Therapy Guide

There are many types of therapy embracing a variety of different approaches and techniques. Although some do not fall into the category of psychotherapy all are intended to bring about positive change and provide solutions to problems and issues.

The menu on the left lists some of the most common types of psychotherapy. You can follow the links for an explanation of each therapeutic approach and the kinds of problems that each method is best suited to solve.

Some of the therapies listed are practiced exclusively or as part of a combination of treatment. It should also be noted that some of the newer approaches, due to their recent conception, may not have structures of accreditation in place.

So a code of ethics, that practitioners of more established approaches adhere to, may not yet exist. Although this may not necessarily reflect on a therapy's effectiveness, it would be worth keeping this in mind when pursuing information about certain therapeutic techniques.
