Finding the Right Psychotherapy For You
At DiRoma Therapy, we believe in providing a safe space for patients who are in need of reliable and judgment free therapy services. Psychotherapy is a popular service we provide to help patients navigate their lives in a healthy and sustainable way. For many, having an outlet to speak to and discuss personal details with can provide patients with a sense of structure and support in their lives.
Psychotherapy is a therapy method that utilizes communication with mental health professionals to overcome one’s obstacles and offer healthy coping skills and guidance. Although psychotherapy methods can vary, the general concept is to offer individuals scheduled therapy through repetitive sessions and over a subjective period of time.
A popular psychotherapy technique is cognitive behavioral therapy or CBT. This can be used for individuals who may need support in identifying unhealthy or negative thoughts so they can replace them with healthier and more positive alternatives. Integrating healthy coping skills and positive habits that can increase one’s quality of life is the main goal of CBT therapy.
Another form of psychotherapy is acceptance and commitment therapy, or ACT, which involves working through a patient’s ability to accept and process their thoughts and emotions. Rather than feeling guilty over one’s feelings about their life situations, ACT encourages patients to accept their feelings as appropriate and move forward in their lives.
Psychotherapy can be incredibly helpful for individuals who are struggling to find a sense of stability in their own thoughts and lives. Offering techniques to understand difficult and negative thoughts, behaviors, and past traumas, can drastically increase one’s quality of life.
Therapy can be difficult for those who are new to mental health services. That’s why each patient is encouraged to go at their own pace and will be guided by their therapist to open up in respect to the patients comfort level.
Psychotherapy can also involve hands-on activities like written exercises or doing readings after a session. The intention of worksheets or additional exercises is to provide patients with support beyond just their usual therapy sessions. These tools can help patients identify their feelings through written or digital practices and apply lessons or skills learned in therapy.
There are many different techniques and methods involved within psychotherapy, because each patient is different. During the first therapy appointment, many therapists conduct what is called an intake. This is generally where a therapist will get to know you, explore what options for therapy you are most comfortable with and will try to get a better idea of who you are as a person. This beginning therapy session will help guide a mental health professional towards a psychotherapy type that is best suited to the patient and their needs as well as comfortability.
DiRoma Therapy aims to help individuals achieve a sense of control and confidence in dealing with their emotions and navigating their lives in a healthy way. We offer a variety of psychotherapy services as well as intervention services and speaking engagements.
