Starting Treatment With a Psychologist

What are psychologists?

Psychologists are mental health professionals that provide psychotherapy services and diagnoses for their clients. They have more research-focused training than most therapists, as they are more medically educated and receive a more general education about therapeutic approaches and theory.

How do psychologists work?

Thriveworks psychologists in Bedford, NH provide standard psychotherapy services, tailoring treatment to each client and their unique concerns. However, they can also provide diagnoses to clients when appropriate, something that therapists and counselors cannot do. Finally, in some states in the U.S., they are allowed to prescribe medication.

Can I see a psychologist in person or online?

How long would I see a psychologist?

Psychological treatment at Thriveworks Bedford is very individualized and specific to each client, which means that the duration of treatment is often varied depending on a client’s condition or disorder, the state of their symptoms, and their specific goals.

What Do Psychologists Do?

Psychologists specialize in the study of psychology and mental health. They have a few main duties and objectives, which include:

  • Conducting research to study and understand human behaviors
  • Collecting information by observing and asking questions
  • Utilizing their skills to help their clients understand themselves better
  • Working with clients to improve problematic thoughts and behaviors
  • Designing and implementing treatment plans, which typically include therapy
  • Working closely with other medical professionals to best help their clients

These functions ultimately enable psychologists to help their clients. These mental health professionals see a wide range of clients, from people with symptoms of depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses to those with relationship issues, problematic stress, and other challenges that harm their mental well-being.

Different Types of Psychotherapy

There are many different types of psychotherapy, which are utilized in various circumstances. For example, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) focuses on helping individuals understand and correct harmful thinking patterns. Several other forms of therapy include:

  • Humanistic therapies
  • Family therapy
  • Couples therapy
  • Interpersonal therapy
  • Psychodynamic therapy
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT)

These therapies can help people with depression, anxiety, eating disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and other mental health disorders. They can also help repair relationships with romantic partners, family members, friends, and others.

My wife and I had an excellent experience with our amazing counselor Sam. We reached out for help with communication and intimacy issues and he helped us make real positive change in our lives. The strategies we developed with Sam have made a huge difference and we feel more connected than ever. He was always attentive, thoughtful, and accommodating to our busy schedules. The option to meet remotely or in person was a huge plus for us. We highly recommend his services.
