The science behind it all
This process of Evaluating your Thoughts comes from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
CBT is considered the gold standard of psychotherapy. It involves correcting present behaviors and thought patterns, rather than focusing on what has led up to your difficulties.
The aim of applying CBT is to bring awareness to your thoughts and chart a path to change those unhelpful thinking patterns.
1. How does this help?
This chat follows the principle of the Evaluating Unhelpful Thoughts exercise of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is considered the gold standard of psychotherapy and places an emphasis on teaching individuals to help themselves.
Evaluating your thoughts helps people reduce their stress by cultivating more positive and functional thought habits. It is not a guaranteed cure for your anxiety but a skill worth practicing – it is hard when you first begin, but with time you will find it easier and easier to challenge your own negative thoughts and beliefs.
2. How long does this chat last?
Each chat takes 20-30 minutes. You may schedule a chat anytime you want a listening ear.
3. How does it work?
We conduct our chats using the chat function in Zoom, but our videos and audios stay disabled throughout to ensure anonymity.

In 2019, Buddio founder Abid Masood found himself helping a family member through a tough time. He was shocked at how hard it was to find resources on the road to wellness.
As someone who has also been dealing with mental health challenges himself, he wanted to create a platform that would give people more insight into their mental wellbeing, and encourage evidence-based steps towards healing.
Thus, Buddio was born. Abid hopes that it’ll be a helpful tool for others during difficult times.
