How does CBT therapy work?

You and I work together as a team. It’s a collaborative process towards making your desired changes. Your experiences and insights guide the process. You will learn to identify the patterns of thinking that might be causing you distress. Here are the steps:

Learn to identify thoughts.

The process begins with recognizing and noticing negative or unhelpful thought patterns. This may involve paying attention to automatic or recurring thoughts in response to certain situations.


Evaluate your thinking.

Once identified, these thoughts are challenged. Are thoughts based on evidence, or are they distorted perceptions? You will learn to assess the accuracy and helpfulness of these thoughts.


Respond to unhelpful thinking.

After your negative beliefs are identified and evaluated, you will learn to replace them with more balanced and realistic alternatives. This doesn’t mean overly positive thinking but rather developing a more objective and constructive perspective.

An example of CBT therapy in action.

Imagine you’re grappling with a negative belief that has been holding you back for years: “I’ll never succeed; I always fail.” This thought is like a heavy anchor, dragging down your motivation and self-esteem.

You will learn to evaluate your beliefs. For example, is there evidence to suggest that you will always fail? Is that thought 100% true?

CBT encourages you to ask the following question: “Is there another way to look at the situation?”

You will discover the factors that have been contributing to your beliefs about failure. After that, you will learn to develop a more balanced perception, such as “I have faced challenges before, but I’ve also achieved success in various areas. I am able to face challenges and keep on going.”

I will help you in every step of the way. If you’re ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery, learn practical skills, and make desired changes, call today and make an appointment.

CBT helps you learn to rewire the brain for more adaptive thoughts and responses.

Discover the science behind CBT therapy.

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is grounded in scientific principles, and numerous studies have demonstrated its effectiveness across various mental health conditions.

Cognitive restructuring is a fundamental aspect of CBT that focuses on identifying and challenging negative or distorted thought patterns. The premise is that our thoughts influence our emotions and behaviors, and by restructuring these thoughts, we can positively impact our feelings and actions.

The practice of cognitive restructuring induces positive changes in the brain’s neural pathways.

Consider someone with social anxiety who consistently fears judgment in social situations. Through CBT, they gradually expose themselves to social interactions. Over time, the brain adapts, forming new neural pathways associated with more positive perceptions and reduced anxiety in social settings.

Behavioral activation, another key aspect of CBT, involves encouraging people to engage in activities. The goal is to break the cycle of avoidance and withdrawal often associated with different mental health conditions.
