What is Psychotherapy?
Different types of psychotherapy
With different treatments better for treating certain issues than others, here are some of the most common and effective techniques used:
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)
- Neuro-Linguistic Therapy (NLP)
- Gestalt Therapy
- Transactional Analysis Therapy
Each form of therapy has its own approach. Which one is right for you depends on your circumstances and issues, but it’s common to draw in techniques from other therapies.
How can psychotherapy help you?
- Anxiety and stress
Psychotherapy usually involves a long-term commitment for those with deeper-seated problems. Your therapist will form a relationship with you that feels safe and secure, in a non-judgmental environment, to help you cope with or manage more complex issues, including:
- Conflict resolution
- Major life changes
- Unhealthy reactions (anger issues or behavioural problems)
- Abuse (physical, sexual, or mental)
- Sexual or relationship issues
