Psychotherapy is a process through which people can explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in order to achieve psychological or emotional health. The goals of psychotherapy are varied but may include relief from distress, enhancement of well-being, and the development of insight and self-awareness.
Psychotherapy can be conducted in individual, group, or family sessions. There are many different approaches that fall under the umbrella of psychotherapy, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), behavior therapy, psychoanalysis, existential therapy, Gestalt therapy, mindfulness based cognitive therapy (MBCT), and interpersonal therapy. What works best for one person may not work best for another.
