Cognitive Behavior Therapy Q & A

What is cognitive behavioral therapy?

Cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT, is a form of psychotherapy, or talk therapy, that focuses on the relationship between your thoughts and behaviors. Your licensed counselor works with you to identify negative thought patterns and beliefs that can contribute to unhelpful or self-destructive behaviors.

At Integrated Counseling and Wellness, experienced counselor Brady identifies these thoughts and behaviors and develops personalized coping strategies to help change them.


How does cognitive behavioral therapy work?

Cognitive behavioral therapy can help you identify thoughts and behavioral patterns that cause stress in your life. CBT begins with a comprehensive mental health assessment. Once Brady and the team identify the cause of these negative patterns, they develop a plan to replace them with positive, realistic strategies.

Creating these healthy habits can take multiple sessions. Brady and his team can adjust your personalized therapy plan as your needs change.


Who benefits from cognitive behavioral therapy?

Cognitive behavioral therapy is ideal for individuals with physical and mental health concerns, such as:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Phobias
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Chronic pain
  • Insomnia
  • Substance abuse
  • Eating disorders

CBT can also boost low self-esteem and promote confidence. If you struggle to maintain healthy relationships, advance in your career, and connect with your loved ones, CBT helps you manage emotions and behaviors that can create conflict.


What can I expect from cognitive behavioral therapy sessions?

Cognitive behavioral therapy is personalized for your needs. No two sessions or clients have the same therapy plan. At Integrated Counseling and Wellness, Brady administers a thorough assessment to evaluate your physical, mental, and emotional health.

He also asks questions about your personal and professional life and your family and medical history. This information helps Brady create your individualized CBT plan to better suit your unique needs.

During CBT sessions, Brady may use role-playing, exposure therapy, relaxation techniques, and other helpful strategies to challenge negative thought patterns and promote a more balanced way of thinking.


How long does cognitive behavioral therapy take to work?

CBT is a short-term form of therapy that usually lasts between 10 and 20 sessions, though your plan may be shorter or longer depending on your needs.
