Cognitive Therapy

Cognitive Therapy (CT), is a form of psychotherapy in which the therapist and the client work together as a team to identify and solve problems. It is a relatively short-term, focused psychotherapy for a wide range of psychological problems including depression, anxiety, anger, marital conflict, loneliness, panic, fears, eating disorders, substance abuse, alcohol abuse and dependence and personality problems. Cognitive therapy helps the patient learn effective self-help skills that are used in homework assignments that help you change the way you think, feel and behave now. Cognitive-behavioral therapy is action-oriented, practical, rational, and helps the patient gain independence and effectiveness in dealing with real-life issues.

This involves the individual working collaboratively with the therapist to develop skills for testing and modifying beliefs, identifying distorted thinking, relating to others in different ways, and changing behaviors. A tailored cognitive case conceptualization is developed by the cognitive therapist as a roadmap to understand the individual's internal reality, select appropriate interventions and identify areas of distress. Cognitive therapy has been applied to a very wide range of behavioral health issues including: Academic achievement, addiction, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, phobia, schizophrenia, substance abuse, suicidal ideation, weight loss.
