Psychotherapy Q & A

What’s psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is a generic term that includes many different types of talk therapy led by a trained therapist. The goal of psychotherapy is to help patients identify and change troubling emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. Psychotherapy may help patients learn to cope with a specific problem — and give them the tools to continue coping in the future. It also may be used for support when a patient is going through a hard time.

Individuals may have private sessions with the therapist or choose group therapy, which includes others in the conversation who experience similar challenges. During either type of therapy, participants talk about past or current problems, experiences, thoughts, feelings, and relationships, while the therapist helps make connections and provide insight. The specific interactions that occur during psychotherapy depend on the type of therapy used.

What are the different types of psychotherapies?

The therapists at RobinsPsych use many types of psychotherapies to treat diverse mental illnesses, behavioral challenges, and emotional trauma. They collaborate with patients to choose the treatment that’s most effective for them. Some of the most common types of psychotherapy include:

  • Interpersonal therapy
  • Group couples’ therapy
  • Psychodynamic therapy
  • Cognitive behavior therapy
  • Dialectical behavior therapy
  • Family therapy

How do you know if you need psychotherapy?

It can be hard to determine whether your feelings and behaviors are an expected part of life or need professional intervention. If you have any questions, confusion, or concern, the therapists at RobinsPsych help you sort it out. In the meantime, ask yourself:

  • Do you feel overwhelmed by problems or stress?
  • Do you feel stuck and unable to get past your current problems?
  • Are you able to engage in life and fulfill your daily activities and responsibilities?
  • Have you missed more time from work or school than usual?
  • Does being with friends and family make you feel exhausted or uncomfortable?
  • Do you spend less time with your children than you used to?
  • Have you noticed changes in your body, such as less energy, or changes in appetite and sleep?
  • Has your mood been low for a few weeks?
  • Do you often worry or think about bad things that have happened or might happen?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, think about your distress level and overall ability to function each day. When thoughts, feelings, or behaviors interfere with your daily life, it’s time to consult RobinsPsych to learn whether you should consider treatment.
