A cognition is a thought, and cognitions are the way we think about things at any given moment. Our thoughts often pass through our minds automatically, but also have a huge impact on the way we feel. Through cognitive therapy you can change the way you think about things, thereby changing your beliefs and feelings. When you do, it will be possible to experience a change in both your mood and outlook.
Cognitive Therapy has quickly become one of the most popular forms of therapy among both mental health professionals and the general public alike. Concurrently, it has become one of the most researched forms of psychotherapy in the world. There are many reasons why Cognitive Therapy has provoked such interest.
According to David Burns, M.D., an expert in cognitive therapy, the main reason that cognitive therapy has become so popular is that it is extremely down to earth and intuitively appealing. Also, research has shown time and time again that cognitive therapy can assist individuals with making positive changes in their lives and has even proven to be just as helpful as the best antidepressant medications.
Cognitive Therapy is a short term, focused, problem-solving psychotherapy. There are three main components; education, skill building and problem solving. The therapist and client work as a team in order to identify and then solve problems.
You can use Cognitive Therapy to overcome a variety of mental health problems such as depression, frustration, panic, chronic worry and phobias, as well as personal relationship problems such as marital distress or difficulties at work. Once therapy is complete, clients can continue to use what they have learned to solve problems and achieve their goals.
