Individual therapy, also known as counselling or psychotherapy, is an empowering journey of self-awareness and growth. In one-on-one sessions with your therapist, you will explore the thoughts, emotions, and behaviours guiding your life.
Individual counselling is an important method in psychological practice, allowing to diagnose and adjust the current state of a client. The psychologist often helps to change the life for the better, to know oneself, on the other hand, to believe in one’s personality.
When is individual counselling necessary?
Individual counselling can be short-term or long-term. In the first case, to achieve the set result, you need several meetings with a specialist. With long-term psychotherapy, longer treatment is necessary, but the effectiveness of the meetings increases significantly. But sometimes even one conversation can bring significant results. Indeed, for some, it is enough to look at the situation from the side to understand how it can be resolved. In this case, the psychologist directs the conversation in the right direction to help the client figure it out.
Individual counselling is recommended to solve the following problems:
- Low self-esteem;
- Severe life situations (divorce, loss, etc.);
- Crises (age-related, at birth, family, etc.);
- Phobias and fears, panic attacks;
- Dissatisfaction with oneself (appearance, character traits, etc.);
- Problems in relationships with loved ones (between spouses, parents and children, etc.);
- Experiencing chronic negative emotions;
- Dependence (drug addiction, alcoholism, gambling, emotional addiction);
- Psychosomatic diseases;
- Eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia);
- Repetition of the same mistakes and life situations;
- Other life difficulties.
