Psychotherapy for stress

Stress is a common issue that many people are dealing with. It can be caused by many factors, such as work, family, or even financial problems. According to the AIS – The America Institute of Stress – about 33% of people report feeling extreme stress — and more than 73% report physical consequences due to that stress. Stress can be a debilitating condition and how you manage it is important. 

Psychiatry is a medical speciality that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental disorders. Psychotherapy is a form of mental health treatment which involves talking with a professional therapist. Together, they can help people with stress. Psychiatrists and psychotherapists work together to diagnose and treat patients with stress-related disorders like depression, anxiety, panic disorder, PTSD  – post-traumatic stress disorder -, OCD  -obsessive compulsive disorder -, bipolar disorder or schizophrenia. These specialists are trained to provide patients with the most appropriate medication for their condition as well as psychotherapy sessions. Combining these two treatments can be very helpful for those who suffer from chronic or severe mental health problems like depression or anxiety disorder.
