Psychotherapy, what it is and how to get it

If you are in urgent need, please see these threads with contact info for
For an excellent EF thread, with loads of empathy, kindness, encouragement and good advice, please see this thread which, at the time Olygirl rightly hoped would become a "go to" thread. https://www.englishforum.ch/family-m...epression.html
Although that thread is primarily about depression, it can stand, by analogy, for any kind of stress or psychological/mental illness. About this, see also Suzie-Q's post: https://www.englishforum.ch/3119005-post20.html

This thread sets out my understanding of what psychotherapy is - or can be.
I describe the qualifications of
  • a medical doctor, and that some go on to specialise as psychiatrists.
  • a psychologist
and set out that some (but by no means all) of each of those go on to train to become psychotherapists and to provide psychotherapy, of which there are many different schools.

I write about the role of the GP (general practitioner, in German Hausarzt) and how to find psychotherapy.

I hope that other posters will be along to expand (or correct, please, if need be) what I've written here, whether as professionals in these fields, or as patients or relatives.
