I have specialized training through Emory University's Cognitively-based Compassionate Training program, and I utilize an integrative approach that incorporates a client-centered model with mindfulness-based, third wave cognitive behavioral therapies such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT).
Over-identification with a particular self or selves produces so much suffering in our lives, particularly when we can't live up to those unrealistic, idealized versions of who we think we should be. An inherent promise of the therapeutic relationship, however, is that it offers us the possibility of grace - the opportunity to be accepted and valued for the splendid mess that we are. This is why I strive in my practice to connect individuals with the "curious paradox" that Carl Rogers spoke of - namely, "when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change."

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.

If you're looking for CBT therapy in Athens or for an Athens CBT therapist these professionals provide cognitive behavioral therapy, cbt group therapy, cbt therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy.
