Cognitive Therapy is an action-oriented, practical, focused psychotherapy that helps identify specific biases in thinking and how to change that way of thinking. It is used to treat a vast range of issues including anxiety, eating disorders, substance abuse, depression, alcohol abuse, and more. This type of therapy focuses on how the patient is behaving, communicating and thinking rather than on past childhood experiences. It helps patients to deal with real-life issues and learn self-help skills to change the way they are currently behaving, feeling and thinking.
Cognitive therapy is based on a lot of scientific research and because patients learn self-help they often avoid relapse. It is often more effective than medication in treating anxiety and depression. In this type of therapy patients learn to understand their emotions and respect those feelings without being overwhelmed by the experience.
