A brief explanation of what Psychotherapy is, and what it’s used for, with thanks to my colleagues at Medical News Today…
Psychotherapy consists of a series of techniques for treating mental health, emotional and some psychiatric disorders.
Psychotherapy helps the patient understand what helps them feel positive or anxious, as well as accepting their strong and weak points. If people can identify their feelings and ways of thinking they become better at coping with difficult situations.
Talking versus drugs
Psychologists generally view individual distress as the result of human relationship problems, rather than as the result of a personal disorder.
A psychologist who specialises in psychotherapy will generally consider the wider context of relations within a family or at work. Psychiatrists and medical doctors tend to take a more medical approach to mental health and are more inclined to prescribe drugs to alleviate stress.
This is a general difference between a psychologist’s approach and a psychiatrist’s – however, there are many psychiatrists who also use psychotherapy.
While Psychotherapy is considered by many to be a “mainstream” approach, others consider alternate methods like Reiki, and other “energy-based” therapies. For this reason, as Reiki Master and a supporter of positive-energy methodologies, I’ve also included Reiki Attunements and Energy Psychotherapy to my portfolio of services, and my clientele enjoy notable success in finding their solutions with these therapies, either as alternate or additional approaches.
