What is Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is a specialized type of therapy which can be effective in helping you cope with a wide range of issues. Often referred to as “talk therapy,” psychotherapy is a way to treat people dealing with various mental disorders (depression, anxiety, etc…) and one of the main objectives of this type of therapy is to help you gain a better understanding of the issues that are causing emotional pain, dysfunction and problems in your life. The psychotherapist teaches people different ways to cope and deal with unhealthy attitudes, thoughts and behaviors. This type of treatment can be very effective in helping you reduce and manage your symptoms and help you function better in every aspect of their lives.
Because the relationship you will develop with your therapist is so important to the process, it is essential to find a therapist with whom you feel safe. Effective psychotherapy will allow you to open up and make yourself deeply vulnerable to the therapist. To do this you must feel safe.
A good psychotherapist has the skills to build that sense of trust and help you feel connected to and safe. The process of psychotherapy is more than the psychotherapist giving you advice and simple problem solving and can bring about important and lasting change in your life.
