Is a Guided CBT Program the right therapy for me?
- Participate when and where it suits you
- Improve your resiliency by learning new skills
- Rigorous clinical trials prove CBT’s effectiveness
Do you want to take an active role in your therapy? Do you enjoy doing “homework” – things like readings and exercises that help you learn skills to improve your resilience and how you cope? If so, then CBT may be a great fit for you.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a time-limited, problem-focused, and goal-oriented form of therapy. It looks at how the way we think about things can affect our feelings and behaviours. CBT helps us learn how to change negative cycles of thoughts and behaviours so we can function better, in order to improve our quality of life. Rigorous clinical trials have proven CBT’s effectiveness over a number of decades.
And our Guided CBT program is delivered 100% online – through your laptop, phone or tablet. So you can participate when and were you want. There are no appointments to keep – our Guided CBT Program works on your schedule!
What questions do you have?
MindBeacon Guided Programs are available to all Canadians, age 16 years or older. Guided Programs can help you tackle a wide range of issues, including depression, anxiety, panic, PTSD, stress and many other concerns that impact your well-being. But MindBeacon IS NOT a crisis service. If you’re ever in crisis, please phone ‘911’ immediately or visit your nearest hospital emergency room. Your safety is absolutely the most important thing to us.
It starts with your assessment, to better understand the issues and challenges you’re facing. From there, we create a unique treatment plan and assign a dedicated registered therapist to oversee your progress. Each time you visit, you’ll have readings, activities and check-ins that will help you develop new skills and let us better understand how you’re progressing. Remember: Your therapist will always be there for you throughout the process via messaging.
You are paired with one therapist for the duration of your Guided Program, and they are dedicated to your progress from beginning to end.
Your therapist will tailor a course of therapy based on your unique needs, selecting readings and activities that will help you develop new skills. As you work through the activities, your therapist will review your progress, provide encouragement and advice, as well as new perspectives to consider. You interact with your therapist via secure messaging through the MindBeacon digital therapy platform, and they will always respond within two business days.
Every Guided Program is personalized and unique. Your therapist will provide a tailored and progressive set of readings and activities for you over the course of your therapy – things like learning worry management and relaxation techniques, exposure activities or thought records. The main goal for all these activities is to reflect on what you’re thinking, doing and feeling, and then help you learn strategies to help change these cycles for the better.
Yes – you get your own therapist, who will be dedicated to you throughout your care, and who will tailor your program from start to finish. MindBeacon therapists are registered mental health professionals who are experienced in providing CBT treatment online.
