What exactly is Psychotherapy?

The general term for treatment approaches to mental illness. There are a number of varieties which include individual, group, insight-oriented, supportive, and biological approaches. But the key feature of them all is that they involve some attempt to understand and alter mental illness. What differs are what is kept in focus during treatment. Sessions are usually once or twice per week and last for 45 minutes. In exclusively biological approaches the sessions are much shorter. The following brief descriptions should spell the distinctions of different types of psychotherapy out more clearly.
