What is Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is also called talk therapy or counselling due to its purpose of talking to people with various mental health challenges and emotional hardships. It is also for people who have specific goals they want to achieve and want to explore the barriers that may be holding them back.

Psychotherapy can help to reduce or eliminate troubling symptoms to enable an improved sense of wellbeing and better navigate the day-to-day tasks of everyday life.

No matter who we are, we face challenges in life that can throw us off course. When you experience changes and difficult life experiences, you are not alone. Millions of people around the world are facing issues such as stress, anxiety, and depression.

By working with our psychotherapists in Kitchener Waterloo, you can mitigate the effects of these conditions. Imagine starting each day with a clear sense of purpose. Imagine responding with conviction when faced with difficult situations. People use psychotherapy to help them be better.

What are Types of Psychotherapy?

Just like human issues are diverse, psychotherapy has many facets. Psychotherapists may combine several approaches depending on a person’s circumstances and preferences. Below are the main approaches to psychotherapy today. The five main approaches to psychotherapy today are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Interpersonal Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy and Couples & Family Therapy.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an approach that helps a person link their thought patterns to how they feel and act. The CBT approach assists people who face issues such as depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an effective evidence-based cognitive therapy in which the therapist and client work with acceptance and change-oriented strategies. DBT can be useful in treating mood disorders, suicidal ideation, and for change in behavioral patterns such as self-harm and substance use.

Interpersonal Therapy is an approach that helps people to learn new methods of expressing their feelings. Interpersonal therapy helps people maintain healthy relationships in their lives.

Psychodynamic Therapy enables people to deal with past experiences that are influencing their thought and behavioral patterns. Identifying and dealing with these experiences may help a person address them and take better control of their lives.

Couples & Family Therapy helps couples or family members explore their feelings, understand one another, and build stronger relationships. Couples and family therapy helps families find a solution to their problems and break down communication barriers.

Get The Most Out Of Your Therapy

You will be happier with your results and get the most out of your therapy when you show up ready to work on you. Showing up with an idea of what you would like to overcome in your life or simply improve on will help your therapist better support you. While trust takes time to build, the more open and honest you can be with your therapist the better they will be able to help you.

I originally came across CARESPACE when I was searching for a psychotherapist via Google, and along came the suggestion.

I have been seeing multiple providers through the facility now including Emily (psychotherapy), Christina (dietician), and Sarah (personal trainer/kinesiologist).

It is wonderful how interconnected the services are. It is convenient to be able to see all of these providers through one location, and also have them communicate behind the scenes to make sure you have access to the right support. They were not pushy about seeing the other service providers through the clinic, they were true suggestions based on needs. CARESPACE has been most beneficial to both my mental and physical health and well-being. I highly recommend the facility to everyone.
