What is psychotherapy? /
什么是心理治疗?

Psychotherapy or talk therapy is a way to help Clients in the face of emotional difficulties and personal concerns including, but are not limited to: difficulties to cope with daily life; trauma; the death of a loved one; and specific mental disorders, such as depression or anxiety disorders. Psychotherapy is a process to help Clients of all ages better understand one’s self, and how their thoughts and feelings influence the way they behave, react, and relate to others, leading an enjoyable and satisfying life.

The first psychotherapy session usually starts with an intake assessment of problematic symptoms and maladaptive behaviors that have affected the Client’s functioning in various aspects of life. Psychotherapy is a joint effort between Client and Therapist; the progress may vary based on the particular concerns or issues being addressed as well as the Client’s willingness to participate in the therapeutic process. 

心理治疗是为了帮助个案面对个人生活和情绪上的困扰包括面对日常生活的难题,创伤带来的影响,亲人离世和特定的心理疾病如忧郁症和焦虑症。心理治疗的目的是为了帮助个案在面对问题中能更加了解自己和拥有一个自在和满意的生活。

在初始阶段,治疗师会先评估个案所面对的困难,症状和行为,以了解这些困扰对其生活功能造成的影响。心理治疗的进展取决于各种因素包括问题的种类和个案是否愿意积极参与治疗以及在治疗过程中付出。
