Do I need CBT?


I used to experience anxiety, but now that my brain chemicals have been rebalanced (due to Effexor), I'm ok
My Doctor says medication is a short term solution, & what I really need is CBT, I don't get it

Try mindfulness meditation to calm down

get a copy of mark williams and danny penman book - finding peace in a frantic world - great introduction to mindfulness.

I do an hour plus unguided everyday and it works amazingly well if you stick with it.

I intend to keep taking the medication that resolves the chemical imbalances which cause depression / anxiety
I don't get what CBT is supposed to do for me
