What Are 5 Types of Therapy?

Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic therapy evolved from psychoanalytic theory. The primary idea of this intervention is to explore processes that occur outside the threshold of our awareness (ie unconscious processes).  

It seeks to understand hidden patterns affecting current behaviour.  

Therapists help clients recognise patterns by exploring past experiences. This understanding often leads to profound personal growth. 

Sessions involve open conversations between the Therapist and the client. Through these dialogues, clients gain insights into their unconscious thoughts and develop healthier coping mechanisms over time. 

Psychodynamic therapy can: 

  • Improve self-awareness  
  • Help clients better understand the dynamics of their relationships 
  • Reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety 
  • Help manage personality disorders 

TA focuses on the patterns of communication and interaction. These patterns are known as ‘transactions.  

For example, one individual initiates the conversation with a 'transaction stimulus', prompting the other person to offer a 'transaction response'.  

TA equips us to break down these exchanges. It helps explore our emotions, thoughts, and actions during such interactions. 

Central to TA are three "ego states", which make up our personalities.  

  • Parent Ego State: This ego state is rooted in our past. It includes values and lessons learnt from parents. It often manifests as nurturing or critical voices in our interactions. 
  • Adult Ego State: This is our personality's rational, logical voice. It evaluates information in the present and makes decisions without the emotional baggage of the past. 
  • Child Ego State: This ego echoes our childhood experiences. It can be spontaneous, playful, or even rebellious. It is where our raw emotions and early memories exist. 

These three ego states interact with each other. During a session, your Therapist will help you understand and acknowledge these states to heal your inner child and develop several interpersonal skills. 

Behavioural Therapy

Behavioural therapy looks to identify and replace negative behaviours with positive ones. ‘Negative’ actions could mean habits that cause harm or discomfort to oneself.   

One can modify their reactions by understanding the relationship between environment, behaviour, and consequences. 

Behavioural Therapists believe that all and any learned behaviour can be unlearned.  

Therapists in Singapore may use scientific tools, such as positive reinforcement, to guide the client. The client can be trained to reduce or overcome negative behaviours through unconditional positive regard.  

All the therapeutic tools from behavioural therapy are modified and adapted to the client’s unique needs.  

Behavioural therapy can address: 

The main goal of CBT Therapists is to observe and identify maladaptive patterns in clients' responses. Through guided exercises, the client may then learn to replace these patterns with desirable ones.  

Traumatic and painful experiences influence our automatic negative thoughts in childhood. Hence, we may end up strongly believing in these patterns without the right mental health support.  

Therapists in Singapore may adjust their approach to address unique presenting problems.  

People of various age groups and backgrounds may benefit from CBT. Common issues CBT can help with include depression, anxiety, intrusive thoughts, communication issues, trust issues, people-pleasing, and habit change.  

DBT was developed for borderline personality disorder.  

However, clinicians have now further expanded the scope of DBT to address a broad range of mental health issues.  

Cognitive-behavioural techniques and mindfulness are two elements of DBT. The client learns to accept and change their emotions without judging them.  

On the one hand, radical acceptance of reality can help people make peace with their lives. On the other hand, change techniques empower them to alter negative behaviours. 

DBT sessions are unique. This is because they combine individual therapy with group skills training. This approach provides comprehensive support.  

In individual sessions, Therapists in Singapore address personal challenges like uncontrollable anger, relationship with parents, cheating, trauma, codependent dynamics, and generational trauma.  

ACT helps clients recognise that all and any types of emotions are valid reactions to life's challenges. Through this approach, Therapists help people move past and regulate their feelings without affecting their actions.  

In ACT sessions, you will understand your self-dialogue, especially regarding life's hurdles, such as traumatic experiences, complex relationships, or personal limitations.  

This introspection helps in knowing whether a challenge requires immediate action or if it is something to be acknowledged as it is. 

In ACT, your Therapist will also work with you on the six foundational processes. These core processes help develop psychological flexibility.  

ACT tools help you break free from counterproductive thought cycles and behaviours and lead you towards a life driven by your values and aspirations. 

Emotion-focused Therapy (EFT) explores the emotional connections between couples or two loved ones. This approach aims to reignite the intimacy often lost amidst life's challenges.  

Rooted in the principles of attachment theory, EFT was developed around the idea that a secure partner connection is important for individual and relationship growth. Simply put, it focuses on the idea that love has the power to transform. 

EFT highlights the significance of emotions as the core factor of our experiences. It is about understanding and regulating those feelings to develop deeper connections. The expression of longing and the pain of isolation can be instrumental in re-establishing the lost bond between partners.  

Guided by a couples Therapist, couples discover the underlying need for closeness, which is often masked by anger or detachment. Learning to embrace and express this vulnerability improves interpersonal communication and sparks genuine tenderness and understanding. 

Cognitive Therapy

CT was developed by Aaron Beck. Beck identified that negative thoughts and beliefs often hindered his clients’ progress.  

He proposed that our thoughts, emotions, and actions are intricately linked. Identifying and rectifying distorted thinking can alter problematic behaviours and reduce emotional distress. 

Therapists and clients often work together to develop skills that identify and counteract unhelpful thoughts and beliefs. This technique leads to a shift in the fixed behaviours linked to them. The emphasis is predominantly on the present. CT adopts a pragmatic, solution-focused approach. 

Moreover, CT focuses on skill acquisition. Therapists help clients to learn and apply these techniques autonomously. This results in sustained benefits long after therapy ends. 

Humanistic Therapy

Humanistic therapy has a foundational belief that every person is capable of inherent goodness and change.  

During this intervention, Therapists in Singapore focus on the present moment and the problems one may be experiencing currently.  

The theory also suggests that every person already has all the resources they may need to overcome their difficulties. It is only professional guidance that they need to identify and retrieve these tools.  

Some of the common concepts of humanistic therapy include: 

  • Empathy 
  • Genuine’s 
  • Unconditional positive regard 

Person-centred therapy, or client-centred therapy, was developed by Carl Rogers.  

The concept of innate growth in this approach aligns with humanistic theory. 

During client-centred talk therapy, the client is the focus of conversations. The Therapists, in contrast, act as compassionate mentors.  

They offer empathy and unconditional positive regard. 

A key theory of this approach is the belief in the client's inner resources and capacity for self-direction.  

For instance, imagine someone grappling with career choices. Rather than offering direct advice, a person-centred Therapist might encourage clients to delve deep into their feelings and aspirations. 

Existential therapy probes into the heart of human existence. It focuses on our innate freedom to choose, our quest for purpose, and our inherent self-determination. 

Martin Heidegger and other theorists further developed existentialism. Existential therapy emphasises several essential truths: 

  • Self-awareness is within everyone's grasp. 
  • Our unique essence emerges through our bonds with others. 
  • We must adapt and evolve as life changes. 
  • Anxiety is part of our human experience. 
Postmodern Therapy

Postmodern Therapy is rooted in the idea that reality is not fixed. It is shaped by our personal and shared experiences. This therapy questions the idea of one true reality. Instead, it suggests that our view of the world is tied to our social surroundings and construction. 

In therapy, this means each person’s story is unique and valid, and many factors influence it. Postmodern Therapy helps people rewrite their stories.  

It challenges society’s narratives and lets people explore and grow. Therapists help their clients create new and positive stories. The key is to see the many truths and our role in shaping our reality. 

SFT prioritises exploring and creating solutions and achieving future goals.  

The core belief is that individuals inherently know how to improve their lives. With the right guidance and questions, they can identify and act on these solutions. 

Originating in the late 1970s, SFT was developed by Insoo Kim Berg, Steve de Shazer, and their team. They felt traditional psychoanalysis often missed the mark.  

Their aim was to shift from understanding the reasons behind challenges to actively addressing them.  

Narrative Therapy works on the idea that individuals craft their own life stories. Within this therapeutic approach, Therapists in Singapore place emphasis on the narratives individuals form and evolve with over time.  

Life events and interactions shape these stories. These narratives assign meaning and influence one's self-perception and worldview.  

It is common for individuals to juggle multiple narratives. These narratives include aspects like self-worth, capabilities, relationships, and professional life. 

Therapists create a non-judgemental and non-pathologising counselling space during narrative therapy.  

This allows individuals to take charge of their own narratives and reshape them positively.

Online Therapy vs In-Person Therapy

This section will help you weigh your choices and prepare you to practically analyse your requirements.  

At TYHO, we provide both therapy modalities.  

Our Therapists in Singapore, who provide online therapy, will conduct the sessions via your TYHO dashboard.  

Offline therapy sessions are also conducted by Therapists in Singapore. Therapist’s office, TYHO Room, and other local locations in Singapore are available. You can find the location tags of your preferred Therapist on their profiles. 

Benefits of online therapy in Singapore

Online therapy in Singapore can help you acquire the components required for good mental and emotional health.  

Your preferred Therapist in Singapore will help you cope with daily life issues and improve your interpersonal relationships and self-awareness through guided meditation. 

As we know, offline therapy is the conventional modality. However, recent research suggests that online therapy can be just as effective.  

With online therapy in Singapore, you can: 

  • Access your therapeutic plan, the experts’ clinical impressions, therapy homework, and scheduled sessions all in your account dashboard  
  • Avoid additional expenses and join the session without paying rental fees for a room or coworking space 
  • Suppose you are in a long-distance relationship and want to book a couples counselling session. In that case, you and your partner can join the meeting room from different devices and locations! 
  • TYHO Therapists in Singapore are flexible and can cater to your communication needs. Hence, if you prefer to turn off your video during a session, you have the option to do so.  

To choose the right medium for your needs, you may need to assess these three factors: 

  • Communication preferences 
  • Convenience 
  • Cost 


On the one hand, in-person therapy gives you the advantage of sharing physical space with your Therapist in Singapore.  

Sharing physical space could give your Therapist a complete picture of your interaction patterns. The expert may also gain insight into your issues by clinically observing your non-verbal cues.  

On the other hand, you can attend online therapy from a place that feels safe to you. 

Feeling safe is a priority for many as they find it easier to open up and be vulnerable.  

Hence, decide what is more important in your life right now. Is it a sense of safety and familiarity or the need to immerse yourself in real-time interactions? 


How does your lifestyle look? Are you busy every day, or can you spare a few hours outside of work?  

If you are busy, online therapy can be beneficial. You can potentially save travel and waiting time and schedule sessions in advance to avoid any last-minute decisions.  

However, if you can spend a minimum of 2 hours per week and enjoy travel, you can opt for in-person sessions. 


You can save money if you prefer online therapy. The expenses you can cut out on include travel, parking, rental, and even childcare or pet care.  

However, consider how far or close you live from the given location. If you live nearby, you can still avoid the above expenses.  

We recommend that you opt for online therapy if you live quite far away from the given address. 

Online Therapy vs In-Person Therapy

When considering therapy, choosing between online and in-person sessions can be confusing. At TYHO, we understand and value both preferences.

Our online therapy is conducted via the TYHO Dashboard, providing a secure and interactive video-conferencing experience with your Therapist.

Our Therapists are available for face-to-face sessions at their office for those who prefer in-person therapy. You can find the location tags of your preferred Therapist on their profiles.

Whether you opt for online or in-person, it is important to know that both modes have their own strengths – this also makes it easy to find the right Therapist. 

In this section, we highlight the benefits of online therapy and how to choose a therapy mode.

Engaging in talk therapy or counselling can be transformative for your mental and emotional well-being, personal development, and in imporving your relationships.

It addresses immediate concerns, increases self-awareness, and improves interpersonal relationships.

While in-person therapy sessions have been the conventional approach for many years, the rise of online therapy provides a significant alternative for many individuals. Do note that both online and in-person therapy works effectively.

Here are some of its advantages:

1. You can access online therapeutic services regardless of your commitments, caregiving responsibilities, or mobility constraints.

2. You can save more money with online therapy, because you can avoid travel costs and other finances. It is often a more affordable alternative.

3. You can allocate your time more effectively with online therapy, as the need for travel is eliminated. This allows you to concentrate solely on the therapeutic process.

4. You can engage in therapy from a personal space, which may provide a sense of security. This may also improve the overall effectiveness of the session.

 5. You can choose your mode of communication in online therapy. For those who feel comfortable with their camera off, you can have a conversation with your Therapist about it and request the same.

Your choice between in-person and online therapy depends on your communication preference, convenience, and budget. Try to evaluate your needs based on these three factors, and make the choice that feels right for you!


In-person therapy offers the advantage of face-to-face interaction in your Singaporean Therapist's office. It helps to have a conversation through understanding body language, facial expressions, and other non-verbal cues.

On the other hand, if you prefer to have the sessions in a safe and familiar environment (eg your room), online therapy might work better for you.


For those with a busy lifestyle, online therapy is a significant advantage. You can save time by avoiding commutes and waiting rooms. When it is time for your online session, you can log in from your space, whether it is your living room or a quiet corner in a café.

It is especially beneficial for those without easy access to transportation or living in remote areas.

However, in-person therapy might work for you if you are willing to travel and do not mind having your session in your Therapist's office.


Online therapy often emerges as a more affordable option for many. You can avoid costs like commuting, parking, and even childcare, caregiving, or pet care. All you need is a stable internet connection.

However, if you are comfortable covering these costs and appreciate the traditional setting, in-person therapy might be the right choice for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is online therapy effective?

Yes, online therapy is effective.  

A 2022 study proved that online psychotherapeutic approaches were effective in reducing symptoms of depression, OCD, interpersonal sensitivity, and anxiety.  

Moreover, research suggests that video conferencing therapy can further increase the benefits of online consultation.  

In fact, clinicians strongly recommend using online therapy as a preventive tool and support service.  

Is therapy good for you?

Therapy can be good for you in several ways.  

People usually misinterpret therapy as a serious and sombre activity.  

The truth is—therapy can actually be fun and interesting! The more we learn ourselves, the better we can shape our lives.  

For more specific reasons, therapy: 

  • Improves your confidence, self-esteem, image, and self-awareness 
  • Helps you reclaim control of your emotions and thoughts 
  • Improves your interpersonal relationships 
  • Trains you to process your feelings in a healthy way 
  • Provides non-judgemental and unconditional support and guidance 
  • Helps you cope with and manage mental health issues like ADHD and anxiety 
How do I know I need therapy?

You may need therapy if you: 

  • Feel anxious or worried every day 
  • Wake up feeling a tight knot in your chest 
  • Isolate yourself from your friends, even if you long for their company 
  • Consume alcohol or drugs whenever you feel upset and angry 
  • Experience uncomfortable recollections of negative childhood events 
  • Struggle to label, understand, or process your emotions 
What kind of therapist is right for me?

Spend time to choose a Therapist in Singapore. The bond you create with your Therapist may directly result in positive therapy outcomes.  

Firstly, review the profiles of the TYHO Therapists to assess who is more likely to understand your cultural and environmental upbringing.  

For example, Asian Therapists are sensitive to cultural influences while addressing mental health issues. The therapeutic alliance could be stronger if the Therapist can relate to the client’s background.  

This understanding can prevent unintentional microaggression and gaslighting during sessions.  

Secondly, give more priority to your personal preferences. Do you prefer a Therapist of a certain age, religion, or background? Are you more comfortable with female professionals? Maybe you are looking for someone who focuses on a specific issue.  

Lastly, give yourself and therapy enough time to judge if it’s truly working for you. If not, please feel free to look for a different Therapist in Singapore. 

Which type of therapy is best for me?

TYHO Therapists in Singapore use different approaches to address different issues.  

Some of the most common ones include: 

  • CBT 
  • SFBT 
  • Narrative therapy 
  • Person-centred therapy 

CBT uses cognitive and behavioural therapy elements to provide practical and constructive tools. Issues like anxiety, depression, mood disorders, and OCD can be managed through CBT.  

SFBT guides clients to focus on the present and create a realistic plan to achieve future goals. SFBT is used for interpersonal conflicts and work-related stress 

Narrative therapy focuses on changing the stories (ie narratives) people tell themselves. This intervention can reduce or manage symptoms of depression, eating disorders, and generalised anxiety disorder 

Person-centred therapy encourages clients to control the pace and depth of therapy. This intervention can address post-trauma stress, grief, sexual issues, and apathy.   

Please note that the clinical interventions used by Therapists in Singapore are quite diverse and personalised for every client.  

Moreover, Therapists may use an eclectic approach (ie multiple therapies) to address your unique presenting problems.  

Is online counselling secure and confidential?

Yes, online counselling at TYHO is secure and confidential.  

Your private information will not be shared without your explicit consent.  

In some cases where the client self-harms or shows signs of suicidal tendencies, the Therapist will inform the client’s emergency contact.  

Therapy in Singapore: How long does it take?

All therapy sessions at TYHO take 60 minutes.  

What is the difference between Care and Empathy Therapists?

We currently have two categories of TYHO Therapists – Care and Empathy – who charge a slightly different fee. The categorisation considers various factors including:

  • Their specialisations (ie whether they have to undertake and continue working towards specialist certifications such as EMDR, Gottman etc which require additional costs and supervision);
  • The predominant composition / demographics of their clientele (ie whether they mainly work with working professionals, or full-time caregivers / or youth – the latter requiring more affordable support);
  • Their availability on the platform (ie the number of slots they have made available and the percentage of slots booked).

Regardless of category, all TYHO Therapists were selected via the same stringent process, and are able to recognise and help with mental health issues listed on their profiles, including mild to moderate forms of depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or work-related stress.

Ultimately, the fit between client and their Therapist is most important for effective therapeutic outcomes, and selection of the right Therapist is key (regardless of their Therapist category).
