What is therapy?
Therapy, sometimes called counseling, psychotherapy, or talk-therapy, refers to a variety of treatments that aim to help a person identify and change troubling emotions, thoughts, and behaviors.
What can I expect during a therapy session?
In a comfortable, private setting, an individual and a therapist will explore many different important issues, including (but not limited to):
- Expression of thoughts and emotions
- Behavior patterns
- Problem solving
- Conflict resolution
- Strengths and weaknesses
Individual therapy may be short-term (focusing on immediate issues) or long-term (delving into more complex problems). The number of sessions and the frequency of appointments depends on the individual’s situation and the recommendations of the therapist.
