Individual therapy provides you with concentrated focus to help you face your fears and learn to become more fully yourself. Most people get stuck from time to time and working with a therapist can help you to get unstuck. Personal counseling is aimed to help you overcome limiting beliefs, identify restrictive thought patterns, develop constructive self-talk, and create strategies to begin moving in the direction of your desires. Through counseling you will receive support, guidance and resources to inspire and move you toward your goals.
Working with a therapist one-on-one gives you an opportunity to focus on your own needs and desires without interruptions from others. Personal therapy is a partnership between you and your therapist focused on progressing towards your goals. The therapist will have more time to focus on your issues and often you are able to go deeper into your inner problems than you can in a group setting or family therapy.
Common concerns focused on in individual counseling include:
- Interpersonal problems
- Work or career issues
- Attachment issues
- Low self-esteem
- Cutting, burning or other forms of self harm
- Negative thinking and negative self-talk
- Poor coping skills
