Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a widely practiced and evidence-based psychotherapeutic approach that focuses on the connection between a person's thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and overall mental health. Developed by Aaron T. Beck and Albert Ellis in the 1960s and 1970s, CBT has since become one of the most extensively researched and effective forms of psychotherapy. The therapeutic process is goal oriented and adopts a more active approach that aims to help individuals identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors that  contribute to their psychological distress. CBT is often a short-term therapy, typically consisting of 10 to 20 sessions, but the number of sessions can vary depending on the individual and the nature of the issues being addressed. Its collaborative and practical nature makes it a valuable tool for helping people develop skills to manage their mental health effectively and make lasting improvements in their lives.
