Welcome to CBT Niagara
We are a group of clinicians with extensive and specialized experience in evidence-based treatment with cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). The individuals we see have a range of concerns from situational problems to complex comorbid conditions.
What is CBT?
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, or CBT, is an evidenced-based psychological therapy. It has been found to be the most effective form of treatment for a number of problems including mood, anxiety, and eating disorders. CBT involves developing an understanding of how your thoughts influence how you feel (both emotionally and physically) and behave. These components interact and influence each other. Thus, if left untreated distress and problematic behaviours worsen.
With CBT, individuals learn new skills to better manage problematic thoughts, feelings, and behaviours better. The goal of CBT is to teach the patients to become their own therapist so they can manage their symptoms on a daily basis. CBT is an interactive form of psychotherapy that requires the individual to actively participate in the session and complete homework assignments to test out the strategies discussed in session. Through this process, the patient can develop a sense of control over symptoms so they no longer feel controlled by them.
