COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a widely used form of psychotherapy that focuses on the connection between a person’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is a goal-oriented approach that aims to help individuals understand and change negative patterns of thinking and behavior that contribute to their difficulties.
The underlying principle of CBT is that our thoughts and beliefs about ourselves, others, and the world around us can influence our emotions and behaviors. CBT suggests that by identifying and challenging unhelpful or irrational thoughts, people can develop healthier and more adaptive ways of thinking, leading to improved emotional well-being and more effective problem-solving.
