Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Cognitive behavioral therapy has been scientifically proven as an effective form of therapy for a wide range of psychological, psychosomatic and somatic diseases. Mental problems are interpreted as a consequence of unfavorable learning experiences, critical life events or of obstructive attitudes. Psychological disorders are treated between the poles of cognitions, emotions, physical symptoms and visible behavioral changes. At the same time, the focus is more on the concrete problem-solving in the presence, although continually the therapy will relate to personal past experiences, identifications and behavioural patterns. Furthermore, cognitive behavioural therapy is characterized by openness to a variety of new approaches and methods, the attempt for transparency and an active role of therapist as well as patient. The sessions are normally scheduled weekly.
