What Is Psychotherapy And How It Works?

What Is Psychotherapy?

The Psychotherapy is also known as talk therapy. This form of therapy involves spending time with the therapist, in order to trace and treat mental, emotional, or personality issues.
As its fundamental foundation is dialogue, it provides a supportive environment that allows you to speak openly with someone who is objective, neutral, and impartial. You and the psychologist will work together to identify and change the patterns of thought and behavior that keep you from feeling good.
The skilled team at IPRC offers cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Psychodynamic psychotherapy, Schema Focused Therapy, Counselling and other therapies.

Psychotherapy Process

In most types of psychotherapy, the therapist encourages you to talk about your thoughts and feelings, and what worries you. Don’t worry if you find it difficult to talk about your feelings. The therapist can help you feel more secure and comfortable as time goes on.

Since psychotherapy often has intense emotional conversations, you may find yourself crying, distraught, or even having a fit of rage in the middle of a session. Some people feel physically exhausted after a session. The therapist is always available to help you deal with those feelings and emotions.

You would typically be required to meet with your therapist once a week. The course of treatment prescribed to you will depend on a number of different factors. Such as the nature, severity, and duration of the problem. Your support network. And a plethora of other factors we will be taking into account once you begin your journey to a healthier, stress-free life with us.
