Psychotherapy is a general term for treating emotional issues by talking.
Through talking with a psychotherapist you learn about your condition and your moods, feelings, thoughts and behaviors. Psychotherapy helps you develop tools for taking control of your life and respond to challenging situations with healthy coping skills.
