What is CBT?

CBT stands for cognitive behavioral therapy. It is a research-supported approach to therapy that relies on increasing self-awareness and developing strategies to cope with and process difficult emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. It may be used as part of therapy plans for a wide range of specific diagnoses or presenting concerns like disordered levels of anxiety, trauma recovery, stress related to life transitions, and more. You can explore basic information about CBT by clicking on the link below, and you should always feel free to get in touch with the team at The Center for CBT in New York City to discuss any questions you have about our services.

What is Somatic Experiencing?

Somatic experiencing is a body-centered therapy approach. You’ve likely experienced the adverse effects that feelings like anxiety have on the body. When we’re stressed, we may have elevated blood pressure. Anxiety can cause an upset stomach. Depression often leads to fatigue and body aches. That’s because certain emotional responses trigger our bodies to enter an elevated state of response, which you may have heard called fight, flight, or freeze. When people experience chronic stress, anxiety, or hold onto unprocessed trauma, they can be stuck in this fight, flight, or freeze state. At The Center for CBT in New York City, we offer somatic experiencing therapy to release this pent-up survival energy from the body, allowing us to experience a state of relief and calm.

What is Individual Therapy?

Therapy is a form of treatment where people meet with a therapist to resolve challenging emotions, complicated thoughts, problematic behaviors, or difficulties in relationships, career, and other aspects of life. When you partner with a therapist, you can move beyond past struggles, heal wounds left by trauma, and generally make the time to become the most fulfilled version of yourself. If this sounds like something you need, learn more about individual therapy sessions using the link below, and don’t hesitate to contact The Center for CBT in New York City to get started today.

What is Therapy for Quarter-Life Transitions?

Quarter-life transitions, sometimes called quarter-life crisis, is a time of change and fluctuation in most people’s lives. In the 20s and 30s, people have to work through a significant amount of change. Most people transition to true adulthood at this time, getting jobs, living alone or with roommates or romantic partners, starting families, and more. With this much change, there is often a higher level of stress. For those who are struggling with quarter-life transitions, the therapists at The Center for CBT in New York City are happy to offer support and guidance to help you develop strategies to manage worries and stresses and find greater levels of purpose, stability, and satisfaction.

What is Big "T" Trauma?

Trauma is any event (witnessed or experienced) that overwhelms an individual’s ability to process the experience. When this happens, the body holds onto a wound left by the traumatic experience, which can have numerous adverse physical, emotional, and cognitive effects. Big “T” trauma is usually one or a series of events where a person perceives they are in extreme danger. High risk career fields like military service, firefighting, and police are at the greatest risk for big “T” trauma, but it may also occur as the result of car accidents, domestic violence, assault, and other frightening experiences. Whatever type of trauma you’ve experienced, the results can be detrimental, but at The Center for CBT in New York City, our therapists can help you heal from past trauma and move forward.

What is Little "t" Trauma?

Trauma is any event or experience that a person’s mind or body is unable to process naturally. Big “T” trauma is easy to identify. Things like war, violence, and physical or sexual abuse that put a person in extreme danger are all consider big “T” trauma. Little “t” trauma can be more difficult to identify, but it has many of the same psychological and physiological effects as big “T” trauma. Sources of little “t” trauma can be things like fights with friends or loved ones, relationship conflict or breakdown, loss of home or financial stability, legal difficulties, or workplace issues. Whether you’re dealing with big “T” or little “t” trauma, the knowledgeable professionals at The Center for CBT in New York City are here to support you as you heal and renew your fulfilling life.
