CBT And Therapy

Hello,

A lot of you here has mentioned CBT and I recently found out what it means. My therapy sessions sound almost exactly like CBT but I never knew there was a difference.. Is there a difference between CBT and a regular therapy session? I have been in therapy for a few years now and it was always like this. I read that CBT should only last about 14 weeks and I've been doing it for years.

I am a bit confused..
So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be.

Your therapist could be using CBT as part of your treatment or a modified version of it. I guess what matters most is whether it works for you.

Still, a good question to ask the therapist.

Forgot to say - Yes you're right. CBT is supposed to take place in a set period of time.
