Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
CBT is a psychosocial intervention that aims to improve emotional health and well-being. CBT focuses on challenging and changing unhelpful thought patterns and behaviours, improving emotion regulation, and the development of personal coping strategies that target solving current problems.
Anxiety is an emotion characterized by feelings of tension, worried thoughts, and physical symptoms such as accelerated heart rate, difficulty breathing, and sweating. Some people with anxiety have recurring intrusive thoughts or concerns that compel them to behave in a specific way. Others may avoid certain situations out of fear or worry. For some, the fear and/or worrying can become overwhelming and manifest into a panic attack.
Depression is a mood disorder characterized by persistently low mood and a feeling of sadness and loss of interest. The causes of depression are not fully understood but are likely to be a complex combination of genetic, biological, environmental, and psychosocial factors.
Chronic insomnia is marked by difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, or by waking up too early. If it takes you 30 minutes or more to fall asleep, or if you're awake for 30 minutes or more during the night at least three times a week—for a month or more—you're suffering from insomnia.
Coping with the loss a loved one is one of life's greatest difficulties. If you have ever experienced the pain of mourning, you know that any way to ease the loss is welcomed. While our knowledge and study of grief continues to evolve, it's important to note that not everyone grieves the exact same way: people have their own pattern of grieving and outlets for grief.
Traumatic experiences often arouse strong, disturbing thoughts and feelings that may or may not abate on their own. It’s common immediately after a traumatic event to experience shock, disbelief, and/or denial. A person may undergo a range of emotional reactions, such as fear, anger, guilt, shame, feelings of helplessness and vulnerability, and even Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
