If you google the effectiveness of “XXXX” (depression, anxiety, PTSD, etc., just put in any symptoms), you will found tons of articles finding the evidence supporting Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I also have many clients told me that they had received CBT for years.
“However, it did make sense when I talked to my therapist, but I just can’t make myself feel differently.” ~ my clients said.
Why? Shouldn’t you feel “better” if “it makes sense” after the talk therapy?
Does change how you see things really change how you feel?
