What is Individual Therapy?
Individual therapy is a method of psychotherapy in which a client and trained therapist regularly meet to work through a variety of potential mental health concerns. Therapy is a space in which you are able to freely explore areas of your life. This may include your emotions, distressing thoughts, difficult relationships, tough life circumstances, and much more. The great thing about individual therapy is that it is what you make it. It is the job of the therapist to support you through your journey to achieve positive mental health, which includes exploring and talking about what you find meaningful each session.
Therapy has time and time again been supported by research as an effective and beneficial tool to create positive mental health change. Some benefits include:
Emotional relief. Openly discussing how we can be unbelievably relieving. Building better relationships with our emotions helps us build better relationships with ourselves.
More fulfilling relationships. A part of therapy can include creating relationships that are meaningful and contain less conflict. We especially focus on the most important relationship in our lives: with ourselves.
A clearer mind. The way we think about ourselves, others, and situations heavily influences our lives. By talking to one of our trained therapists, we can lessen the frequency and severity of intrusive, recurrent, and negative thoughts.
Manage stress more efficiently. We all have various forms of stress in our lives, but an important part of therapy is to find ways to reduce and limit its impact on us.
Lasting change. The overall goal of therapy is to create lasting change that improves each person’s quality of life. This looks different for each person and is collaborated on by you and your therapist.
Improved performance at work/school. When we struggle with our mental health, it can have effects on every part of our lives. By modifying how we think, feel, and act, we can be more focused and live fulfilling lives.
