What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?
CBT is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on identifying and challenging negative thought patterns and behaviors. By addressing the underlying beliefs and attitudes that contribute to low self-confidence, CBT can help you create lasting, positive change in your life.
How CBT Boosts Self-Confidence:
