 “Psychotherapy” is a medical term, in which various mental illnesses are treated through oral and psychological technologies. During this process, an experienced and trained psychologist (psychotherapist) helps the patient to overcome any particular mental illness or stress in the patient’s life and depression. The choice of technologies and methods used during therapy depends on the physician’s experience and perspective. However, in all forms of psychotherapy, the thoughts and conditions born in the heart and mind are dealt with through the cooperation and communication of the physician and the patient.

Why is psycho therapy important?

According to medical experts, psychotherapy is not a normal conversation, but it is a scientific process in which psychotherapist establishes a safe, helpful and confidential environment for the patient, so that the patient can speak openly about the realities of his life in this friendly environment. During mental illness, many people feel afraid to share their feelings with anyone, it is difficult for them to share their feelings with relatives or friends. In such a case, an exchange with a psycho therapist leads to positive results.

 The results of a research on psychotherapy show that the role of psychotherapy to eliminate mental disorders is as effective as medicine, and through this a long and positive change is ensured in the patient’s psychological conditions. In this study, patients were divided into two groups to find out the importance of psychotherapy, one group patients were given psychotherapy while the other was not, and when some time both groups were confronted, it proved that the psychotherapy group was not only psychotherapy but also physically healthy, compared to the group whose treatment did not include psychotherapy.
