Psychotherapy Q & A

What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is an effective treatment for a variety of mental health and behavioral disorders. Also known as talk therapy, psychotherapy can be beneficial for supporting your overall mental and emotional health.

This type of therapy is highly effective at helping you recognize negative patterns in your life so you can make the appropriate changes. Psychotherapy helps trigger positive changes in your brain, similar to the way medications can alter your brain chemistry and provides you with coping skills to help you stay in control of your life.

The team at Freudly offers customized psychotherapy sessions virtually through phone calls and video chats. If you’re struggling with mental health issues, you can rely on same-day or next-day appointments to get the assistance you need without a long wait.

Why should I consider psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is typically a part of treatment for mental health and behavioral issues. In addition to any needed medications, the Freudly team generally recommends psychotherapy to help you better cope with and manage symptoms of:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

You can also use psychotherapy to work out personal issues that affect your life, career, family, and other relationships.

What can I expect during a psychotherapy session?

During your psychotherapy session, you meet one-on-one with your Freudly provider by phone or through an online video chat. Your provider reviews your medical history, your lifestyle, and your general health to get a better idea of what to focus on in your therapy.

Your Freudly provider may ask questions about your emotions and thought patterns to identify underlying issues that contribute to your depression, anxiety, and your general mental health. They encourage you to be open and honest about your feelings and thoughts in a judgment-free, safe space.

The team focuses on teaching you techniques to reset negative thought patterns and behaviors. They also work with you to help you better manage stress, anger, sadness, and other emotions in your daily life.

In addition to telemedicine visits with your Freudly provider, you may also benefit from other psychotherapy techniques you can do at home, such as journaling and art therapy as a way to express your emotions.

If you need someone to talk to about your emotional struggles or mental health concerns, call Freudly to schedule a same-day or next-day telemedicine appointment or request a virtual consultation online today.
