Psychotherapy Q & A
What is psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is a process for treating mental health disorders with the assistance of a licensed psychotherapist who helps you develop healthier coping skills and treat underlying issues that cause your condition. Over a course of several talk therapy sessions, you learn how to recognize the situations that trigger negative thoughts and healthy ways to cope with these situations.
What does psychotherapy help with?
Psychotherapy is used to help people with a wide range of issues. It is used to treat mental health disorders such as:
- Anxiety disorders
- Mood disorders
- Eating disorders

However, psychotherapy does not always have to address mental health disorders. Talk therapy also helps you deal with life’s everyday stressors in a healthier way. Psychotherapy can help you:
- Resolve conflicts
- Communicate better

In some cases, talk therapy alone is not enough to help with your condition. If you experience severe symptoms, a psychiatrist can provide medication to supplement your talk therapy. Queens Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Psychology, PLLC, coordinates treatment with a psychiatrist in your area.
