Psychotherapy, or talk therapy, is a way to help people with a broad variety of mental illnesses and emotional difficulties. Psychotherapy can help eliminate or control troubling symptoms so a person can function better and can increase well-being and healing. Problems helped by psychotherapy include difficulties in coping with daily life; the impact of trauma, medical illness or loss, like the death of a loved one; and specific mental disorders, like depression or anxiety. There are several different types of psychotherapy and some types may work better with certain problems or issues. Psychotherapy may be used in combination with medication or other therapies.
An effective psychotherapy approach that I use is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) - Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based form of talk therapy. CBT works under the premise that by changing destructive forms of thinking and modifying negative behavior patterns you can alter the underlying feelings. It is this change in cognitive, emotional, and behavioral reaction that leads to long-lasting results in a brief amount of time.
