Psychotherapy, or "talk therapy", is a process to help individuals manage mental health disorders, emotional challenges, and life stressors. Through discussions with a mental health professional, individuals gain understanding about their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Different types of psychotherapy, including cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, humanistic and integrated therapy, are used based on the individuals' needs.
In cognitive-behavioral therapy, individuals learn to change harmful thought and behavior patterns. Psychodynamic therapy emphasizes the influence of unconscious mind and past experiences. Humanistic therapies focus on self-development and growth. Integrative therapy combines various therapeutic techniques.
Psychotherapy can be done individually or in groups, and it's adaptable to all ages and diverse issues. It’s a participatory process, often coupled with discomfort due to the exploration of upsetting subjects or emotions. Nevertheless, it's an effective method to make healthier decisions and improve life quality.
