What Is CBT?

CBT is a form of therapy that has been systematically studied and shown to be effective for a variety of concerns. Research shows that CBT can significantly reduce anxiety and improve quality of life. It is typically shorter in duration and goal-oriented. The individual and therapist are active during sessions, facing one's fears or concerns in a graduated manner. Individuals also complete exercises between sessions. It is challenging work, just like taking each step to ascend a mountain; however, the rewards are plentiful. CBT enables individuals to make gains in therapy and maintain them on their own after therapy ends. Individuals often report symptom reduction and improved quality of life after a course of CBT.
