CBT discuss

Posted by paulb on September 26, 2004, at 15:09:42


wow its been a long time since Ive been here. I wanted to write a short note on therapy as I have, in the last two months undergone seven cognitive/behavioural therapy sessions. i have had social phobia and depression for about ten years and only now has the therapy route panned out, having finally realised medication was no longer helpful. i suppose the main idea with CBT is changing cognitive distortions and also changing behaviour which is a pretty good rationale for progress. i sometimes feel that the therapy is having quite a profound effect. i feel that as I moved from a teenager to an adult with social anxiety the social anxiety grew with me and has become part of my character and in a sense now I feel comfortable with it to some degree even though i havent for two years been able to get on a bus or use the telephone and have relied on support services for considerable help. i would like the therapy perhaps to help me manage the social phobia rather than cure, which, at best may be the only reasonable hope but like i said it seems to have a big effect in how i think and feel. i would be interested in others peoples experiences with CBT regarding social phobia and/or depression.
