Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy? 

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy – it is evidence-based for a reason!

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a broad treatment approach in psychotherapy and counselling that focuses on your perceptions, emotions, and thought process regarding yourself in the world. The CBT model of treatment includes analyzing the interactions between thoughts, feelings, emotions and behaviours. CBT in counselling emphasizes an active participation between the therapist and client, that involves understanding and challenging those negative thoughts that keep getting you stuck. 

CBT is often understood as a transdiagnostic treatment approach – that means, it can target many mental health concerns. CBT has an extensive evidence base, and has been proven effective when applied to many psychological concerns. 

What issues can CBT treat? 

Depression and Mood Disorders

Anxiety Disorders

Panic and Anxiety Attacks

Low Self Esteem / Self Confidence

Stress and Overwhelm

How can Cognitive Behavioural Therapy help me? 

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can help you restore balance in your thoughts, improve emotional state (or, “feeling good, feeling better”), and help you integrate more positive behaviours into your life. Many individuals who receive treatment with CBT report improvement in their relationship with themselves, others, and the world. Whether you are in Edmonton, Calgary, Red Deer, Vancouver, Kelowna, or rural Alberta or British Columbia, cognitive behavioural therapy can help you overcome the negative thoughts and emotions that are holding you back from engaging in life.
