You feel like you’re repeating the same mistakes. Hopeless and inevitable define your attitude towards everyday experiences. It’s time for a different outlook on life so things can begin to look up.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) offers a new way of thinking and acting that you can use in many situations. No longer stuck in the past, you can experience more positive outcomes now and in the future.
The goal is to change troublesome thought patterns or behaviors and promote positive feelings. As the name suggests, we will challenge uncomfortable thoughts and feelings, and identify positive replacements.
At the heart of cognitive-behavioral therapy is challenging “core beliefs.” These are automatic thoughts that have usually been established at a young age. Core beliefs are usually not very transparent, but serve as the foundation for thoughts and actions. By discussing daily thoughts and actions, we can discover these automatic thoughts. If they are significantly interfering with your life, we need to change them! That is where the depth of our work together begins.
