What Are The Different Types Of Therapy Issues?: There is a wide variety and types of therapy issues that might bring you to therapy and counselling, ranging from mental health diagnoses, physical and emotional problems, different types of behavioural disorders, types of human sexuality issues, through to relationship troubles, family tension or emotional issues. Common types of client symptoms are related to stress, anxiety, relationship problems, anger management, depression and sexual problems. It’s not unusual for a therapist to diagnose that their client has several issues that are present at the same time.
The majority of the therapy modalities available do not apply to just one mental health issue or illness. Therapists and counsellors can use an approach to treat depression, for example, but there is no such thing as ‘depression therapy’, this is because different types of therapy techniques are often used interchangeably to suit the client’s individual issues and symptoms. Nonetheless, some types of therapy are especially effective and unique for certain issues and illnesses.
If you feel like there is something holding you back from being as happy as you might be, therapy could be for you. A therapist can help you explore issues in your life, identify patterns and work on solutions, or simply provide a safe place for you to express your feelings when you’re struggling.
With the advent of Covid-19 accompanied by lockdown measures and social distancing, there was a natural move from the clients we work with to online therapy and counselling due to the impracticalities of meeting with a therapist or counsellor in person. Now that the restrictions have been lifted there is a social sigh of relief that face-to-face therapy can resume, offering a more intimate and personal therapy experience with your therapist.
