APPROACHES TO THERAPY

Many people are unaware that psychology is not a one-size-fits-all treatment. Within the rich history of psychology and psychological services, there are many branches of the field that are similar and different in their approaches to treatment. While many people are familiar with Sigmund Freud, known as the father of modern psychology, other approaches, or orientations, are less well-known.

Today, there are dozens of specific styles and orientations, and often therapists will draw from multiple areas of the field in their approach to treatment. In the following pages, you can learn more about just a few of the different approaches that are currently popular.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Your past is your story, but it is not your present or future. Therapists do spend time understanding how you got to where you are today, but generally speaking, all therapists are looking to help you feel better now and in the future.

Therapy is actually a very active process, where you will be challenged to become aware and responsible for your life. There is plenty of room in the experience to talk about the difficulties you face, but it is not just venting.

Therapy is for anyone who wants to make time for learning about themselves and making choices for a better tomorrow. Often, a therapist acts like a consultant on an individual level. No matter what’s going on in your life, making room to focus on yourself and your goals can be an experience you come to value and trust.
Therapy is not a threat to our independence. A therapist is a guide who helps reflect the best in you, and gives you time and space to come to your own conclusions. Often times, if we could gain the perspective that therapy offers, we would have done it already. There is no shame in making a commitment to be your best self.
