Psychotherapy, or talk therapy, is a way to help people with a broad variety of mental illnesses and emotional difficulties. Psychotherapy can help eliminate or control troubling symptoms so a person can function better and can increase well-being and healing.

The main treatments for people with PTSD are specific short-term psychotherapies. These treatments are described below. Everyone is different, so a treatment that works for one person may not work for another. Some people may need to try different treatments to find what works best for their symptoms.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a common type of talk therapy (psychotherapy). You work with a mental health counselor (psychotherapist or therapist) in a structured way. CBT helps you become aware of inaccurate or negative thinking so you can view challenging situations more clearly and respond to them in a more effective way.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy (Shapiro, 2001) was initially developed in 1987 for the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and is guided by the Adaptive Information Processing model (Shapiro 2007). EMDR is an individual therapy typically delivered one to two times per week for a total of 6-12 sessions

Couples therapy is a type of psychotherapy in which a licensed therapist helps people involved in a romantic relationship. Therapist will understand their relationship, resolve conflict, and improve their relationship using a variety of therapeutic processes. Research conducted by the American Association of Marriage and Family concluded that over 97% of surveyed couples got the help they needed from couples therapy.

“Dialectical” means combining opposite ideas. DBT focuses on helping people accept the reality of their lives and their behaviors, as well as helping them learn to change their lives, including their unhelpful behaviors. Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is especially effective for people who have difficulty managing and regulating their emotions

Borderline personality disorder is a mental illness that severely impacts a person’s ability to regulate their emotions. This loss of emotional control can increase impulsivity, affect how a person feels about themselves, and negatively impact their relationships with others. Effective treatments are available to manage the symptoms of borderline personality disorder. Borderline personality disorder is mainly treated using psychotherapy

Trauma Therapy is a specific approach to therapy that recognizes and emphasizes understanding how the traumatic experience impacts a child’s mental, behavioral, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. This type of therapy is rooted in understanding the connection between the trauma experience and the child’s emotional and behavioral responses.

Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy that involves one or more therapists working with several people at the same time. Group therapy is sometimes used alone, but it is also commonly integrated into a comprehensive treatment plan that also includes individual therapy.

Anger management refers to a process. It can help people identify stressors. People learn steps to help them stay calm in anger management. They may then handle tense situations in a constructive, positive way. The purpose of anger management is to help a person decrease anger. It reduces the emotional and physical arousal that anger can cause

Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT therapy) is a type of mindful psychotherapy that helps you stay focused on the present moment and accept thoughts and feelings without judgment. ACT therapy works by focusing on accepting life experiences as they come, without evaluating or trying to change them.

Social media platforms, such as Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram, have become a staple of the modern world. While they can be a pleasurable way to keep up with friends and family. They are also highly addictive. If your relationship with social media has negatively impacted other areas of your life, it may be time to re-evaluate your behaviors.

Exposure therapy is a psychological treatment that was developed to help people confront their fears. When people are fearful of something, they tend to avoid the feared objects, activities or situations. The exposure to the feared objects, activities or situations in a safe environment helps reduce fear and decrease avoidance.

Retail therapy is a popular term for shopping to soothe or lift your mood. During retail therapy, you are in control of your spending and feel satisfied with your decision to buy or not to buy. Shopping addiction makes you want to keep buying things, even if you know you shouldn’t.

Shopping addiction can be treated with behavioral therapy and individual counseling. The person with a shopping addiction must develop impulse control and also learn to identify triggers. Shopping addiction can be difficult to manage, as making purchases is a normal part of everyday life.

Gestalt therapy is a humanistic and person-centered form of psychotherapy which is focused on a person’s present life and current challenges, rather than focusing on past experiences that a lot of other therapies delve into. There is an emphasis on perception in this therapy, specifically aiming to increase a person’s awareness of themselves at the moment, and through this awareness, personal growth becomes possible

Social anxiety disorder is a common type of anxiety disorder. A person with social anxiety disorder feels symptoms of anxiety or fear in situations where they may be scrutinized, evaluated, or judged by others, such as speaking in public, meeting new people, dating, being on a job interview, answering a question in class, or having to talk to a cashier in a store.

Porn addiction is challenging to treat because of what researchers call the “triple-A” impact. Porn’s accessibility, affordability, and privacy make it easy for users to consume its content compulsively. As time spent and frequency slowly increase, it may be years until a loved one or the individual realizes there is a problem. Still, there are several ways of treating the behavioral disorder.

Talk therapy, which is also known as psychotherapy, is what mental health professionals use to communicate with their patients. The purpose of talk therapy is to help people identify issues that cause emotional distress. For some people, these issues are complex and may result in a diagnosis of a mental health condition, such as depression or anxiety.

Teletherapy, also commonly known as telepsychiatry, applies telemedicine to the field of mental health therapy and counseling. Generally, teletherapy refers to psychiatric treatment delivered through technology like video conferencing.

Phone Therapy is refer to psychiatric treatment delivered through phone call. Telephone counseling can help you with all the same issues and concerns that you would address with a licensed therapist in traditional therapy. For example, telephone counseling can help with events at work, issues with your family, medication management, relationship issues, or even just purely random occurrences that can leave you feeling anxious or depressed.

Somatic therapy is a form of body-centered therapy that looks at the connection of mind and body and uses both psychotherapy and physical therapies for complete healing. In addition to talk therapy, somatic therapy practitioners use mind-body exercises and other physical techniques to help release the pent-up tension that negatively affects a patient’s physical and emotional wellbeing.

Coming to terms with feelings of loss and making sense of it can be a painful process. Grief is a common emotional and sometimes physical response that you feel when you experience loss after a disaster or a traumatic event. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for grief works by helping you become aware of your negative thought patterns. These patterns can lead to behaviors that make it difficult to process grief.

Humanistic therapy is a mental health approach that emphasizes the importance of being your true self in order to lead the most fulfilling life. It’s based on the principle that everyone has their own unique way of looking at the world. This view can impact your choices and actions
