If you’ve never heard what it involves, you might approach it with trepidation, unsure of what to expect. Despite what a mouthful its name can be, cognitive behavioral therapy is a therapy with a surprisingly simple goal:
To help you overcome your worries, anxieties, depression, and any other mental health issues you might be plagued with.
The problem a lot of people face today is negative thoughts.
How do you overcome these unhelpful patterns of thinking that seem to have such a strong and powerful grip on your mind?
Maybe you woke up this morning and thought to yourself, "I’m not going to let my negative thoughts bother me today," but as soon as you walked out the door, that good intention becomes harder and harder to sustain. Every practical strategy you will be introduced to by your CBT therapist is designed to help you change the way you think.
A simple shift in perspective is sometimes all it takes to bring about the biggest positive change in our lives. You’ve heard the stories of the many successful individuals who overcame adversity most of us can’t even imagine going through. If they can do it through the power of positive thinking (and the right coping mechanisms), there’s no reason why you can’t.
However, a lot of people might hesitate at the idea of taking up CBT as a way to overcome their anxieties because the word "therapy" is off-putting. For someone who is dealing with anxiety, being unsure of what to expect is not a situation they’ll be willing to put themselves through. Not with all the multiple worries that they’re already juggling. But that’s why you’re here. Why you’ve picked up this audiobook.
