Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a technique that helps us become more aware of our thoughts and feelings. Your mind accepts your thoughts as truth, and negative thinking is common when people are experiencing depression or anxiety. These thoughts create a loop with feelings that is very difficult to get out of. Continuous thoughts of worry, anxiety and fear are unhealthy and often manifest in the body as stress, panic attacks and depression. By becoming more aware of how our thoughts and feelings are related, we can have a direct impact on making ourselves feel better. At times experiments are made in behaviors to create changes in thoughts. This technique is effective in working with a variety of symptoms for depression, anxiety, stress, phobias and chronic pain.
