Psychotherapy can help with understanding yourself and others. Behavior is a form of communication. Your own behavior and the behaviors of others are constantly interacting to communicate to one another our needs, wants, challenges, etc. Psychotherapy can help with understanding what those needs, wants, challenges, etc. are and exploring effective ways to communicate and meet needs and desires, cope with challenges, and essentially develop healthy relationships.
People go to therapy for many different reasons. Some reasons may be preventative such as premarital counseling or family reunification therapy. Some reasons may be for enduring challenges such as facing a new job, a new school, or relational challenges. Some reasons may even be for recovery such as healing after a trauma or experiencing death or divorce.
You can benefit from support through life's transitions no matter how severe or simple your concerns may be.
The length and frequency of treatment is dependent upon the individuals needs and goals. When a client is actively participating the treatment goals can normally be met more quickly.
In psychotherapy, symptoms are described as behaviors, thoughts, or feelings. All of us experience at one time or another inappropriate behaviors, negative thoughts, or painful feelings. This experience is different for everyone and everyone's symptoms are manifested in different ways. The individual has strengths and weaknesses that contribute to how these symptoms are manifested in the home or community and the amount of distress they cause. This information has been categorized to provide a platform for the symptoms and distress to be scientifically explained and treated. These categories are called diagnosis.
Some symptoms of diagnosis can be treated with medication. The attachment and behavior patterns that cause the symptoms are treated in psychotherapy. Research has shown that medication has the best results when paired with psychotherapy.
