When should I see a behavioral therapist?

Since a behavioral therapist can help with mental health issues or disorders, you should see one if you suspect you may have one. You can also see one if you have a related condition or even if you simply need to share something personal with a professional. Behavioral therapists commonly help people with:

  • Anxiety
  • Panic disorders
  • Depression
  • Anger issues
  • Eating disorders
  • ADHD
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Phobias
  • Issues with self-harm
  • Issues with substance abuse
  • OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder)
  • PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder)

Adults and children alike can benefit from behavioral therapy, also known as behavioral counselling. There are different types of behavioral therapy, but they share the same goal.

What is behavioral counseling?

Behavioral counselling, or behavioral therapy, is an umbrella term for different types of therapy used to treat mental health issues and disorders. These therapies have the same goal of identifying and changing unproductive, unhealthy, and possibly self-destructive behaviors. Here’s a bit of a breakdown of each type of behavioral therapy.

Cognitive behavioral therapy is very popular because it has been shown to work very well for very many patients. It combines behavioral therapy with cognitive therapy. The treatment is centered around how a patient’s thoughts and beliefs affect their moods and actions. With cognitive behavioral play therapy for children, a therapist watches a child play, and in doing so, gains insight into the child’s mental health. The other types of behavioral therapy are system desensitization to treat phobias, and aversion therapy to treat substance abuse and alcoholism.

Behavioral therapy works and is actually considered to be extremely effective, so there’s a very, very good chance that you will benefit just as many other patients have.

How do you find a good behavioral therapist?

When looking for a good behavioral therapist, you could look at social workers, faith-based counsellors, non-faith-based counselors, psychiatrists, and/or psychologists. However, it’s important to make sure the provider has the necessary certifications and degrees. Also, some providers will specialize in treating certain conditions, like anxiety, so you should make sure the provider can help you. You can always ask your doctor for a recommendation for a provider, or you can come to MedSave Clinic to meet and speak with our behavioral therapist who is capable of providing the behavioral therapy you require.

Do you need a referral to see a behavioral therapist?

This may depend on which type of provider you see. For example, a psychiatrist requires a referral, but other providers usually don’t. Here at MedSave Clinic, you don’t need a referral to see our behavioral therapist. In fact, it’s very easy to see our therapist; all you need to do is book a simple appointment with us here at MedSave Clinic in Columbus, OH.
