Psychotherapy is an alternative treatment technique used to treat different forms of mental illness and disorders. It can be either used alone or along with other therapies. During psychotherapy sessions, the patients speaks with the therapist about their mental illness issues. The therapist helps to identify the factors which trigger the mental disorders. Once the factors and stimuli triggering the illness are identified, the therapist can work together with the patient to resolve these problems and treat the mental disorder. It improves the problem solving and coping mechanisms of the patients and they develop better responses to what is causing the disorder.
