Questions About Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Let’s go over some of the most commonly asked questions that people have about CBT. Our Avalon Malibu staff are here to provide you with information if your questions aren’t answered below.

Who Invented CBT?

This therapy method was invented by Dr. Aaron T. Beck. It was invented so that people could better understand their thoughts and how their thoughts might be impacting other areas of their lives. This form of therapy can be extremely powerful and it’s one that should be considered whether you’re just starting your mental health journey or you’ve been in therapy for years.

Who Can Do CBT?

Anyone can do CBT! It’s important that you find the right therapist to guide you through the process and it’s also important that the person participating in the therapy is willing and open. Remember that you’ll only get out of it what you put into it!

When Can I Start CBT?

Starting CBT can be as simple as finding a therapist who utilizes this method and booking an appointment with them. In your intake session, be sure to mention that this is the type of therapy that you’re interested in. Remember that not every therapist is a right fit for everyone, so it’s important that you research each therapist you find and consider if they could be the right fit for your mental health situation.
