If you suffer from a condition that can be treated with CBT, you might be able to help yourself in some ways. Helping yourself is appropriate in various circumstances—for example:
- When you are waiting for your CBT treatment to start
- When you do not have access to any CBT therapist who can treat you
- When you are not sure whether your condition requires CBT
In general, you can help yourself by using books and other study materials, by joining self-help groups, or by using self-help web sites on the Internet. You can also use a combination of these things.
