Faced with stress, depression, angry bouts, and ill temper? Unable to cope with changed conditions, be at home, school, college, workplace, or any other place? Undergoing a bad patch in your relationships, including marriage?

For all such problems and more, the solution lies in one magical word—Psychotherapist.

So who is a Psychotherapist, who holds the guiding light to our future?

Psychotherapists are specialists in the field of mental health, psychology, psychotherapy, human behaviour, and others, who interact with individuals and treat them to help them overcome their diverse problems. It is difficult to become a psychotherapist as it requires extensive education and training.

After specialising in a particular field or branch of mental health and psychotherapy, Psychotherapists also have to undergo supervised training and internship in order to be able to practice independently. Complying with standards set by authorities, Psychotherapists work interactively with their clients to lessen their problems.

Psychotherapy, a technique used by Psychotherapists, incudes extensive, detailed, and uninhibited talk and interaction between the Psychotherapist and an individual. Such an interaction helps the individual to open up and talk about the problems, feelings, worries, and other concerns. By uninhibited interaction, the Psychotherapist as well as the individual realise the root of problems and take proper action to solve them.

As confidential information is shared by the Psychotherapist and individuals during therapy, it is highly important for individuals to be with Psychotherapists with whom they feel comfortable and secure. It is also important to ascertain the credentials and expertise of a Psychotherapist before seeking their advice and treatment.

Different techniques and therapies used by Psychotherapists include family therapy, relaxation therapy or training, meditation, biofeedback, and behavioural therapy, among others.

Thus, using a variety of treatment procedures, Psychotherapists usually help individuals to discover the root of their problems, feel hopeful again, and strive towards bettering their lives.

When all our attempts end up in despair, Psychotherapist is the only person who can show us the right way, infuse in us the hope to succeed, and guide us to a better and hopeful tomorrow.
