What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy comes in numerous forms, all of which are based on talking or finding an alternative outlet to express your feelings and thoughts. Examples of psychotherapy techniques include:

  • Psychodynamic therapy
  • Interpersonal therapy
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy

The team at Abbey Neuropsychology Clinic has extensive experience in using a range of psychotherapy techniques to help patients and their families with a wide range of psychological and developmental conditions.

How does psychotherapy help children?

Abbey Neuropsychology Clinic is home to the Bay Area’s leading experts in childhood growth and development. The specialist child therapists offer counseling and therapy for children and their families and have extensive experience working with children suffering from:

  • Trauma
  • Bullying
  • Fear
  • Anxiety
  • Grief

They use a variety of play and art-based psychotherapies in addition to parent coaching, which all helps to help nurture your child and bring out their best selves. The team can help your child when they need support because of the death of a loved one, or if they’re struggling to cope because of family relationship problems.

They can assist a child who needs help to learn how to make and keep friends, and they also provide skills and strategies to children who have learning disabilities and developmental problems like ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder).

How does psychotherapy help adults?

The team at Abbey Neuropsychology Clinic takes a pragmatic, individualized approach to psychotherapy. Patients are encouraged to identify goals and work towards them in an empathic and supportive environment with their therapist.

Many people need help with improving their relationships, reducing anxiety, dealing with low mood, or recovering from a traumatic experience. Others aren’t quite sure what they need, other than being aware that something needs to change in their lives.

Couples therapy is also a specialty at Abbey Neuropsychology Clinic, so if you need help with an intimate relationship, you can get expert support for you and your partner.

The main psychotherapies used for adults at Abbey Neuropsychology Clinic are interpersonal and solution-focused therapies. These approaches help you improve your relationships with others as well as yourself and find actionable solutions to your problems.
