Psychotherapy is the interaction between a trained individual and an individual or couple seeking solution to a problem. A psychotherapist will help the client to understand patterns of thought, emotion, and behavior, as well as roles one may take. This way the client will be able to construct alternative solutions to the problem.

There are many approaches to psychotherapy and every each of them involves different techniques. An Integrative Psychotherapist is the individual who has been trained to use three or more approaches under a specific model of integration.
