Sometimes, our anxious thinking patterns become so ingrained in how we operate that we don’t realize that they are self-destructive. Identifying damaging thought patterns that have held control of our lives for so long and working to alter them can feel like a daunting task. Luckily, there are proven techniques to assist in this process, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT, is one technique.
VeryWellMind states that CBT involves identifying any negative thoughts an individual may be feeling, working to develop coping skills in the event that negative thoughts are triggered by one’s environment, setting goals for progress, problem-solving through their own situation, and taking note of areas of personal strengths and weaknesses.
Since this therapeutic approach is systematic and structured, this methodology may not be a good fit for every client, particularly if exploring lots of feelings and underlying emotions is deemed necessary for the client. For those who would benefit from CBT, clinicians at Madrigal strive to promote a unique and client-centered approach to disrupt the cycle of negative thinking.
