! We promise to pull techniques from an eclectic background to best help you reach your full potential.
