Which Mental Health Treatment Would Work For You?

Updated on November 9, 2017

Types of Therapy

  • Cognitive Therapy - Cognitive therapy focuses on present thinking, behavior, and communication rather than on past experiences and is oriented toward problem solving
  • Group Therapy - A form of psychotherapy in which a group of patients meet to describe and discuss their problems together under the supervision of a therapist
  • CBT - Guided by empirical research, CBT focuses on the development of personal coping strategies that target solving current problems and changing unhelpful patterns in cognitions (e.g. thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes), behaviors, and emotional regulation
  • Interpersonal Therapy - This is a talking treatment that helps people with depression to identify and address problems in their relationships with family, partners and friends
  • Behavioral Activation - Behavioural activation is a talking therapy that encourages people to develop more positive behaviour, such as planning activities and doing constructive things that they would usually avoid doing
  • Mindfulnes-based Therapies - Mindfulness-based therapies help you focus on your thoughts and feelings without becoming overwhelmed by them. They can be used to help treat depression, stress, anxiety and addiction
  • Psychotherapy - psychotherapy involves talking more about how your past influences what happens in the present and the choices you make

All of the therapies listed above take a different approach to mental health. It’s important to figure out which one is best for you.

They’re There to Help You

It’s important to remember that your therapist will always want what’s best for you. It’s good to trust their judgement.
