CBT: cognitive behavioral therapy
Posted Sun Jan 08, 2017 06:06 PM
I have recently started therapy involving CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy). I was wondering if anyone has gone through this type of therapy before. So far I have had 3 sessions with one psychologist but I was told that sometimes not all psychologists are the right fit for each patient. So just last week I saw a second psychologist to kind of gauge whether I would be more comfortable with him. It is still early to tell. Anyway, I would appreciate to hear if anyone has gone through this. For years I have always relied on pharmacology to treat mental health problems, but I figured it is time for some talk therapy.

Did your therapist make you do homework? For example, my therapist has me list all the accomplishments I did for the day as well as events that trigger anxiety. An accomplishment can be something simple as having a shower and making my bed or chores or going to the gym. My therapist said that I would never leave a session with him without homework.

Yeah for some reason I feel more comfortable talking to women than men. Women for some reason seem more understanding and empathetic. But, I will try out the therapists I have and reevaluate from there.
