In brief: A Therapeutic Method
Cognitive therapy (ct) is a type of psychotherapy that could be classified under the broader rubric of cognitive-behavioral therapies.
Ct or cbt involves the therapist and the patient working together to revise problematic thinking patterns that lead to emotional and behavioral problems. This is essential because one's beliefs affect one's view of self and one's prospects for future happiness, etc.

In brief: Agree with Dr Smith
Cognitive therapy was initially developed by dr beck 30+ years ago.
One of his first students was dr beck. His book "feeling good" is a very good resource to help you learn the concepts of cognitive therapy even if you are not able to find a therapist to help you, but a therapist can help you use it effectively.
