Whether they occur consistently or sporadically, depression or anxiety can make daily life feel difficult or even impossible. And despite the progress you’ve made in therapy, you may find that you haven’t been able to fully overcome these obstacles or make the changes that you want for your life.
Such experiences are familiar to me, as I’ve specialized in the treatment of anxiety and depression for more than 15 years. I’ve found that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) can be helpful to people in areas of their life where prior therapies have failed. CBT isn’t a new approach for coping with anxiety and depression, but it is known to be the most effective.
In Retrain Your Brain: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in 7 Weeks I’ve outlined a simple, practical seven-week plan, while offering real, tangible relief from anxiety and depression.
- Understand the principles of CBT
- Learn fundamental CBT skills
- Practice applying your new CBT skills to your current, real-life challenges
- Create a CBT “tool-kit” on which you can rely time and time again
