Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy, i.e popularly called REBT (RE&CBT), as propounded by Dr Albert Ellis, is one of the most widely practised therapies all over the globe today. Its success lies in the fact that clients get better, faster, requiring fewer sessions than other therapies. REBT (RE&CBT) can be applied for most mental health issues and disorders.
Incidentally REBT is now called RE&CBT, i.e Rational Emotive and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy by the Albert Ellis Institute but it remains the same therapy.
It is an evidence based, solution focused psychotherapy, which looks at altering Unhealthy Negative Emotions, through disputation of Irrational Beliefs. Thereby providing a Rational Belief system to change not just negative emotions but also one's unhealthy perspective on life. REBT (RE&CBT) comes under the umbrella of Cognitive Therapies and has been found to be extremely effective as compared to other psychotherapies, as it focuses on changing core beliefs, the root of most problems. REBT (RE&CBT) is today the first line of treatment for various mental disorders, like depression and anxiety.
