  1. This is my kind of therapy, know one to ask you stupid questions you don't know the answer to, and know one to piss you off for the rest of the week.

  2. A fantastic little video, do keep them coming! Having read a lot about the benefits of CBT, on sites such as, it is amazing to see just how much it can help. It is also incredible to hear of the various circumstances that it can be used in, such as quitting smoking. Anybody looking to overcome a fear or addiction should certainly consider cognitive behavioural therapy.

  3. I had a severe social anxiety and i overcame it with just paying attention to my thoughts. I learned catch my negative messages of my head. That's all…

  4. Most of my anxiety symptoms come from nowhere so I feel the somatic symptoms well before I am able to reroute the thoughts.

  5. you have a very calming voice and i get a very welcoming feeling from you 🙂 you're really pretty btw!

  6. I actively chose not to read anything about CBT, I took on my own therapy and tailored a regime just for myself. When I joined NAMI-NYC and became a public speaker, I found out my method was similar to CBT…I wish I had thought of it sooner and wrote a book haha

  7. You think it's the thoughts that casue the reaction, eh? I think the thoughts are a side-effect that give you a hint as to why you have the reaction.

  8. i've looked into CBT to help me deal with the paranoid and depressed thoughts i get sometimes but every time i get to the point of looking into it i tell myself it won't help and i end up like this and don't do it, got any tips to help me get started :/

  9. I'm learning this now with my trauma therapist. I have bpd, cptsd & disassociation. It's very hard. I just found your channel & Im so grateful! I can't wait to show my husband your videos on depression. My childhood is a blur. Ask your what your feeling & why?
