CBT focuses on changing how you think about yourself, your relationships, and your environment. It is the most common form of therapy and has been shown to be effective in treating anxiety, depression, eating disorders, substance abuse, and other mental health problems. It can also help people with chronic pain manage their symptoms more effectively
