Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is an extensively researched treatment that has shown its effectiveness in treating a wide range of issues, such as Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Eating Disorders, Substance Use Disorders (Addictions), and PTSD.

In CBT, individuals become aware of the links between their moods, thoughts and their behavior. They learn how to engage in more helpful behavior and more positive, realistic and balanced thinking to influence their moods.

CBT is practical, present oriented, focused on problem-solving, and short-term. Treatment typically ranges from 12-20 sessions.
