We all have thoughts and beliefs that aren’t healthy for us. Sometimes, our feelings and behaviors cause us problems at home and at work.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is based on the concept that our thoughts cause our feelings and behaviors, not other people or events in our lives. Since we control our thoughts, we can change them and feel better, even if the situation does not change.
