Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT looks at our thoughts, feelings and behaviors. CBT therapists understand that by changing the way we think and act in the here-and-now, we can affect the way we feel. CBT also looks at people longitudinally: exploring the origin of beliefs, rules and assumptions which shape an individual's world-view. CBT can be model-driven for a range of disorders, but cases are also be formulated (conceptualized) individually.
