There are lots of different kinds of talking therapies. Some talking therapies would fall under an umbrella term that’s called psychodynamic psychotherapies, which typically people might think of Freud as an example of that. Those kinds of therapies tend to be focussed more on the relationship we have with ourselves and with other people based on our earliest relationships with our caregivers. Other therapies include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, which is a very structured and focussed therapy that looks at the relationship between our thoughts, feelings, and behaviours, and very much focuses on problems of experience currently. So it doesn’t really look at the past so much, although it might make links to this. Then there are also other kinds of talking therapies, like counselling. Counselling is a kind of an open supportive space that you might go to in order to talk about things that might have slightly different models attached to it, therapeutic models attached to it. But those are the three kind of main types of talking therapies.
