Cognitive-behavioral therapy is one of the most effective forms of psychological intervention available to psychologists. It is a type of psychotherapy that has a lot of scientific evidence in favor of its usefulness in treating psychological problems such as anxiety or depression, and that is why many people seek to be treated by experts in this field of work.

If you are interested in getting to know some of the most recommended professionals in the Spanish capital who attend to patients using this method of working, read on: here you will find a selection of the best cognitive-behavioral therapy clinics in Madrid , each with a brief description.

The best cognitive-behavioral therapy clinics

Cognitive-behavioral therapy bases its effectiveness on the fact that it has a double action: on the one hand, it helps to make progress in the way we perceive reality and think about ourselves and what surrounds us, and on the other hand, it makes us improve by contributing to the adoption of life habits (i.e., behaviors) that are consistent with this new way of thinking and interpreting the world.

Thus, by intervening in the way of thinking and the way of behaving and making both psychological factors be oriented towards a healthy, positive and constructive life, one learns to manage the psychological discomfort generated by certain experiences and memories.

Given the effectiveness of this form of applied psychology, there are many psychology centers based in Madrid that offer cognitive-behavioral therapy. Here we will see some of the most recommended ones.
