Cognitive behavioral therapy, most commonly known as CBT, is often deemed as the holy grail solution for things like depression and anxiety. And whilst I’m sure it works for a lot of people, there is not a one size fits all solution for issues that are personal to each individual.
Techniques such as relaxation and meditation can do wonders for some, but seem completely ridiculous to others. For example, I personally found imagining myself sat on a beach whilst listening to whale songs did not help my anxiety in any way shape or form.
It’s not your fault and if you feel that CBT sessions are not helping then make sure you let your doctor or therapist know. So, if you’re worrying that CBT may not or is not working for you, then don’t panic – there are many other things that you can try.
