In today’s world, more and more people are struggling with depression, anxiety, addiction and a whole range of similar mental health problems. In most of the cases, people are not even aware of the fact that they are fighting with some kind of mental illness.

Managing these problems is not an easy task and ignoring these problems calls for unwanted actions and severe consequences, but fortunately we have Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help people manage their problems by making simple changes in the way they think and behave.

It is always believed that talking your heart out to someone helps in relieving the pressure that builds inside the human brain. Talking is a very effective therapy at times which can reduce the negative and unwanted thoughts from people’s mind.

Cognitive behavioral therapy is also a talk therapy to reduce or remove the symptoms of mental and physical health disorders. It is used to treat and improve the mental health condition of people.

CBT has been existing for a long time in different shapes and forms. Traditionally it was done by connecting people to therapists or psychotherapists face-to-face multiple times in one-to-one session or in the group to understand their mental situation and provide treatment accordingly.

CBT is a very effective short-term therapy technique that helps people overcome their immediate problems by changing their negative thought patterns. With the improvements in technology and the onset of the digital world, the CBT has taken the digital route to provide the same therapies in a digital form like applications over web and mobiles. 

The Digital Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has seen a sharp rise worldwide after the recent COVID-19 pandemic. As opposed to physical one-to-one meeting, the digital format has many advantages which are behind the rise of DCBT. The accessibility is a key differentiator here and it’s more convenient to people compared to traditional face-to-face sessions.
