According to the College of Registered Psychotherapist of Ontario (CRPO), psychotherapy is "primarily a talk-based therapy and is intended to help people improve and maintain their mental health and well-being. "
Psychotherapy involves a therapeutic relationship between the clinician and client, where the two work together to address different challenges in the client's life in an effort to improve their quality of living. It is a collaborative process that may involve homework, building skills for the client to learn and apply in different areas of living such as every day social life, relationships and in the workplace.
Some workplace insurance benefits cover the cost of psychotherapy treatment. Please speak with your employer to verify.
