I had CBT about a year ago and to be honest I wasn't impressed at all.
Before I went along I assumed that it would entail discussing specific ways to counter my social anxiety and panic attacks. For example: When you feel like this, do this and it'll calm you down. Instead we just discussed how we're experiencing a 'fight or flight' reaction to everyday situations.........I mean, I already knew that. I thought we'd be taught HOW to combat the anxiousness, not WHAT it is. Like most of you on here I've read up about my condition, so we all already know what it is lol.
I came away after 8 sessions no better than before I began :/
