Is CBT Right For You?

Although many people can benefit from CBT, not everyone finds it helpful. You might find that it just doesn't suit you, or doesn't meet your needs.

There are a lot of different models of therapy and more research needs to be done on what works when and for whom. You can talk to your doctor about which treatment is most suitable for you.

Find Out If CBT Is Right For You

Before deciding to have CBT, it might be helpful to think about the following:

  • Is short-term therapy right for me? If you have severe or complex problems, you may find a short-term therapy like CBT is less helpful. 
  • Am I comfortable thinking about my feelings? CBT can involve becoming aware of your anxieties and emotions. Initially, you may find this process uncomfortable or distressing.
  • Do I have a clear problem to solve? You may find CBT is less suitable if you feel generally unhappy or unfulfilled, but don't have troubling symptoms or a particular aspect of your life you want to work on.
