Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Interpersonal Therapy

Cognitive Therapy for anxiety, panic attacks, stress, and depression.

CBT is a relatively short-term psychotherapy, based on the idea that the way we think about things affects how we feel emotionally, and subsequently, how we behave. CBT focuses on current thinking, behaviour, and communication rather than on past experiences and is focused on problem solving. Cognitive refers to our thoughts or cognitions, and behavioural refers to the ways we act. Research has shown that CBT is particularly effective in the treatment of anxiety disorders and depression.

CBT is also recognized as an excellent alternative to medication.

CBT is probably the most widely researched form of psychotherapy, with more research to support its effectiveness than any other form of therapy.

Interpersonal therapy for depression, relationship concerns, self esteem, or personal growth.

Interpersonal therapy for individuals focuses on past and present social roles and interpersonal interactions. The client and therapist chose one or two problems in the client’s life to focus on, for example disputes with friends, co-workers, grief, or life transitions such as retirement or divorce.
