Psychotherapy Q & A

What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is a talking treatment for people with mental health conditions, such as:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Substance use disorder (addiction)
  • Bipolar disorder     

It can also help those experiencing challenges like relationship problems, stress, loss, and other significant events.

The Nova Wellness Health team’s psychotherapy sessions are confidential, so you can discuss your feelings and problems honestly. The team uses various techniques to suit each patient’s specific needs.

What forms of psychotherapy are available?

Numerous different kinds of psychotherapy are available, some highly specialized and some used widely to help people recover from or manage their mental illness. The most common psychotherapies include:

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
CBT approaches the problem by looking at the issues affecting your daily life. For example, you might be unable to leave home because you have an anxiety disorder and fear experiencing a panic attack. CBT teaches you to understand how your negative thoughts limit you and then change them.

You develop healthier, more realistic thought processes and discover how to deal with problems without such disabling distress. CBT is particularly valuable for anxiety disorders, PTSD, OCD, ADHD, and mild-to-moderate depression.

Psychoanalytic therapy
Psychoanalytic techniques take a more in-depth approach to dealing with the underlying emotional problems affecting your mental health. Your therapist helps you locate and work through the negative effects of experiences and traumas from your past, reducing their impact on your current health.

Some psychotherapies can last for months or years, while others, like solution-focused brief therapy, are designed to take 8-10 sessions. The Nova Wellness Health team selects therapies that best suit your condition and preferences.

What does having psychotherapy involve?

Nova Wellness Health uses a secure telehealth system, so you can attend your therapy sessions remotely or in person. Telehealth is a convenient platform that uses internet technology to communicate with your therapist via your laptop, desktop, tablet, or smartphone.

Every session is private and nonjudgmental. You can speak openly about whatever’s on your mind and be sure of getting sensible, helpful feedback and support. Your therapist is a trusted partner who focuses on your best interests and recovery.
