Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) a specialized form of psychotherapy, is a highly effective approach to the treatment of many emotional and behavioral problems. It is solution-focused and often involves changing life-long patterns of self-defeating, negative, and occasionally catastrophic thinking. This approach places emphasis on achieving real change in thoughts, beliefs, feelings and behaviors, so as to yield notable improvement in one’s quality of life. The following Problems, Issues and Disorders are readily treatable within the context of Cognitive Behavior Therapy.

Sleeping Disorders are generally characterized in three ways: insomnias, hypersomnolence and parasomnias. Insomnia refers to difficulty falling asleep, difficulty remaining asleep and early morning awakening; Hypersomnolence refers to excessive drowsiness or inability to remain awake; Parasomnias, which are disorders associated with sleep and/or disorders which interfere with sleep, include sleep sleepwalking, sleep talking, bed-wetting, night terrors, nightmares, periodic leg movements of sleep, narcolepsy, cataplexy and sleep apnea.
