Who and how we help

Psychotherapy & psychiatry for adults

Psychotherapy and psychiatry are two different types of mental health treatments. Psychotherapy is a talking therapy, where a professional helps you to talk about your thoughts and feelings in order to understand them better. A psychiatrist is a medical doctor who prescribes medication and can refer you for other treatments if needed.

Psychotherapy is used to help people with emotional problems such as depression, anxiety or phobias. It can also be used to help people develop skills for managing their thoughts, feelings and behaviors more effectively. The aim of psychotherapy is not to cure problems but instead to improve the person’s ability to cope with their difficulties in the future.

A psychiatrist will usually only diagnose mental health conditions  – such as depression –  after taking a thorough history from the patient and examining them physically. They may then prescribe medication or refer the patient on for further treatment such as psychotherapy or cognitive behavioral therapy  – CBT.

Both are different, but can work in unison — each patient is unique and only a trained professional can assess what they need in order to get better.

Others may live in areas where it is too expensive for them to travel to a therapist’s office, so they choose an alternative option – seeing one on their computer screen instead of in person.
