Frequently Asked Questions(FAQs)

FAQ's

Cognitive means the mind. Behavioral means the way we act in the world. When you put these two words together, CBT is a therapy where you discover what is getting in the way of accomplishing some of your goals. First, CBT does some unconscious exploration and finds out what kind of core beliefs (limiting beliefs) might be getting in your way. So there’s some psychodynamic psychotherapy in CBT, since there’s some exploration of your unconscious mind or blind spot. Second, after identifying these negative thoughts, patients are taught to reframe these negative thought patterns into more positive ones. Basically, how to not let these negativities bog us down from moving forward. Finally, CBT is based on developing skills to reframe, adapt and adjust these negative thinking patterns into more positive ones and integrate them into your daily routine so they become second nature. Dr. Datta also integrates life-coaching into CBT to make it more goal-oriented. The reason for this is that some people still have a negative stigma when it comes to the word psychotherapy. They say, “I’m not crazy; I don’t need that.” We all need someone to talk to and someone who can understand our emotional burdens. Life coaching involves CBT because, in life coaching, the provider needs to explore the blind spot of the patient to discover how the patient is getting in their own way. This is a psychodynamic psychotherapy or CBT technique, in and of itself. The provider explores what the patient might not know about themselves. There’s already a lot of CBT in life coaching; the term is just not used.

 

If you are getting stuck in a certain area of your personal or professional life and you’re confused about why, why do you keep getting fired from jobs? Why do you keep being unsuccessful in relationships, whether starting one or failing one? You are not crazy or sick if any of these things are happening to you, because these things happen to everyone. I’m sorry that this paragraph might sound negative, but this happens to all of us at certain times in our lives. We need a professional who can see both our conscious and unconscious minds to help us get out of our own way. We need a professional to direct us to being a better version of ourselves. There’s no shame in admitting that we need help in this practical sort of way. If we don’t, then we don’t really change in life. If we don’t, then we don’t evolve as people. Sure, we are the best people to know ourselves. However, since we are emotionally involved with certain things in our lives, whether it’s a job, a relationship or another endeavor, it is difficult for us to objectively see how we are sabotaging ourselves. Since we’re emotionally involved, we have a tough time letting that negativity go. In addition to providing psychodynamic psychotherapy and cognitive behavioral therapy, Dr. Datta also integrates life coaching to make this therapy even more practical. Dr. Datta also integrates customized meditation and EMDR exercises, so you can practice these things on a daily basis and let these negative qualities go.

Psychotherapy, whether it’s psychodynamic or CBT, should be done for at least 6–9 months. If one goes to a psychotherapist just for free visits, it’s not enough. A psychiatrist or psychotherapist is just a person who needs to understand another person (the patient), which takes time. It’s good if the provider can see both the conscious mind and the unconscious mind of the patient sooner rather than later. However, this is not how psychiatrists and therapists are traditionally taught. These providers are taught to listen first and provide interpretations later. An interpretation of what the provider thinks is going on with you from a conscious and unconscious perspective, and it also might include things in your blind spot that you don’t see yourself. Also, Behavior change takes time. Even if a patient was dedicated to changing a certain maladaptive behavior on a daily basis, they would need to be dedicated to it for at least 2 months to see any change. Then the patient would need to be consistent and dedicated to changing that behavior with the provider’s guidance for a few more months. People who quit after three weeks quit before they even started.

DBT is helpful for people who are suffering from some type of personality disorder. The most common personality disorders are borderline and narcissistic. We all have these personality traits; the most important nuance is to what degree of severity and impairment. If it’s impairing one’s ability to have a relationship or put food on the table in terms of a job, then we have something to talk about.

CBT is a goal-oriented psychotherapy. We have to uncover some things in the unconscious mind, such as core beliefs and intermediate beliefs, to see how you’re getting in your own way. Then we take a strategic, practical approach to achieving your goal. CBT is often a combination of psychodynamic psychotherapy, goal-oriented treatment, and life coaching.

When you want to uncover why you’re getting stuck in a certain part of your life, How you might be sabotaging yourself in a certain part of your life and how you could get past this and accomplish a goal that you want.

The rate-limiting factor is always how much the patient is able to implement the feedback given to them. Each session is like a piano lesson; the piano student must practice the piano when they get home, otherwise they won’t get better. A lot of people think psychotherapy doesn’t work because all they do is come to the session. There are intricate ways in which Dr. Datta will help you practice what is discussed in each session.
