    Many people enjoy working with a CBT therapist if you are:

    • Tired of a therapist who is just going to listen and not give you any concrete tools.
    • Involved in a type of therapy that is confusing and you cannot understand the approach or where the sessions are going.
    • Finished with having the powerless mindset towards the life you dreamed about.
    • Wanting to be challenged to grow to your best self.
    • Goal oriented and have something specific you want to accomplish.
    • Looking to have concrete takeaways from therapy that you can use throughout your lifetime.
    • Ready to have improved confidence in how you are approaching the different areas of your life.

    With Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in Minneapolis, you’ll be able to adjust the thoughts that directly influence your emotions and behavior. This adjustment process is referred to as cognitive reconstructing, which happens through different CBT techniques. CBT therapy gets straight to addressing the powerless feeling and gives you a more effective way of handling stress.

    Some CBT techniques are:

    • Mindset exercises
    • Reframing thoughts or beliefs
    • Relaxation
    • Meditation
    • Mindfulness
    • Social, physical and thinking exercises
    • Problem solving or other solutions oriented exercises
    • Emotional regulation skills
    • Activity scheduling
    • Visualizations

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in Minneapolis is much more than sitting and talking about whatever comes to mind during a session. CBT therapy sessions are structured to ensure that the therapist and the person in therapy are focused on the different goals of each session, which in turn ensures that each and every session is productive.

    By fully participating in the weekly exercises, CBT can give you an improved sense of confidence, a reduction in stress, better decision making skills, and a way of filtering out those negative thoughts.

    How often does CBT in Minneapolis help?

    No therapist can make you a guarantee, but I have seen a majority of the people that I work with who practiced the CBT exercises weekly, have an improved outlook on how they were approaching their stressors.
