What happens in therapy?

Therapy (also called counseling, psychotherapy, or “talk” therapy) is a dynamic process of self-exploration in a safe, contained, space with another person (the therapist). Every therapist has their own style of connecting with clients but should always use evidence-based approaches to assist clients in identifying patterns in thought and behavior which are problematic. Together, therapist and client work to replace the destructive thoughts and behaviors with healthy, productive ones.
