Individual psychotherapy. Talk therapy is an effective treatment of mental health issues. When you talk with a psychologist, you learn about your moods, feelings, thoughts and behaviors so that you can better take charge of your life by responding to challenging situations with healthy coping skills. Consider psychotherapy if you are not feeling like yourself, you don’t enjoy things,you are abusing food, alcohol or drugs to deal with pain, if you have suffered a loss or trauma, or if you have been given a psychiatric diagnosis. Psychotherapy is also helpful for people who have extreme or unusual sensory experiences, sometimes described as mania, hearing voices or having visions.
