What is Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy involves a variety of treatment techniques which helps the person identify and address the factors that may be triggering their problem. By understanding the behaviors, emotions, and ideas that contribute to their distress, the person can regain a sense of control over life's events. Cognitive strategies provide the person with practical and powerful skills that can be applied as effective tools over a lifetime. These approaches have been shown to be especially effective in the treatment of anxiety and depression.
