What are TCCs?

Cognitive and behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of brief therapy based onknowledge from thescientific psychology.

Patient and psychotherapist work together to identify and understand problems based on three psychological components of the experience of a situation: emotions, associated thoughts and behavior.

This psychological approach focuses on the difficulties of the present, while taking into account their historical causes.

The therapist gradually accompanies the change by offering to experiment with different behaviors and practical exercises to get out of the vicious circles that perpetuate and aggravate psychological suffering.

It also provides tools to better understand, question and qualify the ways of thinking at the origin of difficult emotions. This is done in consultation with the patient, according to what he wishes and what is possible to put in place.

In addition, a CBT aims to support the person in acquiring useful skills to face new difficulties.

CBTs are indicated for anyone in pain: child, adolescent, adult, and elderly person, wishing to regain an independent lifestyle and sufficiently motivated to invest in a care program that requires involvement during and between sessions.
