Individual Therapy

Individual counselingWhat is Individual Therapy?

Individual therapy (sometimes called “psychotherapy” or “counseling”) is a process through which clients work one-on-one with a trained therapist—in a safe, caring, and confidential environment—to explore their feelings, beliefs, or behaviors, work through challenging or influential memories, identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change, better understand themselves and others, set personal goals, and work toward desired change.

People seek therapy for a wide variety of reasons, from coping with major life challenges, childhood trauma, addictions, severe behavioral problems, school failure, couple issues (working on them separately) or anger to dealing with depression or anxiety, to simply desiring personal growth and greater self-knowledge. A client and therapist may work together for as few as five or six sessions or as long as several years, depending on the client’s unique needs and personal goals for therapy.

In talk therapy or psychotherapy, a therapist helps to make sense of an individual’s concerns and to assist them in seeking resolution to their concerns. Therapy has been shown to be most effective when there is a positive working relationship with one’s therapist; when an individual has a desire and willingness to change; and when the individual takes steps to use therapeutic suggestions outside of appointments.

Therapy is a collaborative process through which the therapist and client work to establish goals for treatment and develops strategies to reach those goals. Treatment is individualized, based on the therapist’s approach and the individual’s needs.
