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.
