Psychotherapy is used to treat mental and emotional disorders via psychological techniques that foster speaking about conflicts and an objective listener providing insight to these challenges. The goal is to relieve the client of symptoms and encourage changes in behavior, which lead to improved self-awareness and interaction on both a personal and professional level.
All of these words are typically interchangeable with the term "psychotherapy" being the most specific. It describes the process by which psychological issues are dealt with in therapy. Therapy is a more general term and could refer to physical therapy as of any illness or disability. Counseling is often used to explain a conversation where advice is given and can refer to a number of relationships including religious or legal counseling.
If you are feeling discomfort in your life and feel the need to share with a safe, objective and caring person what is really going on inside your head, it is probably time to reach out. Psychotherapy is the opportunity for you to be heard in an environment where you will not be judged, but will be supported and you will be able to uncover, discover and discard the ideas that no longer serve you.
