Psychotherapists know how to support people who have been through trauma, who are experiencing anxiety, depression, bereavement, or anything else that has a large impact on their life. 

There are different types of psychotherapy, but it’s not necessary for anyone to understand all the different types. What’s important is that you find a psychotherapist who is a good fit for you. 

The Different Types of Psychotherapy

There are a few different types of psychotherapy. However, some of the better know types are: 

  • Couples therapy – This type of psychotherapy offers couples the chance to explore their relationship and their struggles. They also learn how to resolve conflict and communicate better. 
  • Family therapy – This type of psychotherapy works on the premise that when there’s a problem in the family, it’s the whole family that has the problem. The therapy helps every family member interact with and support each other. I

  • Group therapy – Group therapy works by getting a small group of people together and working through each other’s problems. Conducted in a safe environment, the therapy also looks at past experiences and how people react with each other. 
  • Individual talking therapy – This type of psychotherapy is one-to-one and offers a safe space for an individual to talk about their difficulties. Person-centred or psychoanalysis could be used during the session.

How Psychotherapy Works

Every therapeutic relationship is different, and it is tailored to the individual’s needs. However, there is no single explanation as to how psychotherapy works. 

This type of therapy can help to treat PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder), depression, eating disorders, and OCD (Obsessive compulsive disorder).

Psychotherapists can use different approaches, and they could, therefore, give you different answers as to why this type of therapy works. However, it can help you to find better, potentially less harmful ways to cope, heal from trauma, and gain a better insight into any challenges you face. 

Whether you’re looking for psychotherapy in Barlby or the surrounding areas, there is help available. If you would like to see a psychotherapist, please speak to your doctor. Alternatively, you could search online  for “NHS talking therapies” so you can self-refer.
