Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is often confused with Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), however they are not the same.
What is CBT
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a therapeutic approach which was originally conceived to help with depression, but it is now commonly used for various problems. It works by solving current issues the client may have and change their negative thinking and behavior.
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. It is most commonly used to help with anxiety and depression, but can be useful for many other mental and physical health problems.
In contrast to Mindfulness Therapy, Cognitive Therapy tries to alter the content of beliefs.
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
