Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, or CBT, is the therapy of choice for medical practitioners referring patients that are struggling with certain destructive behaviours. It is a well recognised system of training a patient to identify and reconstruct certain negative thought processes which may be affecting their lives.
Our feelings and emotions influence how we deal with every event. Negative emotions can adversely affect any part of our lives. For example a woman who has suffered physical abuse feels she can no longer cope because her self-esteem has become so low. CBT helps her to picture certain situations she faces and to examine the thought processes which convince her she is not equipped with the necessary skills or confidence.
It is an extremely valuable tool which is very highly regarded not only by mental health consumers but also medical providers too. One of the main reasons is it is such a popular therapy, apart from its convincing results, is the fact treatment tends to be over a very short term and focused on a specific problem. This makes it very accessible at a cost which people can afford.
