How Psychotherapy Can Help
Psychotherapy is the process where mental health distresses and disorders are assessed, prevented, evaluated, and treated. There are a variety of techniques that can be utilized to deal with the problem(s) that brought you to therapy. These services are generally unlike any services you may receive from a physician in that they require your active participation and cooperation. As with any powerful treatment, there are some risks as well as many benefits with therapy. You should think about both the benefits and risks before making any treatment decisions. For example, in therapy there is a risk that clients will, for a time, have uncomfortable levels of sadness, guilt, anxiety, anger, frustration, loneliness, helplessness, or other negative feelings. While you consider these risks, you should know that the benefits of therapy have been shown in hundreds of well-designed research studies. People who have are depressed may find their mood lifting. Others may no longer feel afraid angry, or anxious. In therapy, people have a chance to talk things out fully and increase their awareness until their feelings are relieved or the problems are solved. Client relationships and coping skills may improve greatly. They may have more satisfaction out of social and family relationships. Their personal goals and values may become clearer. They may grow in many directions, as person, in their close relationships, in their work or schooling, and in the ability to enjoy their lives.
