2. What is cognitive therapy?
Cognitive therapy is one of the few forms of psychotherapy that has been scientifically tested and found to be effective in over three hundred clinical trials for many different disorders. In contrast to other forms of psychotherapy, cognitive therapy is usually more focused on the present, more time-limited, and more problem-solving-oriented.
Indeed, much of what the patient does is solve current problems. In addition, patients learn specific skills that they can use for the rest of their lives. These skills involve identifying distorted thinking, modifying beliefs, relating to others in different ways, and changing behaviors.
3. How can I make the best use of therapy?
One way is to ask your therapist how you might be able to supplement your psychotherapy with cognitive therapy readings, workbooks, client pamphlets, etc. A second way is to prepare carefully for each session, thinking about what you learned in the previous session and jotting down what you want to discuss in the next session.
A third way to maximize therapy is to make sure that you try to bring the therapy session into your everyday life. A good way of doing this is by taking notes at the end of each session or recording the session or a summary of the session on audiotape.
Make sure that you and the therapist leave enough time in the therapy session to discuss what would be helpful for you to do during the coming week and try to predict what difficulties you might have in doing these assignments so your therapist can help you before you leave the session.

5. What does mindfulness feel like?
It depends on your experience at the time. Mindfulness isn’t one particular state or experience, but rather a deepening into the feeling of the experience you are having right at this moment – which could be pleasant or unpleasant.
Mindfulness is not designed to change our experiences as much as changing our relationship to our experience so it is not so stressful and problematical. One thing is for sure though, you can only experience what mindfulness is like by actually doing it.
6. Is online therapy effective?
A 2018 study published in the Journal of Anxiety Disorders determined that online cognitive behavioral therapy is “effective, acceptable, and practical health care.”
The study found that online cognitive behavioral therapy was just as effective as a face-to-face treatment for major depression, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder.
Many people enjoy the convenience of online therapy. They find it saves time since they don’t have to commute to appointments.
