The goal of CBT is for the patient to improve in any aspect of their his/her life. And for this reason, the best way, accompanied by other complementary therapies when necessary, is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
Characteristics of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Here and now
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy focuses on the immediate present, in the here and now. It analyses what you think, what you feel and how you act in this moment of your life.
CBT focuses on problems at this stage of life. Sometimes the person can detect them themselves, and other times, as a result of the therapy, we get to them, in order to get going until we can deal with them.
This therapy is aimed at achieving goals, both in the short and long term. We will do it as a team, between you and me. We will draw on other psychological approaches for greater success.
CBT is limited in time. Our goal, both yours and mine, is that we try to have as few sessions as possible. After therapy, you can continue to be “your own psychologist”. In case of relapse or for other reasons, you can come back to me again.
Therapy does not end at the consultation. It is not just about coming to talk and listen, it needs to be accompanied by a commitment and effort on a daily basis, doing what I have agreed with me, or at least trying to do it.
The CBT approach is educational. Through the sessions, you will learn important tools to manage your life, so that you can have a better quality of life.
