What does psychotherapy entail?
Updated: Jun 20, 2022
Psychotherapists help people of all ages and backgrounds live happier, healthier, and more productive lives.
How do they do that?
Psychotherapists use scientifically verified approaches (e.g., Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Time-Limited Dynamic Psychotherapy, etc.,) to assist individuals in developing healthier and more productive habits. Psychotherapy can take a variety of forms– individual, couple, family, and groups.
Psychotherapy is a collaborative treatment based on an individual's connection with a therapist. Therapists co-create a safe setting in which you can speak freely with someone who is objective, unbiased, and nonjudgmental. Together, you and your therapist will discover and modify the cognition and behavioral patterns that are preventing you from feeling your best.
By the time you're finished, you'll not only have resolved the issue that brought you in, but you'll also have acquired new abilities that will enable you to deal more effectively with future issues.
