I know we have many members that are experts at CBT and there are older posts on the site but I thought the topic would be appropriate to bring up as we have many new members.
What is CBT therapy?
Cognitive-behavioral therapy is based on the idea that our
cause our feelings and behaviors, not external things, like people, situations, and events. The benefit of this fact is that we can change the way we think to feel / act better even if the situation does not change.
It has been found to be helpful in
Anxiety, Depression, Panic, Agoraphobia and other phobias, Social phobia, Bulimia, Obsessive compulsive disorder, Post traumatic stress disorder and Schizophrenia.
CBT can help you to make sense of overwhelming problems by breaking them down into smaller parts. This makes it easier to see how they are connected and how they affect you
CBT can help you to break this vicious circle of altered thinking, feelings and behaviour
Here is a link to the
free online CBT therapy that you can do from your own home.
Just click on the link:
OK, now all of you successful members that have used CBT please share how this therapy has changed you life.
I thank you in advance for sharing with the new members. :)

CBT has helped me in so many different ways. I have learned to think differently, give people the benefit of a doubt and put myself in their shoes when it comes to the way that they think and that I think.
I have learned to not jump to conclusions about
things and not let things bother me.
I have also learned to stop dwelling on the past and stop worrying about
the future. To stay in the moment and practice mindfullness.
We are all only human, and people can only hurt us if we let them. I have learned to over look peoples words and realize that they cannot control my moods, only I can do that. So if somebody says or does something to hurt me, it is up to me to not let it bother me.
Most of all, I think staying in the moment is the most important thing and learning not to let stuff get to me. I have come a long way with cbt and I am thankful to have learned about
