Psycho Therapy

MBS Holistic Clinic ~ Best Psychotherapy in Whitefield

Psychotherapy is the way to help people covering a broad spectrum of mental illnesses and emotional difficulties. It covers deep-seated problems, psychological or psychosomatic issues, and gives the client more clarity about their behaviors. Psychotherapy is the way that teaches one to respond to challenging situations in life with healthy coping skills.

When a client first comes to MBS, they have a thorough discussion about the client’s problems. In such a manner, the best type of therapy gets recommended to the client. The treatment’s length will depend on the sessions’ frequency, the severity of the client’s symptoms, and how quickly they progress.

Psychotherapy commonly includes solutions for the impact of trauma, medical illness or loss, mental disorders like depression or anxiety. A psychotherapist may be a psychologist, a licensed clinical social worker, a professional counselor, or a psychiatrist.

Psychotherapy in MBS helps to deal with:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Mood disorders
  • Addictions
  • Eating disorders
  • Personality disorders (e.g., OCD)
  • Schizophrenia
  • Maladaptive behaviors (like depressive isolation)
  • Anger management
  • PTSD

When Is It Best To Seek Therapy?

Often people find themselves in the dilemma of whether the issues they are dealing with need the help of a therapist. If thoughts cause distress or interfere with daily life activity, then one must visit a therapist. Grief can be in the form of negative thoughts, feelings, behaviors, or even a bodily sensation such as pain or fatigue. It is important not to wait for too long to experience severe symptoms. Therapy also helps when one cannot focus on school, experience addiction, or have suicidal thoughts. Moreover, a trained therapist can help people make lifestyle changes and identify underlying causes of symptoms. Therapists provide strategies for changing unwanted thoughts and behaviors. 

Types of psychotherapy

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy(CBT)

It is the form of therapy that helps people change thinking and behavior patterns that are harmful or ineffective. Consequently, it helps to replace these disturbing thoughts and behaviors with a healthy mentality. CBT helps to tackle depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, trauma-related disorders, and eating disorders. 

  • Interpersonal therapy (IPT)

The treatment helps patients understand underlying interpersonal issues that are troublesome. IPT deals with unresolved grief, changes in social or work roles, conflicts with significant others, and problems relating to others. The client learns new ways to communicate or express their feelings and helps in building relationships. 

  • Psychodynamic therapy

Psychodynamic therapy is about how childhood experiences influence behavior and mental well-being. Unconscious thoughts embedded through childhood trauma may hamper current thoughts and actions. This form of therapy helps an individual feel more in control of their life. Psychoanalysis is a more intense form of psychodynamic treatment. 

  • Dialectical behavior therapy 

It is a specific type of CBT that helps regulate emotions like chronic suicidal thoughts, eating disorders, personality disorders, and PTSD. The therapy incorporates teaching new skills to help people change unhealthy behavior. 

  • Supportive therapy 

The method is about encouragement to help patients develop their self-esteem, reduce anxiety, strengthen coping mechanisms, and improve social and community functioning. 

  • Family therapy

Family therapy is a safe space for family members to understand each other and deal with internal problems. When problems stem from family relationships, family therapy becomes crucial.

  • Group therapy

In group therapy sessions, people interact with the therapist and others who are experiencing similar challenges. This kind of therapy helps people realize that they are not alone with their problems.

What To Expect From Psychotherapy?

The first session of therapy is about gathering information about the client’s problems. The therapist speaks with the person about their past, physical, mental, and emotional health. They also discuss why the person decided to seek therapy. It takes a few sessions for a therapist to understand the situation and then address the best course of action. Everything shared between a client, and a therapist is highly confidential. 

The first session also helps one decide if one is comfortable with the therapist for successful treatment. Treatment goals, session length, the type of therapy preferred, and how many sessions are needed. 

Many therapists encourage their clients to speak for most of the session and take the role of being a good listener. It can be hard to talk about past experiences for the client, but eventually, the client opens up with time. Sessions can stir up intense emotions, and one can quickly become upset, angry, or sad during treatment. However, over time people learn to cope up with these emotions and face their problems. 

Many therapists assign “homework” in the form of particular tasks to help people build on topics discussed in therapy. Individuals are always entitled to ask questions and speak out their opinions to the therapist. With time people develop a more positive mood and healthier thinking patterns with the help of therapy.

The psychotherapy experience and the time it takes to see an improvement will also vary for different individuals. A person might notice a difference after around six to 12 sessions, while others may need ongoing treatment for several years.

Moreover, Psychotherapy is beneficial for exploring the problem confidentially and enabling clients to see things in a new way. The treatment helps people to identify the problem they are facing and come up with a solution.

Clients learn more about themselves, their goals, and their values. Through therapy, they identify causes of tension in relationships and develop skills for facing challenges. People can overcome specific problems, such as phobia, anxiety, and depression.

To make the optimum use of psychotherapy, the person should desire to participate and actively engage in the treatment. Clients must religiously attend appointments and complete any assignments between sessions. Most importantly, they must be honest when describing symptoms and situations. If they are not honest with themselves, then they can never overcome their problems.

To Summarize:

Psychotherapy is a means to help people with various mental health needs. Alongside medication, psychotherapy is an excellent way of healing. The effectiveness of psychotherapy depends on seeking therapy and the relationship between the therapist and the individual.

A trustworthy build-up between the individual and the therapist is essential to the process.
