Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is based on the theory that our thoughts cause our feelings and behavior, not other people or situations.  The benefit of this is that we can change the way we think to feel and act better even if the situation does not change. CBT typically includes a limited number of sessions and is structured with the focus being to hep the client achieve the goals they have set.  CBT  helps you become aware of negative or inaccurate thinking and helps you view the challenging situations more clearly and respond to them in a more effective way.

The goal of CBT at the Brain Performance Center is to modify everyday thoughts and behaviors and influence emotions in a positive way, by eliminating the negative self talk that produces irrational behavior.  We help you learn to discriminate between your own thoughts and the events that occurred in reality, helping you to get the facts straight. The thought is, the most direct route to changing dysfunctional emotions and behaviors is to modify the inaccurate and faulty thinking.

Research supports the use of CBT with the conditions that we treat at the Brain Performance Center.  For instance, research shows CBT to be the first line of treatment for insomnia.  We have developed a Insomnia Sleep Recovery Program based on a neuro-cognitive model.  Hundreds of research studies have validated the cognitive model of depression and of anxiety.

As with our other treatment modalities, CBT is educative, aims to teach you to be your own therapist. We want you to be able to set goals, identify and evaluate your thoughts and beliefs so that you can plan effective behavioral changes in your life when needed.

Leigh Richardson, LPC, NCC,  will  use CBT to identify the behavior and emotions that are driving dysfunctional actions. We use neurofeedback, also known as neurotherapy,  to re-pattern brain waves, biofeedback to re-set the brain and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to examine behavior patterns and identify a balanced approach to handling everyday situations.

All decisions made regarding your medication should be made with your prescribing physician. That being stated, a large portion of patients pursue Bio/Neurofeedback with the goal of being weaned off their medication, or the amount being reduced.

There are no side effects associated with Biofeedback or Neurofeedback. Although, patients often report better sleep and focus, decreased impulsiveness and a relaxed mood. In fact, these are the primary reasons Neurofeedback is chosen as an alternative to medication.
