  Keep getting asked ques on this or see them as options so thought I would list them in one spot. If you guys know more types or have more info to add on whats here like examples of each, please do. Would greatly appreciate it!

1. Psychodynamic Therapy: Similar to Freudian where therapy focuses on the unconscious thoughts that motivate people's behavior.

ex: memories from the age 3 that underly how we feel towards people now.

2. Cognitive Behavioral therapy: Therapy focuses on changing the thinking that causes the negative emotions and then reinforces the positive thinking to change the behavior.

3. Interpersonal psychotherapy: doesn't focus on unconscious feelings but on relationships, fights, roles and grief

4. Psychoanalysis: psychiatrist is neutral and asks clarifications and lets patient interpret their own conflicts or dreams

5. Behavioral therapy: changing conditioned reactions through relaxation techniques

  Also guys if you have to bet, choose CBT cognitive behavior therapy, as it's used in the treatment of anxiety, mood , adjustment, eating and somatic symptom disorder. All of which patient has persistent maladaptive thoughts and avoidance behavior.

  I can say that the psychological level remains important from my point of view. It's just nowhere without it. Therefore, look and meet one another. I am happy that my only knowledge of this case was excellent and even a professional was consulted. You can read Calmerry platform bot history, I hope I and others can help. I hope now that many will seek an expert. Blessedness
