The Role of a Psychotherapist in Treating Mental
Health Issues
  • Discussing Problems to Find Solutions
  • The major role of a psychotherapist is to engage
    you in a conversation about your mental health
    issues and the problems related to depression and
    stress that conjure up in your mind from time to
    time. The reason behind having a meaningful
    conversation about emotions and feelings of a
  • The therapist could ask you to write down the
    number times you lost your temper, including
    listing the reason behind the outburst. Moreover,
    the psychotherapist can ask you about the time
    when you felt low.
  • Benefits of Seeking Help from a Psychotherapist
  • Its important to keep in mind that talking about
    your feelings, emotions and other issues is a
    very crucial part of your treatment. It will help
    you to look at things with a new perspective and
    take a look at people, events and occurrences
    from a different angle.
  • How to Get the Most Out From your Sessions with
  • The best way to get the most out of your therapy
    is to enlist the things that deeply sadden,
    depresses, and angers you. Then you can make a
    list of experiences or events that bring joy and
    happy memories. You can make a list of all the
    people who have played an important part in your
    life. During sessions, you must talk about the
    thoughts that urge you to hurt yourself.

How Does Psychotherapy Help in Better Mental
  • A Viable Solution for Curing Mental Issues
  • Psychotherapy is known as talk therapy and the
    process is straightforward and simple. As a
    patient, you need to talk to your therapist about
    the different problems you faced today. After
    listening to your day carefully the therapist
    provides adequate solutions to your problems
    through psychotherapy.
  • Communication between the Therapist and the
    Patient Must be Excellent
  • Excellent communication is necessary between a
    therapist and the patient for a psychotherapy
    session to be fruitful. Today, the average time
    for a session is anything from 45 minutes to an
    hour, in some cases, the time exceeds
  • The Natural of a Relationship between
    Psychotherapist and the Patient
  • A client and the psychotherapist must maintain a
    professional relationship at all times. The
    reason behind maintaining a strictly professional
    relationship is that this way the therapist can
    be truly impartial when it comes to the treatment
    and wellbeing of the client.

Holistic Health For a Healthy Mind, Spirit and
  • The Holistic Approach Includes Spiritual Elements
    of a Person
  • One of the main aspects of holistic health
    concept is to identify the spiritual element of
    an individuals personality. Holistic experts
    believe that illness and pain affect the spirit
    that can lead to emotional symptoms along with
    physical pain.
  • The goal of a holistic approach to treatment is
    to aim at the spiritual healing as well. Most
    doctors focus on clearing the physical ailments
    while the spiritual aspect is not even
    considered. In holistic treatment, emotional and
    mental wellbeing is mandatory.
  • The Perfect Alternative Medicine
  • Holistic medicine is not just a traditional
    alternative treatment like acupuncture and
    homoeopathy, what makes it different is that many
    holistic practitioners use modern western
    medicine along with holistic treatment methods.
    The difference is that a holistic healthcare
    expert will try to locate the cause of the
    illness and focus on other elements apart from
    the physical condition of the patient.
  • Be in Control of Your Health
  • According to holistic belief, people have the
    ability to control their own well-being.
    Moreover, we have the ultimate ability to cure
    ourselves and make our mind and body better. We
    have the right to choose how we want our health
    to be. We can choose to eat healthily and avoid
    fast food. However, its our choice to eat fatty
    or unhealthy food, then we have to bear the
    consequences of such a lifestyle. So, its up to
    us to choose a suitable lifestyle that brings you
    closer to your surroundings and environment by
    being in control of our health and wellbeing.

Agoraphobia Look for the Best Treatment Plan
  • Diagnosis and Treatment
  • If you believe you are an agoraphobic, then there
    are some signs and symptoms that you need to look
    out for. Generally, a person with agoraphobia
    becomes anxious which triggers fear based panic
    attacks. If you feel trapped, lonely,
    embarrassed, and helplessly unable to breath are
    some of the early symptoms of agoraphobia.
    Moreover, you will have a tough time in crowded
    places as the constant overwhelming fear turns
    into a panic attack.
  • Self Help Methods to Deal with Agoraphobia
  • Focus on Something Visible and Non-Threatening
  • To fight your fears in a crowded place, try to
    focus on a specific non-threatening object such
    as the items in a store. Keep yourself busy by
    trying to look for a specific scent or by trying
    perfume samples. Keeping busy will help you fight
    the fears and prevent a panic attack.
  • Be Calm and Breathe Deeply and Slowly
  • Breathing is the best way to help you deal with a
    situation that puts you in anxiety and panic.
    Rapid breathing will make you anxious hence try
    to take deep breaths slowly to help relax your
    mind. Start a countdown with each breath to be
  • Dont Fight an Imminent Panic Attack
  • If you are close to panic attack then fighting it
    will make things worse. Instead, what you can do
    is reassure yourself that it will pass soon,
    theres nothing to be embarrassed about, the
    panic attack is not dangerous and you are
    completely safe despite the attack. Keep telling
    yourself how strong and brave you are for
    handling this on your own.

Holistic Medicine The Key to Healthy Mind, Body
and Soul
  • One of the core principles of holistic medication
    and healthcare is the strong belief of
    unconditional love and support is the most
    powerful healing source. Moreover, the concept
    states that each person is responsible for his or
    her individual wellbeing. Some other principles
    of holistic medicine are
  • Looking for a cause of the illness
  • Not focused on fixing or healing the symptoms but
    find a complete solution
  • Relies on using different traditional and
    non-traditional medical approaches
  • People have strong distinctive healing powers
  • Healing is team approach that includes the
    patient, the doctor and the different problems of
    your life
  • Holistic treatment methods use different types of
    treatment methods to assist patients to be more
    responsible towards their health and wellbeing. A
    holistic medicine practitioner includes patient
    education, lifestyle changes and self-care to
    help promote better health and wellness among the
    masses. The education can include a healthy diet,
    psychotherapy, spiritual counselling and
    relationship counselling.

Healthy Living with Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Eat a High-Fibre Diet
  • Fibre is an excellent option for people suffering
    from irritable bowel syndrome, eating fibre rich
    foods can help reduce the painful cramps and
    bloating. Eating fruits, vegetables, whole grains
    and lots of greens will help prevent
    constipation. Using soluble fibre from vegetables
    and fruits is a good option to avoid bloating.
    The fibre found in whole grains can cause
    excessive bloating in some people.
  • Rely on a Gluten Free Diet
  • Gluten is a type of protein usually found in
    whole grain items like wheat. If you are
    suffering from irritable bowel syndrome then the
    best option for you is to try a gluten-free diet.
    Avoid eating bread, pasta and other products that
    include grains. If you have IBS, its better to
    quit eating rye, barley, wheat, pasta, and bread
    to help you reduce your symptoms. The good news
    is there are gluten-free products available in
    different health food stores across Canada.
  • Avoid Eating Fatty Fast Food
  • Fast food is unhealthy but it is particularly
    unsafe for consumption by someone who has
    irritable bowel syndrome. Most fast food is
    deep-fried, which means it has less nutritional
    value and more fats. They have the tendency to
    cause excessive bloating. Hence, we recommend
    that you avoid all types of deep-fried fast food.
