Psychotherapy, also known as talk therapy, is a type of emotional and mental health treatment that utilizes a client and therapist working together to identify and alter the client's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. This form of treatment encourages self-reflection and the exploration of healthy ways to manage emotional or identity issues. Psychotherapy can help a person learn effective communication skills, manage difficult relationships, get a better handle on their emotions, set realistic goals, and alter unhealthy thoughts. Psychotherapy seeks to create lasting changes in the mindset that leads to improved mental well-being overall.

It is important to recognize when it may be beneficial to see a psychotherapist. If you are feeling overwhelmed or stressed, it is enough of a reason to book an appointment. It can be beneficial to learn about positive cognitive and behavioral strategies to care for your mental health.

When looking for a psychotherapist, there are some crucial things you should look for, including:

Make sure the therapist is qualified and certified.

  • Make sure the therapist’s style and approach are compatible with your personality and needs.

  • Make sure the therapist is someone you can trust and rely on.

  • Make sure their office hours align with your schedule

  • Consider the environment or format your meetings will be taking place. It is important to feel safe and comfortable during your sessions, so virtual therapy may be a good fit.

Do not be afraid to “shop around” until you find a good fit. You must have confidence in your therapist to help you and your mental health.
