At mid-life, many people re-examine the way they have been coping with stress and decide to make some changes. If so, psychotherapy can provide an effective means of bringing greater satisfaction to one’s life. One very popular type of psychotherapy is “psychodynamic therapy,” which begins with awareness of past experiences and feelings that might unconsciously influence current emotional well-being and functioning. By gaining insight into their motivation and conflicts, it may be possible to develop more productive ways to cope with them.
Another popular form of therapy, “behavioral therapy,” concentrates less on the past and the unconscious and, instead, focuses on ways to change harmful thinking and behavior patterns. The best therapy is the one that works for you.
