CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy)
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of boosting one’s happiness while combating negative emotions, behaviors and thoughts. CBT is short term, and goal oriented. Most emotions problems can be fixed within five to ten months. It combines both behavioral therapies along with psychotherapy. The process isn’t only used to treat one problem you might be having. CBT gives you the method to apply the principles to whatever you may need in order to find a solution.
CBT will encourage you to challenge irrational assumptions in your life and change negative patterns in your life for the better. It can help treat anyone who becomes trapped in irrational assumptions. These are assumptions that end up trapping you in continuous cycles of anxiety that create self-doubt.
What is CBT?

How Does EMDR Therapy Work?
With EMDR, we search out the unresolved memories that are tied to your current symptoms or discomfort. Then one by one, we revisit them and have another chance to understand them and resolve them. This time in a way that we are prepared and it is not overwhelming. After each memory is resolved, any new experiences that happen now will not cause those old things to come back up from the past. So, once we are done with EMDR, any uncomfortable feelings, negative thoughts about yourself, and even unwanted responses will probably get much better. With EMDR, instead of providing tools to deal with your problem (like in regular talk therapy), we will resolve the problem – the unresolved memories. As each memory is resolved, the unwanted emotions, negative beliefs, and symptoms that go along with that memory often fade away.
