Types of Therapy

The following is a list of specific psychotherapy approaches and therapy types. Some of the therapy types listed have been around for many years, others are relatively new. Some have been grounded in research, others in theory, and some rely on anecdotal evidence. Some are popularly accepted, others are cutting edge, and some controversial. GoodTherapy.org is not in a position to endorse or disapprove of any therapy types. Our intention is to promote the use and awareness of the universal elements of good therapy which can be found across therapy types. However, GoodTherapy.org does reserve the right to exclude models which clearly conflict with what we believe to be healthy psychotherapy. We encourage you to explore, research, and discover for yourself which kind of therapy may be a fit for you. On each therapy page we've included a basic overview and links to other sites with information on these therapy types so you can have an easy starting point. We wish you the best on your journey :)

 

For those searching for help, please know that even a healthy model of therapy can be used in an unhealthy way. The therapist you choose is a very important factor in whether a therapy intended to work collaboratively and to empower actually does so. Also, the following list is a work in progress; there are therapy types not yet listed. As we become familiar with other therapy types we will add them to this list. Please feel welcome to suggest a type of therapy not already on our list (We receive many requests to add approaches which are already included. Please confirm that the type of therapy you'd like to suggest is not already included). Thanks :)
