A Bit About Therapy

There are a multitude of different therapeutic approaches used in my field. Some are versatile and can be used with similar cases and issues (CBT/SFT), others are specific and work well only in certain domains (ERP/EMDR). 

The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health describes therapy as work done to "relieve distress by discussing and expressing feelings; to help change attitudes, behavior and habits that may be unhelpful; and to promote more constructive and adaptive ways of coping".

This is an accurate, yet general description of how therapy can assist a person, but it detracts from the heart of therapy which is to listen, empathize, and hold space with another in pain.
