Using personal interactions, therapists can help a person overcome problems and change behaviors. The goal is to improve a person’s mental wellbeing by resolving patterns in behavior, finding patterns in thoughts, understanding the root of emotions, examining and exploring relationships, teaching social skills, and more. There are many types of psychotherapy, all variants in the techniques and methodologies used depending on the therapist, schooling, and application of the psychotherapy.
During psychotherapy sessions, you learn about your feelings, thoughts, moods, and desires through conversation and exploration. Depending on what you would like to work on, a therapist will select an approach that is most appropriate for you to work with them on resolving what you’d like to improve on.
Psychotherapy is also known as talk therapy, counseling, psychosocial therapy, or just “therapy”. Therapy is right for the person that feels that they are a bit overwhelmed and would like assistance working through issues, or someone who is quite sure something feels wrong, but isn’t sure what that is. In either case, it’s a good idea to start consulting with a professional trained in psychotherapy to start getting in tune with what’s bothering you, and start working on how to resolve it to increase your quality of life.
