Starting Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)

What is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)?

At Thriveworks, Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a widely recognized and evidence-based form of psychotherapy or talk therapy. It focuses on identifying and changing negative thought patterns, emotions, and behaviors that can contribute to various mental health issues or challenges that people are struggling with.

What does a cognitive behavioral therapist do?

Cognitive behavioral therapists specialize in Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and can help you to identify and comprehend your thought patterns, which often encompass automatic negative thoughts, cognitive distortions, and self-defeating beliefs. Once these negative thought patterns are pinpointed, cognitive behavioral therapists aim to challenge and replace them with the objective of fostering more constructive and logical thinking. In addition, these therapists place significant emphasis on implementing positive behavioral changes based on the newly established, healthier thought patterns.

What is CBT best for?

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is particularly effective for addressing conditions like anxiety disorders, depression, phobias, and obsessive-compulsive disorders. It focuses on identifying and modifying negative thought patterns and behaviors, making it well-suited for issues related to distorted thinking and emotional regulation.

How much does a CBT session cost?

At Thriveworks, we take most major forms of insurance, meaning many of our clients only pay a small $0-$50 co-pay. However, we have self-pay options, too. For those out-of-network, our therapy and psychiatry services are around $200, depending on the service and location.

What is the success rate of CBT?

The success rate of CBT varies depending on the intentions of the client and their condition(s).

What's better: CBT or DBT?

The selection between cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is based on an individual's unique needs and challenges. CBT is commonly chosen for addressing conditions such as anxiety and depression, whereas DBT is especially beneficial for individuals dealing with borderline personality disorder, emotional regulation issues, and difficulties in interpersonal relationships.

Is CBT conducted in person or online?

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) with our Thriveworks therapists in Marietta, GA is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How many sessions is CBT?

Generally, CBT is considered a short-term therapy, typically lasting for about 12 to 20 weekly sessions. In some cases, it might extend to around 16 to 20 sessions for more complex issues.

Need more help deciding?

Feeling stuck? Everyone has been there. Many people struggle with negative, untrue thought patterns. Many people are also learning that there is a difference between reality and how they think about reality. What if these thoughts were not true? What if you had options and a path forward even though you feel overwhelmed? In most cases, there are always options, and when people change their mindset, they are often able to make valuable changes in other areas of their lives.

“I learned to take those experiences that were difficult in my life and
in the adversity that I had overcome to use it for a positive change.”
—Dominique Moceanu

It is often easier to talk about positive change than to implement it. The reality is that changing negative thoughts into positive ones can be a difficult process, and many people are reaching out for help. They are finding the help they need by working with a therapist who utilizes cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).

CBT is a method of therapy that has been proven to help a variety of people struggling with a variety of problems. Research showed that clients who underwent CBT experience long-term and substantial changes in their lives because they focused upon their own thoughts. For individuals who struggled with depression or anxiety, CBT provided as much relief as medication did. The focus of CBT is to equip individuals with cognitive and emotional skills that make a difference in their actions. Often, it’s benefits persist long after therapy ends. If you think that you could find value in working with a cognitive behavioral therapist, reach out to Thriveworks Marietta in Cobb County today.

CBT: What Is It?

Cognitive behavior therapy is both practical and proactive. It is a therapeutic method that focuses upon a particular social, emotional, psychological, or relational challenge a client is facing. Individuals work closely with a therapist to change their own negative thinking and behaviors within the situation. The primary focus is not the other person or the circumstance, but the client’s own thinking and actions.

Certain, difficult people and circumstances can arise within people’s lives, but often, they have no control over those while they have significant control over the meaning they assign to these circumstances and relationships. CBT first seeks to identify negative, untrue thought patterns. Then, these can be adjusted with a more positive and true response.

One example of how cognitive behavioral therapy works is with insomnia clients. When people cannot sleep, they may tell themselves things like, “I will never sleep again.” This untrue and negative thought can raise people’s anxiety and contribute to the insomnia. Replacing this thought with a positive and true thought can help the problem. When people tell themselves positive, true things, their anxiety is often reduced. For example, insomnia clients can instead tell themselves, “insomnia responds to treatment. I am doing my best to stick to my sleep routine and give myself a good chance at a good night’s sleep. One bad night does not determine the next night’s rest.”

Cognitive Distortions—The Root Problem

These negative thought patterns have name: cognitive distortions. There are common cognitive distortions that plague people, causing or exacerbating problems in their lives. A few examples of cognitive distortions include:

  • Polarized thinking imposes a black-and-white outlook upon the world. Everything is either good or evil; awesome or terrible; lovely or disgusting.
  • Blaming looks for fault, even when none can be found or when assigning blame does not help the situation.
  • Catastrophizing looks for the worst in every occasion. It magnifies any negative detail to be a sign that disaster is sure to come.
  • Control fallacies happen when people take too much responsibility for a situation or they abdicate responsibility, feeling victimized by fate, luck, or the universe.
  • Filtering sifts out any good or positive within a situation so that the focus is exclusive upon what has gone wrong. People who filter often dismiss evidence of anything favorable.
  • Overgeneralization takes one event and universalizes it.
  • Emotional reasoning equates how people feel about a reality with the reality itself.
  • Personalization takes other people’s actions as direct reflections upon oneself. For example, if my friend cannot meet for dinner, then that friend must not care me (when maybe that friend just has to work late).
  • Fairness fallacy compares one’s life to others, imposing an arbitrary standard of what people deserve and what is fair.
