THERAPY

Therapy as a definition is the corrective treatment of a mental or bodily disorder. It is the process by which, once diagonsed, a patient attempts, through the help of a professional, to remedy their syndrome.

Many associate "therapy" purely with psychotherapy, the practice that helps individuals overcome emotional and psychological issues. However, there are many different job types within therapy, such as hypnotherapy, pysiotherapy and speech and language therapy that do not focus purely on the mind.

Therapy is an extremely rewarding career due to its primary focus of helping an individual rehabilitate their condition. No matter what type of therapy is undertaken it is often a requirement of the therapist to be an emotional support to the patient, be sensitive of their situation and work out the best way to make them as well a possible.
