Cognitive Therapy Service

Cognitive therapy is all about enabling the mind to become stronger, which, in turn, will allow the patient to feel good about himself.

Being able to improve one’s mental function will have significant long-term effects, both for the person’s individual well-being and his relations with others. Cognitive therapy enables the patient to conduct a complete attitude adjustment by changing the way they perceive and think about their struggles.

Cognitive Testing

A changed worldview goes a long way in improving a person’s self-esteem and social skills as well as strengthening relationships. Cognitive therapy teaches its students that the way to cure mental disorders is simply not adopting a more positive outlook on things. Rather, it provides exercises and techniques to make the brain more effective.

With a little help from medical professionals and a strong internal desire to change, it’s possible to turn your way of thinking around.

How Cognitive Therapy Cures Mental Disorder and Addiction

Cognitive therapy seeks to help the patient in this aspect by equipping the mind with all the necessary tools it will need to cope with difficulties. Thus, learning a new cognitive function will have a trickle-down effect: first, the mindset is affected, then the person’s actions, until finally, even the person’s relationships will experience a turnaround for the better.

Cognitive therapy offers treatment that lasts. With the right training and proper guidance, anyone can become strong enough to apply these lessons to an addiction recovery. As such, the person now becomes equipped to properly face his problems not just in the present, but also in the future.

How Is Cognitive Therapy Done?

Cognitive behavior is typically conducted via one-on-one sessions with a qualified psychotherapist. While group therapy is also encouraged, more practitioners of cognitive therapy point to individual sessions with the psychotherapist as having more long-term benefits. Having these individual sessions promises several benefits for anyone looking to try cognitive therapy:

Individual sessions are more focused

A key element of cognitive therapy is its emphasis on breaking down any problem or issue into manageable chunks. Each and every part of a person’s problem will be thoroughly discussed and broken down so that a specific cause could be identified to cure the effects.

With focus comes structure – and in cognitive therapy, there’s nothing more important than this. As the therapy will be running for the short term only, allotting specific dates and times for specific parts of the problem is par for the course. By having exact days to discuss exact aspects of the problem will enable the patient to arrive at a more suitable, practical solution.

Individual sessions are more personalized

Also important for cognitive therapy is a fostering partnership between the patient and the psychotherapist. Compared to other therapy methods, where the patient completely relies on the psychotherapist for prescriptions, cognitive therapy encourages healthy participation from both sides.

The problem will be discussed together, which means that devising an appropriate solution will be reached in the same way. Having these intense, solution-driven sessions with a psychotherapist ensures the patient of having someone reliable and trustworthy to talk to. The longer the sessions go on and the more both parties become more familiar with each other, coming up with a solution will become easier.

Compared to other sessions where the patient is given the opportunity to discuss freely, or other therapies where the psychotherapist prescribes solutions, cognitive therapy offers a scientifically designed program to improve brain health.

As the mind is brought into focus during cognitive therapy, a joint partnership between two parties who trust each other, as well as a more specific solution to cover all aspects of the problem, will enable the patient to feel much better about himself. Self-esteem will slowly rise, and the patient will soon begin to feel good about himself again.
