Cognitive Behavioral Therapy


Recommended Posts

Has anyone had any success with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy? When I took my daughter to her Neuro she recommended this rather then medication but I am having trouble finding someone who specializes in my area..........My daughter is 10 and has motor tics, ( I think Pandas) mostly eyes rolling up and she also has anxiety.

Any info would be great......

hi hermom

 

yes, my son had CBT some years back to help him with his OCD/anxiety/phobias and we were very pleased with the results, especially as the therapist provided him with the tools of training to now help himself

 

I cant stress enough tho how important it is for your to FIRST interview the therapist yourself to be sure that this is a kind and compassionate person. CBT is just what it suggests.....it helps people to understand and work through their actions/emotions etc ...in the care of a therapist who has the right attitude, this is by far one of the best treatments ...but if a therapist is domineering or impatient or lacking in deep compassion then it can be traumatic.

 

I have a useful sites/info sticky on the OCD forum here that has info on CBT
