Psychotherapy refers to any session in which a trained professional interacts with one or more patients in order to help them through any psychological issues. The ultimate goal is to help the patients feel better about themselves, and be better able to function in society. Therapy can vary greatly in its focus. Marriage counseling, for instance, concentrates on healing rifts and problems that can arise between married couples. There are also types of counseling devoted to age groups, such as children and adolescents.
Becoming parents can turn your world inside out if you do not learn how to parent your child effectively and your child will be running your household and holding you hostage. Each child needs to be number one when he or she expresses their need for parenting and each cry must be tended to with as short a delay as possible, to create a trusting bond between babies and caregiver. Each child needs three years of devoted parenting to make sure their baby forms a healthy and secure attachment with mother/father.
Many parents have told me that they wanted to get the baby stage over with so they can get back to work and stop changing diapers. I beg my couples to finish their educations before having children so they will not get stressed and pushed to their limits. I encourage my parents to be honest with themselves and when they are on the verge of having an emotional break- down, they simply cannot bring another child into their lives, and must get in touch with their emotional limitations. Not everyone is meant to have two and three children. Not everyone can financially afford two children. Mothers who are worried about their biological clock are better off freezing their eggs than marrying the wrong person too quickly.
I also discourage couples from having babies back to back; and these babies are referred to as “Irish Twins” because they are conceived before their first child is one year old. “Irish twins” are much harder to raise than twins who are at least on the same schedule. Couples want to be over with the baby stage at an early age and fear their bio clock is ticking or simply do not enjoy the many stages that a baby goes through the first three years of life.
In other cases, the therapist attempts to treat specific problems with which the patient is dealing. Treatment for anxiety is a common example of this. Specific concerns can also be addressed over the course of the treatment.
