People Who Could Benefit from CBT
In sessions, you will work with our clinicians to identify, challenge and change problem thought patterns. Cognitive behaviour therapy can benefit people struggling with depression, anxiety, disorder, insomnia, and phobias.
Those Suffering from Depression
Our CBT sessions are meant to create awareness of the negative thoughts so common when feeling depressed and hopeless. We will help you to change your thought patterns and process to be more realistic and maybe even more positive. We will also help you to change how you act, so you can change how you feel.
The therapy is effective for all levels of depression, mild, moderate, and severe, although a combination of CBT and medication is often most effective for moderate and severe depression, especially when symptoms are so severe that they prevent a person from being able to do the work of treatment.
If Someone has Insomnia
Cognitive behaviour therapy can also be used to treat insomnia and the racing mind that often interferes with sleep. We can show you how to change behaviours that are incompatible with sleep and relaxation, and help you build new habits that link being in bed with falling asleep quickly.
People with Anxiety
Anxiety is normal in many situations; however, when it gets out of hand, treatment can help. When suffering from an anxiety disorder, you might tend to overestimate the danger of potential threats and underestimate your ability to cope. Cognitive behaviour therapy will help you to understand what is triggering your anxiety so you can look at the situation from a more logical perspective. We tailor the sessions to suit your needs for the most effective results.
Individuals with Phobias
Phobias are intense and unrealistic fears about situations and objects that are not dangerous. Common phobias in children include fears of bugs, animals, stormy weather, school and throwing up. Common phobias in adults can include fears of driving on highways, flying in airplanes and public speaking.
Specific phobias like these can be easily treatable with exposure therapy, a type of cognitive behavioural therapy that focuses on helping you to develop realistic views of the things you are fearing and then gives you real-life exposure to it, so you can learn that you can cope with it.
Other Ways Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Can Help
CBT sessions are helpful with issues such as the following:
- Attention deficiency hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Uncontrollable worrying
- Work-related issues, including interpersonal conflicts and finding a better work-life balance
- School performance issues
- Marriage, family and parenting issues
To see if CBT is right for you, contact us. We will evaluate the nature of the problem and book you for an appointment with the clinician best suited for you. You will then receive a confirmation email with the date and time of the appointment along with the name of the clinician.
Treatment usually lasts between 10 and 20 sessions, with each session taking an average of 50 minutes.
