4 Mins read

Psychotherapy is a technique used to help people suffering from sickness related to mindset, behaviour, emotions etc. There are different types which focus on a person’s mental, behavioural and emotional health. If you are feeling stressed or depressed lately or noticing an emotional imbalance in yourself or anyone around you. You might be thinking to go for a psychotherapy session.  If you plan to go for the therapy session, it’s convenient for you to know a few things about them.

Finding a good therapist

First and foremost thing which holds a lot of importance is to choose the right therapist.  You need to look for someone who you are comfortable with. Find someone with whom you would be able to share your feelings and trust him. 

Next step is to develop a relationship with your therapist, talk to him and make yourself relaxed. Once you are in a good relation with the therapist, it would be easier for you to get on with the further process of therapy. 

Choosing the psychotherapy technique

There are different techniques used to treat people with mental, emotional or behavioural issues. These are common in adults as well as young kids due to the hormonal changes or unhealthy diet. The imbalance or issues can be triggered by certain family issues or other stress and depressions. It can be genetic too. The different types of therapies are used to treat certain conditions. It is different from person to person; some people might need support to manage mental disorders. Some people might need guidance to deal with emotional or behavioural issues.  Here are different types of therapies which your therapist might choose from to help you lead a healthy and properly functional life.

Interpersonal Psychotherapy

This is the type of psychotherapy which deals mainly with the behavioural disorders. The term interpersonal is based on communication. The therapy focuses on helping to improve interpersonal communication with your family, friends and other people around you. It helps build up healthy relationship within community and your social circle. As a result to the therapy sessions, the person starts valuing other people’s point of view and becomes more appreciative.

Cognitive psychotherapy

This type of psychotherapy focuses on the behavioural imbalance of a human being. The amazing thing is it does not include the process to exclude the past which triggered a certain condition. Instead the therapy focuses on the present condition or situation of the person and supports in identifying the current issues. Once the issues are identified, the person is guided by the professional therapist to calm himself down. As the person tries to control his condition, he starts feeling better mentally, emotionally and physically as well.

Humanistic psychotherapy

This form of psychotherapy does not consider the emotional or physical disorders which a person goes through. Instead it focuses on the mental condition of the person who suffers from stress or anxiety.  The therapists along with their client identify the root cause which triggered their mental condition and guide them to follow steps to help cure them. As a result of the therapy, the affected person starts respecting other people’s point of view and becomes considerate. 

Psychodynamics and Psychoanalysis therapy

Psychodynamics therapy involves monitoring a patients’ mental and emotional condition instead of his behaviour. The things or events that triggered a certain condition are observed and analysed first. Once the analysis is done, the therapist and patient work together to make sure the condition is taken care of and the patient is brought towards recovery. 

There are a few more approaches that are used by psychotherapists to treat their patients who suffer from mental, physical or emotional imbalances and disorders. You can learn more about them by clicking here.

The purpose of sharing all the above information is to make sure that when people suffer from a certain condition; they know what is happening to them. They should be able to identify the issue and make sure they go to the right person. In this age of technology everyone is informed of anything but only if they try to. If a person does not identify his / her condition and keeps on ignoring for a while, the condition may get worsened which may lead to complicated issues. The type of condition that might develop by ignoring the initial symptoms can be cureless or it might be really worst.

If you or anyone in your surrounding seems to be suffering from any of the conditions like depression, stress or anxiety, it’s better to talk to them. Ask them about the reason why they are experiencing a certain change of behaviour? Trust me, half of the time the person would talk to you if you are so close and the problem may disappear right where it starts. Even if it does not disappear, it might stop there and the person can be cured with a professional help. Be cautious of yourself and your surroundings. A person who suffers from anxiety or depression can be harmful for himself or the people around them so its’ better to make sure they are never alone and guide them to indulge into things which would help them stay busy. They might plan going on a vacation alone for an adventure or with family to spend some quality time. Spending more time with friends or loved ones might help reduce anxiety and stress. 

The professional help that you need can be found through recommendations from your peers or family members. Then you can setup an appointment and visit the professional. You can also setup the appointment online just to have a general introduction in the start and then you can continue with the therapy sessions while visiting the professional place.  Whatever you decide to do, make sure to never ignore such conditions and seek professional help as soon as possible. If these conditions are not taken care of in time, they might lead to severe sickness which might be harmful. Be Cautious and stay safe.
