Psychotherapy, also known as talk therapy, is an effective way to address a wide range of mental health issues and emotional challenges. Psychotherapy can help get rid of or control symptoms so a person can function better and can increase well-being and healing.
Psychotherapy can be very helpful in addressing issues related to the daily stresses of life, trauma from medical traumas or losses like bereavement, and mental health disorders such as depression or anxiety.
With multiple psychotherapeutic approaches, it can be difficult to determine which type would best address your specific issues. That’s why combining psychotherapy with medications or other treatments may create the most successful outcome for you.
“From start to finish, it taught me so much about myself.”
“Thank you for challenging me when I needed it.”
“I can’t believe how much progress I’ve made in a short time.”
“After many years of therapy, you are the first person who gets me.”
Extensive research has revealed that psychotherapy is remarkably successful, with 75% of participants showing big improvement. Those who receive psychotherapy typically experience symptom relief and improved functioning in their lives overall.
Studies have shown that psychotherapy can help to quickly elevate moods, modify behaviours, and even physically transform the brain. Apart from this, it also offers enhanced productivity, fewer absences due to sickness or disability issues as well as increased contentment at work!
Through the use of brain imaging techniques, scientists have discovered striking transformations in the brains of individuals who receive psychotherapy. Recent studies have unveiled that psychotherapy can actually alter the brain composition of those living with mental health issues, such as depression, panic attacks and PTSD.
In many circumstances, the neurological effects produced by psychotherapy resembled those generated by medication.
Unlock the full potential of psychotherapy by seeing it as a team effort, speaking openly and honestly, and staying committed to your course of treatment. Make sure you complete all tasks in between sessions, like journaling or practising the things we discussed. Doing so will help further your progress and growth.
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) – This allows individuals to recognize and alter their beliefs and routines that are harmful or unhelpful, replacing them with more accurate thoughts and productive behaviours. It can help a person focus on current issues and how to resolve them. It often involves practising new skills in the real world. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been proven to be an efficient and effective treatment for a variety of mental disorders, such as depression, anxiety and trauma-related problems
Interpersonal therapy (IPT) – This is a short-term form of treatment. With the aid of this treatment, patients acquire insight into complicated personal problems. These include unprocessed grief, revision of social and work roles, conflicts with intimate companions and difficulty connecting to others. It aids people to learn healthy ways to express their emotions and how it relates to interpersonal connections. Most commonly, it is utilised to battle depression.
Dialectical behaviour therapy -A specialised form of CBT is used to help individuals gain control over their emotions. This strategy has been successful in treating those with chronic suicidal thoughts, borderline personality disorder, eating disorders and PTSD. This program offers invaluable skills to help people take ownership of changing their ineffective or harmful behaviour. Both individual and group therapy are available through this method of treatment.
Psychodynamic therapy – The basic idea is that prior events, in conjunction with emotions and thoughts a person has no control over, can shape their behaviour and well-being. Through therapy, an individual can gain greater clarity and break out of unhealthy patterns in order to take control of their life.
Psychoanalysis – An intense psychodynamic therapy, conducted three or more times a week for maximum effectiveness.
Supportive therapy – Through instruction and support, patients can discover their inner strength while increasing esteem. Thus reducing stress levels, enhancing resilience skills, and promoting better social/community interactions. Through supportive psychotherapy, individuals can gain the tools to manage their mental health challenges and in doing so, improve all areas of life.
