Psychotherapy is also known as Talk therapy. It is aimed at addressing psychological complains by utilizing various psychotherapeutic techniques to assist the client to cope more optimally with feelings and symptoms related to the presenting difficulty.
The psychotherapeutic relationship is considered vital in the success of the therapy. Clients are therefore advised to seek out a psychotherapist that they feel they can trust and feel comfortable with. To use the analogy of seeing a physiotherapist when you have tangled muscles and walking out feeling sometimes more stiff, you know that the muscles will relax as the spasm dissipate.
Just so is psychotherapy – one sometimes feel emotional stirred up leaving the therapy room, however, great emotional healing follow as the brain form new connections and the necessary change is achieved.
