Woman in Therapy


Psychotherapy is an approach for treating mental health disorders by talking to a psychologist, psychiatrist, social worker, or mental health provider. It is also known as talk therapy, counselling, or simply, therapy. 


During sessions, your therapist encourages you to talk about your thoughts, feelings, and experiences, and you learn how your thoughts, emotions, and habits affect your behaviour and decision making. Therapy helps you recognize how to take control of your life and respond to challenging situations with healthy coping skills. Your therapist may ask you to practice certain techniques and do specific activities to apply what you have learned.

Therapy can take different formats, and the techniques used may vary depending on the style of the therapist and the needs of the patient(s).
