Research shows that combining TMS Therapy with psychotherapy and treatment approaches like CBT, or cognitive behavioral therapy, results in improved and more sustainable outcomes.
What is Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy, or talk therapy, is a way to help people with a broad variety of mental health issues, including:
Major Depressive Disorder
Psychotherapy helps increase well-being and improves symptoms by addressing the source of maladaptive behaviors and thoughts with a trained psychotherapist.
There are several different types of psychotherapy, including individual psychotherapy (one-on-one), family therapy and group therapy, and some types may work better with certain problems or issues. Some patients attend individual or group therapy sessions as needed, while others may participate in a more intensive program that is three to six hours per day.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
The most common form of psychotherapy used in combination with TMS Therapy is CBT, or cognitive behavioral therapy. CBT helps people identify and change thinking and behavior patterns that are harmful or ineffective, replacing them with more accurate thoughts and functional behaviors. It can help a person focus on current problems and how to solve them. It often involves practicing new skills in the “real world.”
CBT has been proven effective in treating a variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, trauma related disorders, and OCD. For example, CBT can help a person with depression recognize and change negative thought patterns or behaviors that are contributing to the depression.
What We Treat with TMS Therapy
Depression is among the most common mental health disorders affecting people around the world.
Anxiety disorders can cause people to try to avoid situations that trigger or worsen their symptoms. Their daily routines can be affected.
