Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Q & A

What is cognitive behavioral therapy?

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy that utilizes a variety of techniques to make positive changes in the way you think. Because thinking affects your emotions and the way you see yourself, shifting your thought patterns helps you understand challenging situations and respond to them in healthy ways.

When you work with Dr. Eustache, she draws on her extensive knowledge of CBT, tailoring your therapy to meet your individual needs. She selects CBT techniques that help you end negative thought patterns and practice positive thinking, so you can take positive actions that improve your everyday experience. 

What are the benefits of CBT?

CBT uses a cognitive model of emotional response that identifies thoughts as the root cause of emotions and behavior, rather than people, situations, or events. Because you have control over your own thoughts, you can change how you feel and how you act. This helps you navigate situations where you can’t control the circumstances or the actions of other people.

CBT offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Drug-free management of depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders
  • Techniques for coping with life stressors
  • Enhanced communication skills
  • Conflict resolution
  • Improved romantic and non-romantic relationships
  • Help through life transitions, like a divorce or the loss of a loved one
  • Support for chronic illness and other physical conditions

CBT offers faster results when compared to other methods. 

What should I expect from cognitive behavioral therapy?

When you see Dr. Eustache for CBT, she spends time listening and asking questions. This helps her learn about your life goals and the thoughts that currently prevent you from obtaining those goals. She enables you to express your feelings and identify negative thought patterns that lead to low self-esteem and difficulties in certain situations.

Based on your personal needs, Dr. Eustache assigns CBT homework, including worksheets that help you examine and redirect your thinking. She also has you practice techniques that train your brain to get rid of toxic thoughts and encourage productive changes in the way you think about and speak to yourself and others.

Through these exercises and routine visits, you develop healthier thought patterns and kinder self-talk. You also learn to control how you respond to triggering situations and improve your communication skills.
