What is Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is a type of talk therapy. You may have seen a simplified session on TV, where a person rests on a couch while talking to a therapist. Psychotherapy may seem simple in practice, but many people discover new perspectives and thought patterns that help them do better in life. Years of case studies and research are a testament to psychotherapy's effectiveness.

Also, unlike your friends and family, a psychotherapist is meant to serve as a neutral and non-judgmental party.

What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

You may have heard of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) when researching psychotherapy. A psychotherapist can use several approaches meant to help someone improve their well-being. CBT is one approach. During this type of therapy, a person may discover new ways of thinking that help with future behaviors.

Should I Get a Psychotherapist?

The American Psychological Association (APA) is an advocate of psychotherapy. Research shows psychotherapy can be effective for mild to moderate depression and sleep disorders, as well as other mental health and behavioral conditions. If you've tried other types of therapy or treatment methods in the past and aren't happy with the results, a psychotherapist may be able to help.
