The word cognitive means the way our brain processes information from all of our senses, and from our stored memory. It is how you think, make decisions, and react.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy explores your decisions and responses and helps you to find ways to redirect or rebuild unhealthy ones. This creates positive behaviours (or actions). A CBT therapist can guide you towards creating your own practical solutions. This can make it easier to manage PTSD in your daily life.
