The Basics of Psychotherapy

Many people are nervous or anxious when they think about psychotherapy. At Philippe Jacquet & Associates, clients will find their way to an emotionally safe and comfortable place from their first appointment.

There are many different therapeutic models in psychotherapy, but all models focus on a relationship between the professional and the client that allows for deep introspection and the ability to explore very personal issues.

Talk therapy is designed to provide the client and therapist with the opportunity to go back in time and explore how negative thoughts developed. Often this starts with dysfunctional families, but it can also be caused by trauma, the breakup of a relationship or mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Through the psychotherapy, which is typically a weekly appointment for the initial period of treatment, clients can get a clear understanding of these negative thoughts that are driving the behaviors in the present. This is true for addictions, challenges with anxiety and depression, relationship disorders, and problems for children with disabilities, which are negatively impacting the life of a child, teen or adult.

The natural outcome of this enhanced understanding is to become more of a positive, positive coping strategy. The psychotherapist and the client work together to create a new life.
