For Clients Information & Resources

Which type of psychotherapy is right for me?

There are quite a large number of psychotherapies, the mainstream orientations are the following, and are available at Remedy Clinic:

  • C.B.T – cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Psychodynamic
  • Psychoanalytic
  • Gestalt
  • Humanistic
  • Integrative / Holistic
  • Existential

Some therapies are directive, and others are non-directive. They all share an element of collaboration and rely on the development of a solid relationship between the therapist and client. All therapies seek to address the same fundamental goal for clients. This goal is personal growth through exploration and understanding – Which will help individuals break free of life’s difficult patterns, and resolve personal issues that seem to linger.

The process of psychotherapy is an individual one. Your therapist will make you aware how they work with their clients. You will be able to get a feel for the sessions after your first one. Feel free to ask as many questions as you like about the process. At the end of the first session, you can decide if it is the right therapy for you.
