What is Individual Therapy

Individual therapy is a process through which clients work one-on-one with a trained therapisto 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.

Understanding Individual Therapy

It could be time to seek therapy if an issue causes distress or interferes with daily life.  It is important not to wait until symptoms become severe before going to therapy.

It may be best to seek therapy if you are often unhappy or feel overwhelmed and hopeless about issues in your life. Therapy can also help if you cannot focus on work or school, experience addiction, or feel like hurting yourself or someone else.

Therapy can help treat mental, emotional, physical, and behavioral issues. Concerns that may be discussed in therapy include, but are not limited to:

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Food and eating issues
  • Anger
  • Relationship or marriage challenges
  • Addiction
  • Abuse
  • Family issues
  • Insomnia
  • Sexuality

The first session of therapy often focuses on gathering information. A therapist speaks with the person in treatment about their past physical, mental, and emotional health.

They also discuss the concerns bringing the person to therapy. It can take a few sessions for a therapist to have a good understanding of the situation. Only then can they address concerns and determine the best course of action.

Even if therapy cannot cure a condition, it can help people develop healthy coping skills. Determination to be active in therapy and heal is essential for meeting therapeutic goals and fostering a positive therapeutic relationship.

Finding the right therapist is also crucial to the treatment process.

You and your therapist can decide if family members need to be involved or if family therapy is an option.

Why Should I choose Individual Therapy

Individual therapy is just one of the various ways that psychology professionals can assist people. Just like other types of treatment and strategies such as group or family therapy, individual counseling also has a number of advantages and benefits.

In general, it is more personalized and the practitioner is allowed to focus on the client’s specific problems. This way, the professional can develop a set of recommendations, strategies, and treatment tailor-fit to the patient’s situation.

Further, individual therapy can help with: developing fresh perspectives about life and new skills, deal with addictive behaviors, find ways to relate and deal with emotional suffering, improve relationships, and regain sense of self. From Source.
