What Is CBT - Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

Updated 02-Aug-2019 - First Published 02-Aug-2019 by Debi Douglas

CBT stands for cognitive behavioral therapy.

Cognitive behavioral therapy examines how thought processes influence our emotions, motivations, perceptions, and behaviors.

If one has negative thoughts then negative behaviors and a negative self image will be manifested in most aspects of our lives.

If one exercises positive thoughts then positive behaviors and actions will be determined in our lives. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a theoretical intervention intended to assist a client in therapy to replace negative thoughts and behaviors with positive thoughts, behaviors and outcomes.

As a skilled psychotherapist, I use cognitive and behavior change techniques in a pragmatic manner to help clients make positive changes in their lives.
