Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is based on the use of therapeutic methods to change the way of thinking and behavior of the client to improve the quality of his life.
The most important features of the psychotherapy process are cooperation between the therapist and the patient, focus on finding a solution to the problem and focus on the here and now. Therapy is limited in time, based on clearly defined therapeutic goals. CBT is a form of therapy that has been widely tested and proven effective in research. For some disorders (e.g. anxiety or addiction), it is the first method of treatment.
