Many of us find ourselves making poor choices and displaying negative behaviors that have been unconsciously guided by our thoughts and feelings. We make decisions that do not serve us, or even that outright harm us or others around us. We may know we want to change this pattern but struggle to find the path to healing. If you find yourself desiring change, and wanting to establish a healthier, more beneficial pattern of behavior for your life, you may want to consider Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) at Psycamore.
How CBT Can Help You
What is CBT? CBT focuses on the connection between our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is a well-established and evidence-based form of psychotherapy that focuses on identifying and changing patterns of negative thinking and behavior. Psycamore integrates many aspects of CBT into our treatment plans, enabling you to address mental health challenges and improve your overall quality of life.
How does CBT work? Let’s explore the ways CBT can be an asset to you not only during your healing journey but also in everyday life. Here, you’ll find some commonly used cognitive behavioral therapy techniques that you may engage in during CBT therapy:
- Identify and change negative thought patterns
- Engage in positive behaviors to break cycles of avoidance and social withdrawal
- Develop effective coping skills
- Problem-solving strategies and methods
- Desensitize and reduce trigger-response through exposure
- Improve self-awareness and communication skills
- Set goals and improve self-esteem through achievement
What Conditions Does CBT Help With?
CBT is a form of therapy that when combined with other mental health treatments and strategies, can effectively treat a variety of mental health conditions. Some of the conditions CBT can help with include:
- Anxiety Disorders
- Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Eating Disorders
- Substance Use
- Bipolar Disorder
- Chronic Pain
- Stress & Anger Management
This is by no means a comprehensive list of mental health conditions that CBT can help with, nor should CBT be used as a standalone method of treating these conditions. The best approach to any mental health disorder or issue is to seek professional guidance in creating a personalized treatment plan. Licensed mental health professionals, like those at Psycamore, can help identify your needs and create a comprehensive treatment plan to improve your mental, emotional, and physical health.
