Anxious? Obsessed? Depressed? Don't let it run your life
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an evidenced-based talking therapy that can be used to treat a wide range of psychological problems. CBT can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. It is based on the concept that thoughts, feelings, behaviours and physical sensations are all interconnected and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap you in a vicious cycle. During treatment you will learn straightforward easy-to-use techniques to help break this ‘vicious cycle’ and look at practical ways to help improve your state of mind on a daily basis. This is a time-limited therapy that focuses on the ‘here and now’ and deals with the past only when it is essential for treatment. Whilst the sessions are used to learn new skills, time between sessions is used to further practice and implement those skills in everyday situations through homework assignments.
Cognetica center is one of the leading CBT centers in Israel, that was founded by Dr. Danny Derby (Cognetica's clinical director), a prominent CBT clinical psychologist. Cognetica's professional guidelines focus on evidenced-based treatments, that is, psychotherapy protocols that were found to be effective across studies in reducing specific psychological symptoms. Our staff consists of psychologists who use mainly, but not exclusively, a cognitive-behavioral approach to therapy. Naturally, each therapist carries a unique therapy style, professional experience and theoretical expertise (e.g., clinical health, biofeedback, long-term therapy). Those factors are than considered when we match the most suitable therapist for the client's special requirements, needs and challenges.
