What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) involves exploring the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. CBT often will require identifying and challenging certain unhelpful or negative thinking patterns. The goal of CBT is to help you, with the support of a therapist, restructure some of these automatic negative thoughts, and get you on track to feeling better.
What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is being aware of the present moment without judgment. Some common mindfulness practices you may be familiar with are yoga, meditation, and deep breathing but there are much more.
Some of the benefits of having a regular mindfulness practice include:
- Increased concentration
- Improved executive functioning
- Improved distress tolerance
- Improved impulse control
- A decrease in anxiety symptoms
- A decrease in depression symptoms
Why try Group Therapy?
Group therapy does not necessarily replace individual therapy. Group therapy can be a helpful supplement to the work that you do with an individual therapist. Group can be a great place to put into practice skills you have learned from individual therapy. Many clients find that group therapy is all they need to start getting relief.
Here are a few other benefits:
- Groups help build a social connection.
- Groups foster a sense of belonging.
- You get a chance to give back and feel useful.
- You can get extra support and accountability.
