Cognitive behavioural therapy, or CBT, is a form of psychotherapy that is designed to help patients correct thought patterns that are causing them distress, or thoughts that are impeding their ability to function in everyday society. Negative thought patterns could contribute to low self-esteem, relationship issues, and more serious mental health disorders like anxiety or depression. A cognitive behavioural therapist is someone who works with patients in a one-on-one setting (generally). They can essentially “re-wire” a person’s thought patterns through various therapeutic techniques.
Cognitive behavioural therapists take a strategic, practical and solution-focused approach to helping clients. Much of the therapist’s work involves teaching clients to solve problems by modifying negative or faulty thinking, feelings and behaviours. Unlike other approaches, the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and client is one of ongoing collaboration. Through this process of collaboration the therapist and client will discover patterns of thinking that can impact feelings and behaviour.
