Coming Soon - Psychotherapy
Both Individual Psychotherapy & Group Psychotherapy
Psychotherapy sounds intimidating. But this talk therapy with a licensed psychologist, therapist or counselor at MedPsych Integrated in Raleigh, North Carolina is more natural than you think.
Sessions are often one-on-one in a private setting with confidentiality between you and your therapist. You develop mutual trust and honesty that helps you openly cope with problems in your everyday life. Other psychotherapy sessions can include your significant other, family members or other important people in your life.
In talk therapy, you can heal from a range of experiences, such as:
- Mental illness
- Emotional difficulties
- Medical illness or injury
- Loss or grief
- Death of a loved one
Through treatment, you can also find relief for troubling symptoms. Therapy helps you improve functioning, heal from your past and increase well-being.
Types of Psychotherapy
There are multiple types of psychotherapy. Additionally, the right methods for you depend on the symptoms you suffer and your mental disorder. Also, your psychotherapist may provide talk therapy alone, with other therapies or in combination with prescribed medication.
Types of psychotherapy at MedPsych Integrated include:
- Psychodynamic therapy
- Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
- Dialectic behavior therapy (DBT)
- Family and couple therapy
- Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR)
- Interpersonal therapy
- Acceptance and commitment therapy
Therapy is not always comfortable. Additionally, sometimes you need to dig into deep problems or trauma, to work past these issues causing your symptoms. Also, it can take work. However, to your benefit, your psychotherapist stays with you and guides you each step of the way.
More About Psychotherapy
Psychotherapy is a broad category of mental health problem treatments. But these methods all involve talking with a licensed mental health specialist. During your sessions, you learn about your feelings, moods, thoughts, and behaviors. Also, if you have a mental disorder, you also learn about that condition while developing coping skills for dealing with it on a day-to-day basis. Furthermore, you learn how to respond to life challenges and take control of your life.
Conditions Treated with Psychotherapy
Did you know that therapy can benefit virtually anyone, even people without psychiatric disorders? However, at the same time, it helps treat almost any mental health problem. Furthermore, some of these conditions include:
- Anxiety disorders
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Mood disorders, such as depression and bipolar disorder
- Disordered eating
- Personality disorders
- Schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders
This type of treatment provides coping skills to get you through many of life’s stresses. Through therapy, you can resolve conflicts, relieve stress or anxiety, cope with changes. Additionally, learning to control your unhealthy reactions and behaviors, recover from trauma, cope with sexual problems, and sleep better. Also, therapy can even help you come to terms with physical health problems and guide you toward a healthier lifestyle. Of course, to achieve these benefits, you must actively participate.
