Coming to a psychotherapist is similar to coming to a doctor, a health counsellor or a personal trainer. The difference is that a psychotherapist will treat your mental health and emotions.


At the time being, psychotherapy is not just for serious problems such as depression, behavioural disorder, emotional disorder, multiple personality disorder, delusion, stress, etc. It is also applied for personal development, e.g. career of a person with glossophobia will be hindered if it’s related too public-speaking; game addiction; smoking addiction; desire to lose weight; indifference, losing interest in life; lack of concentration ability or just wish to live happier day by day, etc. These problems seem to be not too serious but the root causes may come from unsolved psychological matters. They can cause obstacles and negatively affect personal development in work, the connection with surrounding relationships, and mental and life quality.


In the first meeting, psychiatrist or psychotherapist will listen to and share with you in order to understand you and the problems you are encountering. They will learn what makes you come to psychotherapy. They also want to know about your personality, family circumstances, childhood and any psychological or emotional events that affect you if any. A psychiatrist or psychotherapist has the ability to listen and share to help you feel comfortable and open to your problems. They have no judgment, or impose their point of view on you. They will listen sympathetically and objectively in order to find a positive solution to your mental health.
