Psychotherapy Q & A

What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy, also known as talk therapy, is a method of helping you deal with a wide range of mental health issues and challenges that you face in life. Psychotherapy can help you resolve negative thoughts and feelings to increase your overall well-being. 

There are several types of psychotherapy. In addition to individual, couples, and group therapy settings, your therapist may specialize in a specific therapeutic approach, such as:

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy
  • Interpersonal therapy
  • Dialectical behavior therapy
  • Psychodynamic therapy
  • Supportive therapy

Your therapist may recommend a particular type of psychotherapy based on your condition and needs. They may also combine elements from different therapeutic approaches to create a customized treatment plan for you.

Why would I need psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy helps resolve a wide range of mental health conditions. You may also benefit from psychotherapy if you’re going through a difficult period in your life, such as grieving the loss of a loved one, divorce, or a medical illness.

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Eating disorders
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Substance abuse

What happens during a psychotherapy session?

Contrary to the way therapy is portrayed in movies and on television, you don’t lie on a couch with your therapist just out of view, answering questions about your relationship with your mother. Of course, depending on the way your therapist’s office is set up, you can lie down if you’re more comfortable that way. But most of the time, you and your therapist sit in chairs and talk. 

What you talk about depends on your needs. For example, you may talk about what’s going on in your life right now and your related thoughts and emotions. You may talk about the things that trigger negative thoughts, feelings, or behaviors. 

Your therapist may ask questions to encourage you to consider your thoughts, feelings, and experiences differently. They may offer suggestions on alternative ways to respond to negative thoughts or give you “homework” to practice between sessions.
