Cognitive behavioral therapy

About cognitive behavioral therapy

According to official guidelines, cognitive behavioral therapy is the psychological treatment of first choice for anxiety, depression, panic attacks, burnout and eating disorders.

Cognitive behavioral therapy is a combination of two forms of psychotherapy: cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy. In cognitive behavioral therapy, the behavior and thoughts that sustain the problems are discussed and treated.

Behavioral therapy

Behavioral therapy mainly focuses on changing your behavior. How you act largely determines how you feel. If you tend to avoid certain situations for fear, your tension will often worsen rather than lessen. In a behavioral therapy treatment you first determine the problematic behavior and the circumstances in which it occurs. The therapist then helps you respond to those conditions with more appropriate behavioral patterns. Together with the therapist, you make an inventory of the behavior that you suffer from, as well as inventing and practicing new, more appropriate behavior.

Cognitive therapy

Cognitive therapy is about your way of thinking and your emotions. Those who always view important issues and events in their lives from a negative point of view are and remain more easily anxious, gloomy or annoyed. In cognitive therapy you examine with your therapist if that way of thinking is correct. When it appears that you are tended to judge too negatively about all kinds of things, we will find out together which way of thinking is more appropriate. In working out more realistic views and developing more positive thoughts, the therapist uses specific exercises. The future is more important than the past.

Cognitive behavioral therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy treats both your behavior and your thoughts. Reacting differently changes your feelings and your thoughts. Changing your thoughts changes your feelings and your behavior. In cognitive behavioral therapy, the therapist works closely with you to improve your symptoms. It is an active way of treatment: in the therapy sessions you actively work on exercises. You also receive exercises and tools to work on your problems outside the sessions.
