CBT - Age Group?

What's the typical age group of people enrolling for CBT?

In what way has it helped you?

As far as I know, people of all ages do CBT. I'm not sure if there's a typical age.

In support groups, however, I noticed that most members are older than me. Lots of them age 35 and up. That was the downside of going to support groups, for me. I felt like the oddball. The group members were very kind and welcoming, but I wished I could also talk to people of my same age, going through similar life issues as me.

I went to one group that had all ages. CBT really has helped me a lot, but mostly just the stuff I do on my own. It enabled me to go back to school and get over my agoraphobia.

re: CBT - Age Group?

The CBT group I did was full of people from all different ages.

Keep in mind though, depending where you're doing it, not everyone in the group will have SA. CBT is used for all types of anxiety disorders. Half the people in my group didn't have SA, but other anxiety disorders.

just one more song to slay this earth
and i can't explain myself just what it's worth
it was all i had, but not all i'd need
and i can't escape the fact that i still bleed
