In my experience, cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) has shown itself effective for long lasting relief or management from the symptoms of the following:

SOCIAL ANXIETY

SOCIAL PHOBIA

DEPRESSION

PANIC ATTACKS

ESTEEM ISSUES

ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION

INTERNET ADDICTION

SEX ADDICTION

IDENTITY ISSUES

INSOMNIA

Here are some CBT basics & Common thinking errors:

CBT Primary Process (Prior to treatment)

Reframe + Build Awareness = change your perception!

Six common thinking traps:

  1. All-or-nothing thinking: You view situations in black or white terms that are absolute
  2. Over-generalization: You view one negative event as evidence of problems never ending
  3. Discounting the positives: You insist that your accomplishments or positives events don’t exist
  4. Emotional reasoning: You reason from how you feel, rather then what you think
  5. Labeling: Rather then admitting your mistakes you label yourself a fool, failure, loser, fat, broken, or tortured.
  6. Projection: assuming people around you think negative of you.
In addition to using CBT in my practice and in keeping with the latest research; mindfulness therapy is used regularly. Should you wish to engage in mindfulness practice you will become keenly aware of the present moment. You will learn tools to slow down the present and get a stronger awareness on what your process is, and eventually this self awareness will assist in your self governance over your issues. Mindfulness is also been shown to be effective in giving you greater control over your physical body, and increase your emotional intelligence.
