What is CBT?

Cognitive and Behavioral Therapies (CBT) focus on the visible part of the iceberg, the one causing distress.

 

The practice is centered around cognition, meaning the thoughts and sometimes erroneous and negative beliefs an individual holds about themselves.

These can generate a state of suffering and neurotic behavior (dependency, phobias, OCD) that the therapy aims to correct.

Belonging to the family of brief therapies, unlike psychologists, CBT relies on an active relationship between the therapist and the patient in the learning of new behaviors.
