What is cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)?
This therapy reduces mental suffering and improves symptoms through new learnings. It uses practical and validated techniques that are focused on the present. It is a therapy where the objectives are clear, precise, attainable and defined by the client.
This therapy is indicated for every person motivated to change; both for adults and for teenagers and children.
Cognitive-behavioural therapy is indicated for all types of psychological suffering, such as depression, self-esteem, anxiety, addictions, phobias, compulsive behaviours, obsessive thoughts, sleeping difficulties, eating difficulties, etc.
The treatment process is based on a collaborative work between the therapist and the client; and is focused on current or more recent problems. The process includes a phase of investigation of situations related to the problem, the emotions, the thoughts, the behaviours and their consequences. Then, an evaluation phase is carried out, to then move on to the treatment phase in which therapeutic techniques are practiced through the performance of exercises during the sessions, as well as in the daily life of the client in order to develop new learnings.
