We all have our own way of thinking and acting. Throughout our lives we have also learned a certain behavior. If you suffer from anxiety or eating disorders, compulsions, addictions, problems at work or depression, you can learn to act and think differently through behavioral therapy. With behavioral therapy we tackle your problem in the long term.
What is behavioral therapy?
Cognitive behavioral therapy is based on learning psychology. It is a form of psychotherapy, more specifically directive therapy, in which a psychologist does not let you sit back to encourage you to think about yourself, but also tries to move you into concrete action. In behavioral therapy, advice is offered, based on scientific data, on how you can tackle your complaints. The basic principle is that you have learned in your learning process, for example, to be overly afraid of something, because you have to learn fear. Sometimes there are mistakes in that learning process and these are corrected with behavioral therapy. How? Our psychologist creates new learning experiences so that the meaning is adjusted.
Behavioral therapy: an effective approach
What does behavioral therapy actually mean? A psychologist is based on the behavioral therapeutic process consisting of the inventory (diagnostics), problem definition, the treatment plan, the implementation and the effect measurement. These applied psychotherapy techniques were examined in (inter) national studies and were found to be effective. With a phobia, for example, anxiety situations are sought and we learn you step by step through your fear. Furthermore, each individual behavior therapy or group therapy is evaluated with questionnaires. In this way we can objectively determine your personal evolution.
