Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Online

CBT is one of the most commonly used methods for treating mental health problems and now you can take advantage of the benefits using CBT online.

The basics of CBT

Basics of CBT

Since CBT constitutes the whole foundation for all our online therapy programs we believe that it’s important for you to get a quick insight into what CBT is.

Cognitive: A term describing your thoughts and anything to do with the mind’s function, i.e. dreams, images, etc.
Behavioral: Refers to how we respond to stimuli, i.e. things we do and also the things we don’t do.

CBT is based on the idea that your thoughts are what cause your feelings and behaviors, not external stimuli like people, situations and events. That is, it’s not the stimuli that causes your emotions, but it’s how you interpret and perceive that stimuli. The benefit of this insight is that you can change the way you think so that you feel and act better, even if the situation hasn’t changed. As you can see in the diagram above, there is a cycle of consequences with everything you do and this plays a great part in your overall feelings.
