How CBT Works
This variety of cognition therapy for anxiety and depression works by changing your outlook and behaviors. I begin by working with you to identify the distorted thoughts, beliefs, and feelings behind your unwanted behaviors. Together, we will challenge the underlying outlook, aiming to swap the negative thought patterns for a more realistic outlook.
For example, someone with anxiety might be in the habit of assuming the worst-case scenario whenever something troubling occurs. This outlook leads to a downward spiral, resulting in the person taking actions like freezing up, acting out, or harming themselves. CBT aims to break down the thought process that leads to these behaviors by introducing undistorted thought patterns.
