What is Individual Therapy?
Individual therapy, or individual counseling, is an opportunity to receive support and experience growth during challenging times in life. Individual counseling can help you deal with anger, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, marriage and relationship challenges, parenting problems, school difficulties, career changes, etc.
Individual counseling (sometimes called psychotherapy or talk therapy) is a process through which clients work one-on-one with a mental health professional in a safe, confidential environment. Counseling allows individuals to explore their feelings, beliefs, and 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.
Individual therapy is counseling focused on the individual’s immediate or near future concerns. Individual counseling may encompass career counseling and planning, grief after a loved one dies, or working through issues at work before they become big. Individual counseling is supported by the one-on-one relationship, or bond, between the counselor and client that enables trust and personal growth.
