In brief: See below...

Cognitive therapy is a treatment process that enables patients to correct false beliefs about self & others that can lead to negative moods and behaviors.
Of course, something about the therapeutic relationship itself, i believe, adds to the healing process as well... In a way, healing happens while we're doing all the other things...
