What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)?

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is as defined by PsychologyToday:
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that treats problems and boosts happiness by modifying dysfunctional emotions, behaviors, and thoughts. Unlike traditional Freudian psychoanalysis, which probes childhood wounds to get at the root causes of conflict, CBT focuses on solutions, encouraging patients to challenge distorted cognitions and change destructive patterns of behavior.


What is Mindfulness?

The most widely used definition of mindfulness comes from Jon Kabat-Zinn: "Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally.".


What is Self Care?

Conscious and continual, love and attention for yourself. The constant repetition of habits that soothe you emotionally, physically and mentally.
