Results and Success through Mental Reframing - Diana Simu

Cognitive behavioural therapy - Diana Simu

Case study: personal transformation through cognitive-behavioural approach

In the field of therapy and personal development, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) has proven very effective. The following case study illustrates the journey of my client, Ana, in her pursuit of self-awareness and personal growth through mental realignment.

Ana, a 35-year-old woman, sought therapy for anxiety and low self-esteem. She worked in a competitive corporate environment and often felt overwhelmed by responsibilities and performance pressure. Her personal relationships also suffered from her insecurity and lack of self-confidence.

First phase: recognising thinking patterns

She decided to enter into a long-term therapeutic process. The first phase of therapy involved identifying Ana's limiting thoughts and beliefs. She had long believed that she was not good enough and that her failures were evidence of personal incompetence. Through guided discussions and introspection techniques, Ana began to recognise her thinking patterns.

Second phase: Identifying irrational thoughts

Cognitive behavioural therapy - mental realignment - recognising irrational thoughtsIn the second phase, we worked together to challenge and reframe these thoughts. Ana learned to identify irrational thoughts and replace them with more balanced and realistic perspectives. For example, instead of thinking: 'I'll never succeed', she began to adopt the attitude: 'I embrace challenges with openness and learn from them.'

Third phase: Experimenting with new behaviour

In the third phase, Ana was encouraged to take calculated risks and experiment with new behaviours in social and professional settings. This included participating in work meetings, expressing her personal opinions and participating in group activities.

Her results finally came out!

cognitive behavioural therapy - steps to resultsAfter six months of therapy, Ana showed significant improvement. Her anxiety decreased and her self-esteem increased. She started taking on more responsibilities at work and built healthier relationships with colleagues and friends, learning to respect her own boundaries and impose them in a healthy way in her interactions with others.


Ana's case demonstrates the effectiveness of cognitive behavioural therapy in treating anxiety and improving self-esteem. This approach, aimed at identifying, challenging and changing negative thoughts and behaviours, can lead to significant transformations in the lives of those involved in this therapeutic process.

Like any other skill, mental reframing can be developed with practice and patience.
