What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)?
In essence, CBT is a psychotherapy approach which focuses on helping people recognize and change negative or repetitive thinking and behavior patterns. By using CBT tools, clients can often find ways to become “unstuck” and change their way of thinking, feeling and simply being in the world. It is one of the most effective forms of psychotherapy.
