Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) isFocused on the present
- CBT helps with the symptoms you’re currently experiencing such as anxiety, panic, or binge eating. The first focus is on helping you deal with the most pressing current issues and then, as these improve, we can work on broader issues.
- In CBT, you can expect to learn techniques and skills to help manage your emotions between sessions. Therapy is not only a way to gain insights and have support, but also one in which you can gain skills that stay with you long after therapy ends.
- Numerous research studies have compared CBT to other forms of treatment and shown that CBT is helpful for issues such as binge eating, bulimia, panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety, and depression. Read more about research on binge eating and bulimia at the blog which includes recent studies on CBT.
