What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a short term, focused, goal oriented therapy that has been shown through scientific research to be highly effective for the treatment of many mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, anger, interpersonal issues and couples conflicts. There are also specific CBT treatments for trauma (TF-CBT) and medical conditions such as chronic pain and insomnia (I-CBT).

In CBT the therapist acts like a coach, teaching helpful strategies that the client can practice between sessions. Clients learn how to overcome their difficulties by changing some of their perspectives, behavior, and emotional responses. Cognitive Therapy is a collaborative approach and is compatible with the use of prescribed medication.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is:

  • Practical
  • Short term (between 6 and 20 sessions)
  • Goal oriented
  • Structured
  • Educational
  • Uses a collaborative approach
  • Clients are active participants

Thoughts, emotions and behaviors are inter-connected and affect one another, so specific techniques and exercises are taught to create changes in your mood and actions.

Clients are expected to be active participants and to practice the skills learned between the sessions. Treatment is oriented to resolve present-problems and accomplish personal goals within a nonjudgmental and safe therapeutic relationship.

We are clinical psychologists based in Thornhill, serving the Thornhill, Vaughan, Markham, Richmond Hill and North York communities. We offer services in English, Spanish, Greek, Hebrew, Farsi and Russian. To book an appointment you can:
