The Benefits of CBT for Anxiety

It is a part of life to experience occasional anxiety, however, if your anxiety level is really high and interfere with your daily life and tasks, you better see a therapist to overcome the anxiety and improve yourself.

According to many studies, CBT (Cognitive-behavioral therapy) is one of the most effective therapies for anxiety because it helps you to change your negative thought patterns and to learn new ways of thinking and behaving. CBT is a short, effective and highly constructed therapy, and it encourages you to acquire long-term techniques that you can apply yourself even after the therapy sessions end.

Through cognitive-behavioral therapy, you will question your old thoughts whether they are rational and based on the facts or not, and test your behaviors, such as being exposed to a stressful situation to see if it really threatens your safety or not. After these, you’ll be able to change your thoughts and behaviors with better and beneficial ones. Also, you’ll become more rational and optimistic; will learn how your thoughts affect your actions/feelings and control them, and calm yourself when confronting the stressful situation.

If you think you would be a good candidate for CBT Therapy, contact AMR Mental Health Therapy for more information or to schedule an appointment.
