Talk therapy is a psychotherapeutic intervention provided by a trained professional, such as a psychologist, counsellor, or psychiatrist, and involves sitting down and conveying your emotions in an open-minded and supportive environment. The benefit of this support is that it helps us recognize specific triggers and may enable us to adapt our way of thinking to a more positive approach. Even individuals with good family support systems readily utilize such services because they feel that the relative emotional detachment of the therapist helps them to be honest about all of their underlying feelings.
