What Is Psychotherapy?
Therapy, psychotherapy, talk therapy…whatever you want to call it, therapy is a common treatment option for those living with mental health problems. Sometimes therapy can be used alone or in conjunction with medications to help patients better manage symptoms and behaviors of mental disorders, including,
- Bipolar disorder
- Eating disorders
- Substance abuse and addictions
- Personality disorder
- Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Some studies have shown that around 60-65 percent of people experience significant relief from their symptoms in just one to seven individual psychotherapy sessions.
What Are the Benefits of Psychotherapy?
During individual psychotherapy, our Rego Park, NY, therapists will identify your concerns and problems and provide insight and strategies to improve your outlook, behaviors, coping mechanisms and habits.
Even if you aren’t dealing with a mental disorder, therapy can be a great way to understand your emotions and behaviors better and to find a therapeutic and supportive outlet to express your feelings, particularly in light of significant life events, whether the loss of a job, divorce or bullying. Other benefits include,
- A possible reduction in blood pressure (based on scientific studies)
- Improved well-being in those with advanced or terminal cancer
- May reduce the need for psychiatric hospitalization or certain medical services, which reduces medical costs
- Along with medication, psychotherapy has shown to provide more long-term results than medication alone
- Set and reach goals
- Improve self-awareness, resilience and build confidence
- Heal impaired or damaged relationships
- Stop harmful behaviors
- Identify your triggers
