There are many psychotherapy approaches that are provided by trained licensed professionals for the purpose of helping individuals who have life and relationship challenges, including psychological problems. The therapeutic relationship is contracted between a psychotherapist and a client, patient, family, couple, or a group.
Psychotherapy includes interactive processes between a qualified mental health professional (psychiatrist, psychologist, clinical social worker, licensed marriage family therapist, licensed counselor, or other trained practitioner) and person, couples, family or a group. The purpose of the counseling is to solve client’s problem, provide coping skills and increase higher level of well-being and functioning.
There are actually a large variety of methods, techniques and practices that are used in psychotherapy. The specific approach used in each situation can vary based upon a variety of factors, including the training and educational background of the therapist, the preferences of the client and the nature of problem the client is having. Depending on the approach used by the therapist, a wide range of techniques and strategies can be used and it is based on experiential relationship building, dialogue, communication and behavior change that are designed to improve client’s situation.
The emergence of new, hybrid and integrated approaches continues around the wide variety of theoretical backgrounds. Many psychotherapist use several approaches to therapy in their work and alter their approach based on client’s need. Although all modalities can be effective, individuals may find one approach more beneficial and appealing than another, or find that some approaches are better for a certain area of counseling or psychotherapy than others.
