Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy

Your Needs Are Our Priority

At REACH Behavioral Health, we want to prioritize you. That means prioritizing your mental health, needs, and goals. But it also means prioritizing your time.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy is one of the most widely used therapeutic methods for good reason. CBT treatment helps clients understand why they feel, think, or behave the way that they do. Once you’re able to pinpoint the root causes of your thoughts and actions, it’s much easier to figure out ways to cope and heal. Cognitive therapy does this quickly and effectively.

By using cognitive-behavioral treatment, our counselors and psychiatrists are best equipped to help you find solutions and start envisioning a path toward improved mental health.

FAQs About Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment

What Is Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy?

Cognitive therapy is a type of talk therapy, or psychotherapy. This therapeutic method allows the counselor and client to come together to challenge negative thought patterns, uncover root causes, and create a more realistic outlook. In turn, this can help the client develop coping mechanisms for a mental illness or consider alternative ways of behaving.

What Does Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy Involve?

In CBT treatment, a counselor will walk a client through why they are thinking the way that they are. Then, it is determined whether that thought pattern is negative or realistic. In most cases, the thought pattern is negative. Once a client is able to identify negative thinking and behaviors, the counselor helps him or her to be equipped with new thinking strategies.

What Is an Example of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy?

As an example of CBT, a counselor may be working with a client who is struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts. The counselor would then talk with the client about where these thoughts and feelings are coming from.

If the client thinks that no one would care if they were gone, the counselor helps them work through what would happen and who would be affected if they committed suicide. The client can then realize that they have family members or friends who would be devastated by losing them. Once this is identified, the counselor can help the client by equipping them with ways to combat negative, false thinking when it occurs.

Is Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy Effective?

Yes, CBT treatment is one of the most effective and widely used psychotherapies. This type of talk therapy helps clients identify problems in their own thoughts and behaviors, then develop alternative thinking patterns, behaviors, and coping mechanisms.

Why Is CBT the Best Therapy?

Cognitive-behavioral therapy is the most effective type of psychotherapy in most situations. More often than not, people cannot change their upbringing, circumstances, or the way that other people are treating them, which can all contribute to poor mental health. CBT treatment empowers clients to take control in the ways they can. This includes their personal thought life and behavior.
