What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)?

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is based on the theory that cognitions (thoughts and visual images) influence our emotions and behaviour;  A cognitive-behavioral approach involves collaboration between client and therapist in identifying, evaluating and modifying unhelpful automatic thoughts which are obstacles to client goals. In addition, the exploration of solutions to obstacles (present and future) and practising behavioral skills learned in session are key aspects of CBT. Moreover, CBT emphasizes client values and aspirations, drawing positive conclusions from day-to-day activities and experiencing positive emotions in and outside of therapy.
