CBT is more clinically researched than other types of psychotherapy. Studies show that CBT is the most effective psychotherapy for anxiety disorders (panic attacks, specific phobias, social phobia), depression, hypochondria, obsessive compulsive disorder, eating disorders, etc.

Treatment is individual and depends on the type of problem, the motivation of the client, and the commitment of the person to the treatment to implement the techniques in practice. However, CBT is time-shorter than unlike other types of psychotherapy and the results are visible between 6 and 20 sessions.

The therapist teaches the client techniques and methods of dealing with the non-functional thoughts and behaviors that the client applies in practice and in the form of homework, whereby changes occur in the emotional sphere and the functionality of the personality. The relationship between the therapist and the client is based on cooperation, and through regular monitoring the progress of the therapy is monitored.

The goal is to allow the gradual exposure of stress stimulus (systemic desensitisation) in a shorter time, thus achieving a faster treatment effect.

One session lasts 30 to 45 minutes. A psychotherapist runs exposure through a computer program and is in constant communication with the client to help him cope best with anxiety.

In front of VRT an assessment of the problem is made and psychotherapeutic sessions are conducted on which the client learns techniques for dealing with fear.
