Psychotherapy Q & A

What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy generally refers to any type of talk therapy that takes place between you and a trained therapist in a safe and comforting environment. You’ll explore your past and current emotions, experiences, behaviors, and relationships. As you talk, your therapist gently guides the discussion, helping you see patterns of behavior and ways of interacting with others that negatively affect your life.

The therapists at New York Neuropsychological Services help you learn why you struggle with your unique issues. Through psychotherapy, you’ll gain insight into your thinking, memory, emotional functioning, and behavior, and then learn the coping skills needed to move forward and overcome your challenges.

What mental health problems can benefit from psychotherapy?

Many patients seek therapy to get through a stressful event, such as separating from their partner or the death of a loved one. Others have a history of failed relationships, they struggle with anger management, or they just have a general sense that they need to change. Any emotional or behavioral problem that interferes with living a satisfying and thriving life can benefit from psychotherapy.

Psychotherapy is a fundamental part of treatment for most mental health disorders. Even when you take medication to target your symptoms, you’ll get the best results when you also participate in talk therapy.

The team at New York Neuropsychological Services offers psychotherapy for many conditions, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Cognitive impairment
