Cognitive behavioural Therapy

It’s called “cognitive behavioral” therapy because the treatment approach  is composed of two main areas — changing your cognitions, or thoughts, and changing your behaviors.

CBT is a short-term form of psychotherapy directed at present-time issues. The focus is on problem solving, and the goal is to change clients' thought patterns in order to change their responses to difficult situations. A CBT approach can be applied to a wide range of mental health issues and conditions and can be applied in individual or in group therapy.
