Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)

Cognitive Processing Therapy or CPT is a specific type of cognitive behavioural therapy that has proven especially effective for individuals struggling with trauma and PTSD. CPT allows people to challenge and restructure their negative thinking patterns that have resulted from trauma. This allows them to create a new understanding of the traumatic event, resulting in a reduction of the negative impacts on their life. 

CPT will help with:

  • Anger 
  • Anxiety 
  • Cognitive distortions 
  • Guilt 
  • Depression 
  • Hopelessness
  • Psychological distress 
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Disassociation 

If any of the above issues resonate with you, we encourage you to reach out to us and consider cognitive processing therapy. With the help of our highly skilled professionals, you can work on overcoming the negative effects of your trauma.

During sessions, you will be able to learn about PTSD and how CPT works. You will also have a chance to freely discuss your thoughts and feelings related to the traumatic event, often writing them down in an impact statement, and reflect. Additionally, you will learn effective and valuable ways to cope with your negative emotions and feelings. 

Throughout therapy, we will provide you with strong support and help you with areas of life where PTSD or trauma may have caused problems, such as self-esteem, relationships, trust, and feeling safe. 

Research shows that CPT is highly effective for PTSD, and its positive effects continue even after the treatment sessions are finished. People who have undergone CPT have experienced positive long-lasting changes, including increased trust in themselves and others, feeling safer, being happier, improving relationships, gaining a sense of control, and being able to handle negative emotions. 

If you're ready to make a positive change and overcome the impact of trauma, we encourage you to take the first step and reach out to us today. We're here to support you on your journey to healing and a better life.
