Psychologists attach great importance to thoughts. The way we speak to ourselves, the way we interpret certain situations, will be responsible for how we are going to feel and how we are going to act. Since thoughts provoke our emotions and behaviors , we cannot ignore certain erroneous beliefs that can play tricks on us.
WHAT IS COGNITIVE THERAPY?
Cognitive Therapy is a powerful therapeutic method designed to control the negative and irrational thoughts that guide our behavior. It offers us steps to follow that will call into question the credibility of our dysfunctional thoughts, allowing us to seek more suitable alternative thoughts. It does not consist of changing the way of thinking but of thinking in more rational terms and in keeping with reality.
In this way, once the thoughts are adjusted, our emotion (how we feel) and our behavior (how we act) will also be according to the situations.
Our Psychologist will guide you through questions and answers towards an internal dialogue, which we call cognitive discussion, which will allow you to discern between adequate, rational and useful thoughts or negative, erroneous and poorly adjusted thoughts. The ultimate goal will be to change those interpretations that we conclude as inappropriate for others that are more useful and adaptive, in order to reduce the anxiety or sadness that they cause us and to be able to act in the direction of solving the problems that have arisen.
