What is Therapy, also called psychotherapy or counseling?
Therapy also called psychotherapy or counseling, is the process of meeting with a therapist to resolve problematic behaviors, beliefs, feelings, relationship issues, and/or somatic responses (sensations in the body). Therapy is for everyone. Beginning therapy can be a big step toward being the healthiest version of yourself and living the best life possible—no matter what challenges you may be facing. Through therapy, you can gain insights into your stressors, trigger, behaviors and habits, resolve painful feelings, improve your relationships, and more.
The most common reasons someone might look to see a psychotherapist include:
Feeling overwhelmed and in despair for long periods of time.
Emotional problems making living life from day to day a chore and seem impossible.
The behaviors brought about by these emotions harm their relationships, either through withdrawal or violence/aggression.
They have no one else to turn to and an outside source for help is the safest option.
