Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in Colorado

You’re sick of feeling controlled by your negative thoughts.

Too often, you feel like your thoughts are negative. You find yourself going through thought patterns that are pretty destructive. In addition, your actions often reflect these negative thoughts. At times, you catch yourself doing or saying things that you regret later. And, the worst part is that it’s hard to tell how intentional these actions were. If this sounds familiar, cognitive behavioral therapy in Colorado could be a good place to start.

What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT, is a short-term, problem-focused form of behavioral treatment. What does that mean in everyday human language? It means that CBT is a form of therapy that is considered a “short-term intervention” because it typically lasts between 5-20 sessions. In those sessions, you will work with your counselor to look closely at the “problem” you’re experiencing. Under cognitive behavioral therapy, a counselor will help you to tease the problem out to see the pieces that are contributing to it.  We know that there are three main components that we can address: thoughts, beliefs, and feelings.

The CBT Triangle

For cognitive-behavioral therapy, think about a triangle. Cognitive-behavioral therapy works by looking at the relationship between these three pieces. In addition, CBT helps us to see how these three components are affecting each other.  Furthermore, CBT is grounded in the belief that it is a person’s perception of events – rather than the events themselves. This determines how he or she will feel and act in response. So, CBT helps us see that behavior often makes sense when you understand the context.

What Can CBT Help With?

The great thing about CBT is that it can help with a variety of different situations. Research tells us that cognitive-behavioral therapy is beneficial for someone who is struggling with their thoughts. Often, these aren’t helpful for them. So, with that in mind, many people can benefit from CBT! Our therapists have provided CBT in Colorado to many people.

With cognitive behavioral therapy, you’ll be able to adjust the thoughts that directly influence your emotions and behavior. This process is called cognitive reconstructing. And, this happens with different techniques used in cognitive behavioral therapy.

What Techniques Are Used in CBT?

CBT uses a variety of different techniques. In cognitive-behavioral therapy, your counselor will teach you many different skills to incorporate in and out of session. Interestingly, there are lots of different skills that can be used in CBT. Additionally, these skills can be used for different situations. Cognitive-behavioral therapy offers some flexibility when deciding what skills to use. This is important because some skills will work better for some people.
