Individual
Psychotherapy

In individual therapy sessions, the client and therapist have the opportunity to work closely together, build a trusting relationship, and really address any issues arising. In comparison to group therapy, the focus is on the single client and the relationship, rather than the process of the group as a whole.

The various individual therapy techniques offer different modalities to help individuals address difficulties, gain insight, and build new coping mechanisms. Together with a therapist, you can uncover the difficulties you are facing and cultivate new perspectives and actions. A therapist is on your side, and the relationship is built with a strong foundation of trust. Over time, individual therapy sessions allow the relationship to mature and deepen.

There are many benefits of individual therapy which have been found in various studies. Different types of individual therapy may have different benefits, but here are a few well-researched individual therapy benefits:

  • May provide longer-lasting benefits than psychopharmacological treatments for some conditions

  • Effective across age ranges, including children, adults, and older adults

  • Benefits of individual therapy may actually grow after treatment is complete

  • Therapy may help individuals suffering from anxiety and depression return to a level of functioning similar to a person not afflicted with a mood disorder
