Cognitive   therapy   is   a   form   of   therapy   based   on   the   model   of   emotional   response   .This   is   to   say   that   our   thoughts   are   directly   connected   to   how   we   feel     and   is   therefore,   founded   on   the   assumption   that   our   thoughts   and   feelings   are   available   to   introspection.   Because   the   focus   of   psychological   problems   and   remedies   are   on   the   client’s   cognitions,   this   type   of   therapy   is   called   cognitive   therapy   (Beck,   A. 1976).   As   a   form   of   therapy,   cognitive   therapy   is   brief   and   directional,   focusing on   the   clients   thought   processes   above   and   below   the   level   of   awareness.       Due   to   the   limitation   of   the   scope   of   this   essay,   I   will   give   a   brief   overview   on   the   history   of   Cognitive   therapy,   its   goals   and   key   concepts,   the   process   and   the   therapeutic   relationship.     During   this   overview,   I   will   mention   some limitations of the therapy   around   the   role   of   the   therapeutic   relationship   in   the   process,   and   the   loss   of   experiential   learning   that   occurs   with   the   directional   aspect   of   the   therapy   and   the   education of   the   client   about   the   process   itself.
