Some Common Questions About Therapy
What is Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy, or talk therapy, is a way to help people with a wide variety of mental illnesses and emotional difficulties. This type of therapy can help eliminate or control distressing symptoms so a person can function better and can improve well-being and healing.
Problems confronted by psychotherapy include difficulties in coping with everyday life; the effects of trauma, medical illness or loss, like the death of a loved one; and specific mental disorders, like depression or anxiety. There are several different types of psychotherapy and some types may work better with certain problems or issues than others. Psychotherapy may be used in combination with medication or other therapies.
What's the Difference Between Counselling and Psychotherapy?
‘Psychotherapy’ and ‘counselling’ can be similar, however not the same. Each having their own process in helping someone come to terms and discover solutions to their problems.

However, both have different methods in approach, underpinning model and thinking.
  • Counselling has more of a helping approach that focuses on the emotional and intellectual experience of an individual: how a client is feeling and their thoughts about the problem they need help with.
  • Psychotherapy, however, has a psychodynamic approach—it encourages the client to go back to their past experiences and find out how these experiences contribute to their current 'problem'.
A psychotherapist helps a client to become more aware and conscious of experiences and its effects which they were not aware of before. On the other hand, Counsellors are not too concerned with the client's past experiences but are generally trained in humanistic approach that uses techniques of client-centred therapy.
What Can Psychologists Help With?
In Mind Therapy's North Lakes psychologists see a different types of people for a variety of reasons including marital and family problems, illness or injury, grievance, anxiety, loneliness, depression, psychological aspects of medical illnesses, addictions, behavioral problems, disturbances in eating and sleeping, sexual issues, difficulties at work, children’s educational problems, and caring for the elderly. Psychologists also assist during a crisis, natural disasters, and even terrorism.
Whatever your problems are, a Professional Clinical Psychologist is someone you can depend on. Together, in a confidential and supportive atmosphere, you and your psychologist will work to understand and resolving problems that have not been dealt with your best efforts.
What's It Like To See a Psychologist?
Feeling anxious about meeting with a psychologist for the first time is typical and a great many people feel this as well. It may take more than one session before you feel good enough to open up about everything that is going on with you, or you may feel better even after your first visit. It's distinctive for everybody. On the off chance that you feel somewhat disrupted after your first session, it doesn't mean you should abandon the thought. Converse with your psychologist about it, and plan an approach to manage these emotions. It may take a couple of sessions before you begin to see the advantages, so try to stay with it.

It's likewise altogether conceivable that you don't click with the psychologist you meet, or you don't feel comfortable with them. This is very normal. Finding a psychologist that is perfect for you is somewhat similar to making another companion, it won't be with just anybody, but somebody you can trust and like. In the event that you have an inclination that you don't like the initial psychologist you meet, continue attempting news ones until you discover the one you like and you'll know when it occurs.
What Can I Expect From Seeing a Psychologist ?
Psychologists help you to help yourself. Think of the proverb, “Give a man a fish; you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish; you feed him for a lifetime.” Giving advice creates dependency, but helping you discover your patterns that keep you stuck or compromise your well-being creates self-awareness. The goal of psychotherapy is to empower you with ways on how to deal with life issues, learn the triggers for your depression, and build resiliency, so you can find well-being.
The Psychotherapy Process
Psychotherapy is a two-way process, and there must be a confiding in connection between the customer and the psychologist. To benefit from the procedure, an individual should initially need to take part. They should then go to arrangements as set, be straightforward when portraying symptoms, and be eager to finish any assignments set.

A few clients may go through changes they had not expected, or did not need. A few people don't want to remember unpleasant memories, yet this does not occur in all psychotherapy systems. No therapist can ever anticipate when a horrendous memory will reemerge, yet on the off chance that it does, the psychologist is gifted in tending to the reviewed memory.

However, the definition of "reasonable and appropriate" or "medically necessary" may vary.
Is Psychotherapy Covered by Medicare?
You can have your session covered under Medicare or pay a small gap fee for some psychologists that are covered under a Medicare rebate. To be entitled to a Medicare rebate you must get a mental health care plan from your doctor. This means your doctor will make an assessment of you through a questionnaire and knowledge of you, whether you would benefit from a mental health support or not.

A mental health care plan provides you with up to 10 sessions of psychotherapy per year with a Medicare rebate. 

Medicare does not provide rebates for all psychologists. You need to ask the individual psychologist. You may be eligible for a partial rebate on your private health insurance, depending on your policy.
Is therapy right for me?
People from all walk of life choose to use therapy, and for lots of different reasons. Some people need help with depression, others with anxiety, and others with deep psychological problems.

For others it can be sudden unforeseen circumstances that they are struggling to deal with such as death, loss of employment or divorce. Sometimes it is not for traumatic reasons at all. Some look for advice as they seek to discover themselves and as they make life choices.

If you feel you need support in any of these areas, therapy can certainly fast-track your recovery and help you to achieve results quicker and easier.
