Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or CBT is a short-term, problem-focused form of behavioural treatment that helps children, youth and adults realize the differences between beliefs, thoughts, and feelings, and to develop strategies to free them from unhelpful patterns of behaviour.
CBT is grounded in the belief that it is a person’s perception of events – rather than the events themselves – that determine how he or she will feel and act in response.
Individual therapy rates range from $220 - $385 per hour.

With CBT, a goal of Therapy is to adjust the thoughts that directly influence your or your child’s emotions and behaviour. This adjustment process is referred to as Cognitive Reconstructing, which happens through different CBT techniques.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is much more than sitting and talking about whatever comes to mind during a therapy session. CBT sessions are structured to ensure the therapist and the person in treatment are focused on the different goals of each session, which in turn ensures each and every session is productive.
