The first step is finding the root of the problem in order to learn the skills to overcome the issue. With guidance from your counsellor, you will develop skills that help manage the problem and regain control over situations.

What can I expect from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)?

Your counsellor will help you set goals  and work towards meeting those goals through practice.  You will learn tools and will work on solutions together.  The tools you develop will be specific to your particular situation and are built to effectively deal with the them.  So, CBT IS highly personal.  This is another reason why being matched to the right therapist is key to a good experience through CBT.
