You are right - I was responding to Fleeting Flutterby, but I appreciate your response. I guess I would disagree with you - yes, it might seem like CBT is something you can do on your own. At the same time, I think it is a lot harder than most people think. If it was so easy, wouldn't most people have coping skills? And therapists have developed processes and approaches to help ensure success. I don't think they are so easy to replicate. More broadly, I believe patients of any kind need to think about what they want to get out of therapy before they just start seeing a therapist. Now there are times when you start seeing a therapist and over time, it is determined that something else is needed - like CBT. But to the degree possible, patients need to think about this before entering into therapy.
