Find Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) Therapists & Counselors in Springfield, IL.

 

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy that focuses on understanding and improving your thoughts, patterns of thinking, and behaviors. CBT is often focused on specific problems you are experiencing and practical solutions to those problems. It is a great tool for when you are feeling overwhelmed or trapped in a negative cycle.

Cognitive behavioral therapists conduct CBT in an office setting (in-person or online) through one-on-one conversations. This type of therapy can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, from depression and eating disorders to addictions and relationship issues, and is particularly great for developing new skills and perspectives.

Whether you are located in downtown Springfield, the suburbs of Springfield, other nearby places such as Florissant, Peoria, or anywhere else in Illinois, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

The Benefits of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

There are many benefits that come along with CBT, and they include:

  • Improved coping skills
  • Enhanced communication skills
  • Healthier thought processes
  • Increased self-esteem
  • Emotional support
  • Improved overall functioning

If you’re curious about CBT or other types of therapy and want to know which is right for your needs, read this article: What type of therapy is best for me?

CBT May Be the Answer

There are several types of therapy, but not every type of therapy will be best for you. CBT therapy may be a good fit for you if you suffer from conditions like:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Relationship Conflict
  • Self-esteem
  • Eating Disorders
  • Insomnia
  • Substance use

CBT is not a good fit if you have trouble with rational or logical thinking, such as if you have a brain injury or severe learning or intellectual disorders. It is also not a great fit for people who don’t want to fully participate in therapy, as it requires active involvement with your therapist.
