What is the difference between psycho therapy and counselling?
How do I know if I need psycho therapy or counselling?
Psychotherapy and counseling are both forms of talk therapy, however, psychotherapy tends to be more long-term and focuses on deeper, underlying issues. Counselling, on the other hand, is usually more short-term and targets specific problems.
What happens during a typical therapy session?
During a therapy session, you will speak with a licensed therapist about your concerns, experiences and feelings. They may ask questions to help you explore your thoughts and emotions and provide guidance and support.
How long does psycho therapy take?
The length of psychotherapy varies depending on the individual and the nature of the issues being addressed. Some people may see improvements in a few sessions, while others may require more long-term treatment.
Can therapy be done online?
Yes, many therapists offer online counseling or teletherapy. This can be a convenient and effective option for people who cannot attend in-person sessions.
How do I find a qualified therapist?
You can search for therapists online, ask for recommendations from friends or healthcare providers or contact your insurance provider for a list of in-network providers. It's important to do your research and choose a therapist who is licensed and experienced in treating your specific concerns.
If you are struggling with a specific issue or need short-term support, counselling might be the best fit for you. If you are dealing with long-standing issues or want to explore deeper, underlying concerns, psychotherapy may be more appropriate.
Is therapy confidential?
Yes, therapy is confidential. Your therapist is bound by ethical and legal guidelines to keep your information private, except in cases where there is a risk of harm to yourself or others.
Will I feel better immediately after starting therapy?
It's not uncommon to feel some relief after starting therapy, however, lasting change typically takes time and effort. It's important to be patient and committed to the process.
What types of issues can psycho therapy help with?
Psychotherapy can help with a wide range of issues, including anxiety, depression, relationship problems, trauma, grief and more.
How much does therapy cost?
The cost of therapy varies depending on several factors. These include, your location, the therapist's qualifications and your insurance coverage. Some therapists offer sliding-scale fees based on income and many insurance plans cover some or all of the cost of therapy.
Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT)
CBT focuses on changing negative thought patterns and behaviours that can contribute to mental health issues. It involves identifying and challenging negative thoughts, developing coping strategies and engaging in behavioural experiments to test new ways of thinking and behaving.
Interpersonal therapy focuses on improving interpersonal relationships to alleviate mental health symptoms. It involves identifying and addressing relationship problems and developing communication skills to improve interactions with others.
This type of therapy is based on the idea that unresolved conflicts from childhood can impact current mental health issues. It involves exploring the unconscious mind and addressing past traumas and relationships to gain insight into current problems.
Mindfulness-based therapy incorporates mindfulness practices, such as meditation and breathing exercises to promote awareness of the present moment and reduce stress and anxiety. It involves developing a non-judgmental awareness of thoughts and feelings to increase acceptance and reduce emotional reactivity.
Behavioural therapy focuses on changing behaviours through rewards and consequences. It involves identifying problem behaviours, developing specific goals, and implementing strategies to reinforce positive behaviours and eliminate negative ones.
The foundation of psychodynamic therapy is the premise that inappropriate, repetitive, unconscious (i.e., outside of the person's consciousness), childhood experiences have an impact on behaviour and mental health. Together with the therapist, a person strives to increase self-awareness and transform ingrained behaviours in order to better take control of their lives.
