Psychotherapy is a mode of mental health treatment that involves talking through your concerns and life’s hurdles with a psychologist, like a therapist, or another licensed mental health professional. You can benefit from psychotherapy sessions with or without a mental health disorder, getting to know more about your thoughts, feelings, and overall personality.
The main goal of psychotherapy is to help you cope with life’s challenges. It’s an opportunity to heal from trauma, refine your communication skills, and more. The therapists works with you to select the right type of psychotherapy for your situation.
While there was once a stigma attached to seeking psychotherapy, the reality is that it helps people of all ages, genders, and cultural backgrounds navigate life. You may seek psychotherapy for any reason, but a few of the most common are:
Your psychotherapy might take place with just you and the therapists, or you can involve your partner with couples counseling. In any case, the therapists provide a nonjudgemental, safe place for you to speak your mind and be open.
Psychotherapy is highly individualized to cater to your specific needs and reasons for seeking therapy. You may need just a few sessions to work through some short-term stress, or long-term, repeated appointments to manage a condition.
The therapists specializes in these and other types of psychotherapy:
During CBT, the therapist helps you learn to identify your thoughts and mood changes as they occur and helps you change your thinking patterns and perspective. CBT notably helps in the treatment of depression, anxiety, PTSD, and other mental health conditions.
ACT focuses on making you more aware of your thoughts and emotions, accepting them, and committing to a change for the better. The goal is to help you better cope with daily challenges and adjust to new settings.
Couples counseling is a specialized form of psychotherapy that aims to improve your romantic relationship. You and your partner come to therapy together to learn communication skills and how to handle disagreements productively.
