We all experience similar moods and emotions at various times in our lives. However
sometimes moods and emotions such as anxiety, stress, sadness or depression and anger, can be a block to our happiness and fulfillment. If so
Cognitive Behavior Therapy, C.B.T.
an evidenced based, and time
limited approach, can provide you with tools to manage these moods and emotions,
and reduce their negative influence on your life.
An oyster creates a pearl out of a grain of sand .The grain of sand is an irritant to the oyster. In response to the discomfort, the oyster creates a smooth, protective coating that encases the sand and provides relief .The result is a beautiful pearl.( Greenberger and Padesky 1995)
Just as an oyster develops from the seed of an irritant something new and valuable, CBT will help you develop skills from your current problem, skills that will be valuable throughout your life. So by understanding the interaction between your thoughts, behaviors, emotions and physiology, you can begin to challenge unhelpful thinking patterns and behaviors.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy is one of the few forms of
psychotherapy that has been
scientifically tested and found to be effective in hundreds of clinical
trials for many different disorders.....cognitive therapy is usually
more focused on the present, more time limited, and more problem-solving
orientated. In addition, clients learn specific skills that they can
use for the rest of their lives. These skills involve identifying
distorted thinking, modifying beliefs, relating to others in different
ways, and changing behaviors. (Judith Beck 2011)
