In addition to CBT and psychodynamic psychotherapy, there are quite a number of psychotherapeutic methods in which therapists are trained. They all have their advantages. Some work better for certain individuals than others. Most therapists draw upon their knowledge of multiple methods and tailor the therapy to what they think best suits the client. That selection could be based on the client’s personality profile or the nature of his or her conflicts or symptoms, e.g. anxiety, depression, obsessive thoughts, etc. With careful consideration, the therapist constructs the best treatment plan he or she can to fit the circumstances of the client.
If you’re dealing with depression, anxiety, or another mental health concern, it can impact all aspects of your life. You may become distant in your relationships, struggle in your career or even find it difficult to enjoy your favorite activities. When faced with a physical ailment, it’s perfectly reasonable to see a doctor for professional advice. Why shouldn’t mental and emotional health be treated with the same importance?
