Solution-focused, cognitive therapy is a time-effective, cost-efficient approach to individual counseling widely used for many personal problems. Research supports that cognitive therapy is often listed as a treatment-of-choice for depression, anxiety, fear, trauma, prolonged sadness and stress management just to name a few. Solution-focused, cognitive therapy can help you regain the sense of control in your life, offer insight for managing difficult emotions and provide new ways of approaching old or persistent problems.
Solution-focused, cognitive therapy will effectively help you:
gain insight into how you can become ‘your own worst enemy.’
provide understanding on why you can’t always ‘make yourself’ or ‘will yourself’ better.
reveal hidden core beliefs that can cause repeated problems in your life.
utilize strengths you already have and apply them to current situations.
Solution-focused, cognitive therapy understands that:
the way we interpret events determines how we act or feel.
feelings are important indicators that something is wrong.
we are not victims of our past, that life can be different!
paralysis occurs because we ask the same questions and recycle our thinking.
with understanding, we can act our way into new ways of thinking and feeling.
medication can complement talk-therapy but isn’t the only answer.
