In brief: Depends on issues

As might be in any psychotherapy, a lot depends on your concerns along with what you are like.
One thing you can expect is a period of time describing yourself, a bit of your history and your present circumstances. Then, there'll be a strategy time with some tasks for you to try and report the effects. Then, tweaking to improve. Cycles of trial and error to find understanding and solutions. Best!

In brief: CBT

In contrast to other forms of psychotherapy, cognitive therapy is usually more focused on the present, more time-limited, and more problem-solving oriented.
In addition, patients learn specific skills that they can use for the rest of their lives. These skills involve identifying distorted thinking, modifying beliefs, relating to others in different ways, and changing behaviors.
