What is psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy involves communication between patients and therapists that is intended to help people:
Find relief from emotional distress, as in becoming less anxious, fearful or depressed;
Seek solutions to problems in their lives, such as dealing with disappointment, grief, family issues, and job or career dissatisfaction, and
Modify ways of thinking and acting that are preventing them from working productively and enjoying personal relationships. (american psychological association)
