common questions

Therapy is a collaborative process between a client and a therapist aimed at improving the client’s mental health and well-being. The specific approach and techniques used in therapy may vary depending on the client’s needs, the therapist’s training and experience, and the goals of therapy.

In therapy, the therapist provides a safe and non-judgmental environment for the client to explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Through a combination of active listening, empathic understanding, and evidence-based interventions, the therapist helps the client gain insight into their issues, develop coping skills, and make positive changes in their life.

Therapy can be short-term or long-term, depending on the client’s needs and goals. Some types of therapy, like cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), are structured and goal-oriented, focusing on specific problems and providing practical strategies for addressing them. Other types of therapy, like psychodynamic therapy, are more exploratory and focused on uncovering and resolving underlying emotional issues.

Regardless of the type of therapy, the therapeutic relationship between the client and therapist is key to the success of the process. The therapist provides a safe and supportive space for the client to share their thoughts and feelings, while also challenging them to grow and make positive changes. The client is an active participant in the therapy process, working collaboratively with the therapist to set goals and make progress.

Overall, therapy can be a powerful tool for improving mental health and well-being, helping individuals develop greater self-awareness, build resilience, and find new ways to cope with life’s challenges.
