Relationship Troubles? Cognitive Behavioural Therapy May Help!

CBT-3A lot of people, when they think about undergoing psychological therapy still think that this is something only for if  someone needs help with serious psychological disorders such as anxiety, PTSD, phobias or trauma. But nothing can be further from the truth. These days, modern forms of psychological therapy can also help with everyday issues like stress, low self-confidence and even relationship troubles.

Cognitive behavioural therapy is one of these forms of therapy that can help if you have relationship troubles and/or if your love life doesn’t go as well as you would like. So, what is cognitive behavioural therapy?

Cognitive behavioural therapy or short CBT is a type of psychosocial intervention for all kinds of mental disorders and problems. It differs greatly from traditional psychotherapy. In psychotherapy, it is most often about finding the causes for mental problems. A good example that this would be when the therapist is uncovering childhood trauma and abuse that may be at the root of problems. With Cognitive behavioural therapy, it is not so much about finding the causes for problems but it is a therapy that focuses on solving problems before anything else. It is therefore a proactive form of therapy where helping the patient has priority.

Although cognitive behavioural therapy can help with mental problems such as PTSD, obsessive compulsive disorder or anxiety as well, it can also help with many other problems. People can get help with work-related stress, depression, sleeping problems, panic attacks were they can undergo therapy when they have relationship troubles.
