Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a practical type of psychotherapy for kids and adults which closely examines the accuracy of thoughts and how they relate to emotion and behavior. Empirical research indicates CBT is an effective psychotherapeutic intervention, is superior to many types of therapies, and in some cases is as effective as psychotropic medication.  It’s useful for treating or managing a broad range of psychological difficulties including anxiety, panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression, habit disorders, anger management, relationship challenges, phobias, trauma, and personality disorders. CBT is also frequently used by individuals who are free of symptoms, but who want to increase confidence, develop new skills in sport or business, or are pursuing self-development in life and relationships.
