    If CBT doesn't work for you... then what?

    I felt I needed to ask this because I seem to do rather badly with CBT, which seems to be painted as a universal panacea. It's not long before old habits resurface despite best efforts.

    So if it doesn't work for an individual, what comes next - if anything?

    There are other types of therapy, besides CBT. TAlk, EMDR, exposure, grief, group, etc. some work better for some diagnoses than others.

    Often, I’ve found, that it takes a combination of things to work for me. I often need the trifecta of therapy, meds and lifestyle changes. Other coping mechanisms include exercise, yoga, meditation, mindfulness, journaling, pet/animal help, etc. There is no one size fits all solution.
