At Greater Buffalo Centers for Dizziness & Balance, serving the Cheektowaga, West Seneca, and Orchard Park, NY areas, we understand that these problems can often cause stress and anxiety in patients. Being stressed or anxious about a situation can further provoke feelings of dizziness and cause your balance to shift. While medication can assist, cognitive therapy can also help. Our team offers cognitive therapy as a meaningful, drug-free way to help our patients combat these issues.
Cognitive therapy involves talking with a therapist during short sessions taking place over a fixed amount of time. It is focused on a specific goal as well as providing you with the tools needed to solve your current problems. Your thought pattern can affect your emotions and behaviors. Cognitive therapy helps reframe negative thoughts into positive thoughts and feelings. There are quite a few techniques that are used with cognitive therapy and depending on your case, your therapist will determine which strategy is best for you.
Cognitive therapy helps:
Give patients hope- It allows them to feel good about their future.
Develop self-esteem- As you suffer from these problems, you may experience low self-esteem. Cognitive therapy can help you develop more confidence in your own abilities.
Let patients relax- During cognitive therapy, patients learn to control or regulate their responses to triggers and reduce symptoms.
Gain control of thoughts- This is the main benefit of cognitive therapy.
Cognitive therapy is highly effective, but it may not be suitable for everyone. Or, it might need to be used alongside other forms of therapy for the best results.
