Online Psychotherapy in Australia: Introduction

1) What is psychotherapy?

At TYHO, we provide a specialised service of psychotherapy to help clients like you manage your emotions, improve your interpersonal communication, fix your relationships, resolve workplace conflicts, and cope with symptoms associated with mental health problems like stress and anxiety.  

Psychotherapy is also known as ‘Talk Therapy’, and it involves interactive sessions with a qualified Australian psychotherapist.  

The discussions you have during therapy will be open-ended and structured. In other words, you are free to express whatever is going on in your mind, and your psychotherapist will make sure to listen to you actively.  

Seeking online therapy in Australia is very different from that seeking advice or encouragement from friends or family. 

For example, consider a situation where you are currently finding it difficult to balance your personal life and demanding work schedules. While your loved ones may provide moral support (which is also absolutely necessary), they might lack practical solutions for such problems.  

In some cases, although your family may have practical advice, it may not directly align with your values and personality – which may further cause mental distress.  

In contrast, TYHO psychotherapists use methods like cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to teach you skills like: 

  • Time management 
  • Setting realistic goals 
  • Managing daily tasks  
  • Overcoming procrastination  
  • Increasing your self-control 
  • Identifying negative thinking 
  • Problem-solving 

2) Who benefits from psychotherapy?

Note: TYHO Therapists offer psychotherapy in Melbourne, Perth, Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane, and more cities in Australia.  

Our team of online psychotherapists in Perth also help people from different cultural and societal backgrounds.  

We urge you to visit their full profiles to understand and research each psychotherapist in detail.  

Here, you can look for a section called ‘Issues Therapist Can Help With’ and ‘Therapeutic Approaches’. Review what a psychotherapist can help you with, and book a session accordingly! 

A common misconception is that therapy is only for those with severe problems.  

People often hesitate to get counselling in Australia, thinking their concerns might not be as ‘serious’ as someone else’s situation.  

However, therapy is beneficial for all, regardless of the type of severity of your problem. 

Feeling worried or nervous about starting therapy is normal, but overcoming these hesitations can significantly improve your therapy experience with us.  

Online psychotherapy at TYHO is a resource for anyone feeling stuck or discontented at any phase of their life.  

Our clients at TYHO commonly approach us for help with a variety of issues, including:  

  • Challenges with self-esteem 
  • Difficulties in relationships 
  • Experiencing low or frantic moods, such as depression or mood swings 
  • Anxiety 
  • Stress, whether personal or professional 
  • Managing anger

How Can Psychotherapy Help You?

What issues can psychotherapy help with?

Psychotherapeutic intervention is an effective way to manage and cope with several mental health challenges.  

Below are issues TYHO psychotherapists can help you with: 

  • Affective disorders, including chronic depression and bipolar disorder. Symptoms of mood disorders could include significant changes in mood and energy levels.  
  • Anxiety disorders include conditions like GAD, fear or panic attacks, and social anxiety. Techniques like cognitive therapies and emotion-focused therapies are effective in changing or eliminating anxious thought processes.  
  • OCD and PTSD can also be managed with psychotherapeutic interventions. Your psychotherapist may help you control obsessive behaviours and trauma-related responses. 
  • Personality disorders, such as BPD and NPD can be addressed using therapeutic methods like interpersonal appraoches. Therapists may use DBT to improve your emotional regulation (ie how you respond to triggers and situations) and interpersonal relationships (ie, how your responses affect your relationships with loved ones). 
  • Eating disorders, including conditions like anorexia nervosa, are also treatable through psychotherapy in Australia. You can unlearn how to get rid of distorted body perceptions and harmful eating patterns. 

Additionally, online psychotherapy could also help you explore the root causes and triggers of your unhelpful behaviours.  

For example, you may have developed GAD due to traumatic childhood experiences like bullying. Your psychologist in Australia would then help you identify your needs and heal your ‘inner child’.

How should I prepare for therapy?

Your first step is to narrow down your choice to an online psychotherapist in Australia. Once you shortlist, you can directly book a therapy session through their full profiles.   

Before your first session, complete your Intake Form and a few sections from your Therapeutic Plan.    

The information you enter in these documents will be noted by your counsellor to help create a plan that is personalised for your needs.    

During this process, you may have to enter information about:   

  • Your anticipations and expectations of the therapy sessions   
  • Objectives for long-term psychological support   
  • Current challenges you are facing   

Moreover, you can also come up with a list of questions to ask your online psychotherapist in Sydney.    

You can include topics such as the length of the therapy, their specific methods of treatment, and the professional’s proficiency in dealing with problems similar to what you are experiencing.   

At TYHO, we also provide additional information to improve your therapy experience with us. We recommend reviewing our Therapists’ approaches and backgrounds to fully prepare for your initial appointment.   

Further, try organising all the topics you wish to discuss during your first sessions. You may work collaboratively with the expert to sort out and prioritise what problems to focus on first.    

If you have already experienced therapy previously, try to reflect on all the aspects that worked for you and those that did not.    

Lastly, try to have an open mind and attitude during therapy. 

What are some questions to ask a psychotherapist?

The success of your therapy hugely depends on the relationship you build with your Australian counsellor. 

It might take a while to feel at ease or to find a Therapist who truly understands your issues and personal needs. 

Therefore, we suggest you remain patient and try sessions with several Therapists. Some people might click with their first psychotherapist, while others may need more time to find the right match. 

Voice all and any uncertainties you have, or ask any specific questions you have in mind during the first few sessions. Be assured that your TYHO Therapist will respond with transparency.  

Remember, there are no inappropriate questions – the therapeutic environment at TYHO is entirely supportive and free of judgment!   

Questions to consider asking your Therapist are:  

  • Can you tell me about your academic and training background? 
  • What particular issues are you skilled to handle? 
  • Which therapeutic techniques do you specialise in? 
  • Have you had experience with clients facing challenges similar to mine? 
  • What is your approach to goal setting with clients? 
  • How will I be able to tell if I am progressing in therapy? 
  • What is the expected timeline for noticing positive changes in my life? 
  • Can I be assured of the confidentiality of our sessions? 
  • What are your views on the use of medication in treatment?

What is the difference between a psychotherapist and a psychologist?

When considering therapy through TYHO, you don’t specifically have to differentiate between these professionals.  

All professionals on our platform have similar qualifications and can address several issues.  

Issues both types of experts can help with include: 

  • Anxiety 
  • Grief 
  • Stress or PTSD 
  • Depression 
  • Low self-esteem 
  • Family issues 
  • Relationship conflicts 

On the one hand, psychotherapists in Sydney provide talk therapy and can help with unresolve childhood trauma.  

On the other hand, Australian psychologists can help with chronic mental health issues that may be affecting your current lifestyle.   

Is a psychotherapist better than a Counsellor?

All mental health professionals at TYHO are equally good at handling the issues in which they specialise.  

Hence, there is no such thing as one type of professional being better than the other.  

We suggest that you visit all professionals’ profiles to read what issues they can help with and review their clinical expertise.  

For example, if you need couples counselling, you can look for a psychotherapist who has expertise in relationship issues or cheating or infidelity. 

Use the filter on our website to find the right mental health professional! 

Can psychotherapists diagnose in Australia?

Only psychologists and psychiatrists (ie medical doctors) can diagnose mental health disorders.  

However, at TYHO, psychotherapy is an umbrella term for a number of different mental health experts, including psychotherapists and psychologists.  

Hence, whether or not a psychotherapist can diagnose depends on the specific credentials in their full profiles.  

If you need help selecting a Therapist who can diagnose, please reach out to us via WhatsApp (click the icon in the bottom right) or email us at [email protected].
