What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?
CBT is considered the “gold standard”  of therapy for managing anxiety. CBT was developed by psychiatrist Aaron Beck in the 1960s. He noticed that his clients often engaged in destructive thought patterns that negatively affected their feelings and behaviors. He reasoned that if they could change the stories they told themselves, their resulting feelings and behaviors might change, too.
The founding principle of CBT is that we are governed more by our perceptions of reality than by reality itself, and so by changing our perceptions, we can feel entirely differently than we did before.
Try to focus on the facts (who, what, when, where). By being brief and specific, the better you’ll understand the emotions and reactions that followed. This allows you to separate the situation and your emotions.
