What is Psychotherapy?
A concise way to describe individual psychotherapy is in terms of a relationship between one person and a licensed therapist with the shared goal of provoking change and improving the that person’s quality of life. The focus of therapy includes but is not limited to self-esteem, anxiety, body image, codependency, depression, traumatic experiences, and stress management. You may not be able to identify exactly what yours suffering with but know that you are suffering. If so, therapy is a powerful tool in helping you identify and then treatment the source of your pain.
How does Psychotherapy Work?
Therapy involves many techniques and provides clients with the tools to self-manage throughout the therapeutic relationship and maintain after the relationship is terminated. Clients develop insight about their behaviors, thought processes, and coping mechanisms as well as problem-solving skills and alternatives to dysfunctional behaviors and thoughts. The role of the licensed therapist is to assist the client in making changes to the way the cope with their everyday lives with the goal of lessening the intensity, frequency, and duration of symptoms and related problems.
Some types of individual psychotherapy include:
- Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
- Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)
- Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT)
