The primary type of therapy that I, a Hoboken psychotherapist, use is CBT. It is probably the most well known therapy out there nowadays. But if you do not have a psychology background and have never been to a therapist then you most likely have no idea what CBT is.
If you have ever experienced a mental health condition, have you ever felt like your loved ones were trying to give you advice on how to feel better? If it were that easy to just feel better by snapping your fingers then you probably would have done that by now. The best advise someone else could give you is to seek out a professional therapist if they notice that something is off and you are exhibiting symptoms of a mental health condition.
