What is Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is a treatment method for persons suffering from any sort of mental disease that aims to help them comprehend their condition. At positive Insight we adapt case history approach to understand the issues of clients in details, develop insight using psycho-education method, and adapt individualistic approach catering to the needs of client.
There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all strategy in psychotherapy. Because we believe that each person is distinct and has a distinct thought pattern, our approaches to problems are also distinct. Our methods are based on the notion of tailor-made suitability. Our tactics are one-of-a-kind and time-tested, and they have offered many people a ray of hope.
What are the different types of Psychotherapy?
This therapy is founded on the idea that behavioral is learned as a result of prior experiences and may be unlearned or reconditioned through association without having to look back in time to figure out why the behavioral occurred.
It is frequently effective in the treatment of compulsive and obsessive behavioral, fears, phobias, and addictions. Some of the techniques used are aversion therapy, Systematic desensitization and exposure response prevention to name a few.
COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY (CBT)
Cognitive and behavioral methods are combined in this style of therapy. With the help of relaxation techniques, clients are taught how to shift their attitudes and expectations. Stress-related illnesses, phobias, obsessions, eating disorders, and serious depression have all shown to benefit with CBT (sometimes when combined with drug treatment). Some of the techniques used are cognitive restructuring, Guided discovery and Exposure therapy to name a few.
This therapy gets its name from the German phrase for a well-organized whole. Gestalt therapy, developed by Fritz Perls, focuses on the client’s entire experience, including feelings, thoughts, and behaviors.
By analyzing their behavior and body language, as well as talking about their feelings, the client improves self-awareness. Acting out scenarios and recalling dreams are common components of this strategy. Some of the techniques used are empty Chair, role play and locating emotions to name a few.
Mindfulness is a method of paying attention to one’s thoughts consciously. It is based on the concept that a single bad thought can trigger a chain reaction of negative ideas.
This method helps people to be conscious of their thoughts, allowing the initial unpleasant thought to be “caught” and treated as a “thought” rather than a fact. This stops the negative thought reaction from continuing. Some of the techniques used are sitting meditation, mindful eating and walking meditation to name a few.
This method, which stems from the “personal growth movement,” encourages people to consider their feelings and accept responsibility for their thoughts and behaviors.
The focus is on self-improvement and realizing one’s full potential. The therapy is generally defined as “holistic,” or looking at the individual as a whole, and it takes a “client-centered” or “non-directive” approach. Some of the techniques used are identifying your needs, finding solutions and dealing with issues in the here and now to name a few.
This sort of therapy employs the mind’s power to change behaviour. It is founded on the idea that past experiences can harm one’s self-image, affecting one’s attitude, emotions, and capacity to handle particular situations.
It works by assisting the client in identifying, challenging, and changing unfavorable mental pictures of oneself, so avoiding negative responses and behavior. Some of the techniques used are journaling and thought records, activity scheduling and behavior activation and role play to name a few.
This method emphasizes the role of the subconscious and previous experiences in affecting current behavior. The client is encouraged to discuss their early relationships with their parents and other significant persons with their therapist, while the therapist concentrates on the client/therapist relationship dynamics.
This style of therapy employs the technique of ‘transference,’ in which the client projects his or her sentiments from previous meaningful relationships onto the therapist. The psychodynamic approach is based on psychoanalysis, although it usually results in a faster resolution of emotional issues. Some of the techniques used are free Association and dream analysis to name a few.
DIALECTICAL BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY (DBT)
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) was used to create DBT (CBT). While the major goal of CBT is to modify behavior, DBT is built on accepting the client’s behavior, which might help certain clients who are experiencing very strong emotions avoid feeling rejected by the heavy focus on change.
DBT tries to strike a balance between acceptance and change. DBT therapists utilize particular tactics to show clients that their behavior, while not in their best interests in the long run, makes sense because it is frequently the only way they have learned to deal with such intense emotions; and it appears to have beneficial short-term repercussions.
However, the therapist can also challenge the client to make changes in their lives and to discover new ways to cope with their distress. Some of the techniques used are mindfulness; distress tolerance; interpersonal effectiveness; and emotion regulation to name a few.
Benefits of Psychotherapy
I had a few issues I needed to work through, but the idea of seeing a therapist was just uncommon. I also had some concerns about privacy. I was overwhelmed, and so stressed I was getting physically ill. Working with Ms. Kamna Yadav has helped tremendously in just a few weeks. She helped me organize & prioritizing and now I actually have time to do things. Ms. Kamna Yadav helped me find my sense of power again. My career is back on track and I’m in a loving relationship. I am glad I made that call & did therapy sessions with her. She genuinely cared about helping me succeed and was a constant support through my journey. –
I have attended multiple sessions with Dr. Kamna. To me she has been an amazing support. When I approached her I was struggling a lot with negative emotions and thoughts. She helped me analyse my thoughts and moved me towards positivity. Through sessions I have found a lot of self-confidence, encouragement and joy which was lacking before. She is great at her work, can connect easily and make a person feel comfortable to share whatever the person is going through.
