An insight into Psychotherapy and what it can offer you, including a list of some providers we recommend.
Information about Psychotherapy and recommended providers who can help you.
Psychotherapy is an approach for treating mental health concerns by talking with a psychologist, psychiatrist or other mental health provider. It also is known as talking therapy, counselling, psychosocial therapy or, simply, therapy.
During psychotherapy, you discuss and learn about your specific issues and how your thoughts, emotions and behaviours affect your moods. It helps you learn how to take control of your life and respond to challenging situations with healthy coping skills.
You might want to seek out psychotherapy for many reasons, including the following:
- Dealing with severe or long-term stress from a job or family situation, the loss of a loved one, gender-related dysphoria, or relationship problems
- Having symptoms with no physical explanation, such as changes in sleep or appetite, low energy level, lack of interest or pleasure in activities you once enjoyed, persistent irritability, excessive worry, or a sense of discouragement or hopelessness that won’t go away
- A health care provider suspecting you have or diagnosing you with a mental disorder that is interfering with your life
- Supporting a family member or child who has been diagnosed with a condition or experiencing things that are affecting their mental health
Not everyone who benefits from psychotherapy is diagnosed with a mental illness. Psychotherapy can help with the stresses and conflicts of life that can affect anyone.
