Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
CBT teaches you new ways of thinking and behaving that can help you get control over your complaints in the long-run. CBT focuses on the here and now, is structured and collaborative. The main principle of CBT is that our thoughts (also called cognitions), feelings, and behaviors are inter-connected, so if we change one, it has an effect on the other two. That means that if we change the way we think and behave, we can also change the way we feel. CBT is based on research and is the most effective treatment for a number of disorders. Furthermore, because clients learn self-help in therapy, they are able to maintain their improvement after therapy has been completed.
CBT is a practical and goal-oriented form of therapy that focuses on the here and now.
Virtual Reality Enhanced
The use of virtual reality therapy for psychological treatments has been researched for years and is now widely used as an alternative form for exposure therapy for phobias and anxiety disorders as well as other mental health problems.
