Common goals of individual therapy, can be to inspire change or improve quality of life. People may seek therapy for help with issues that are hard to face alone. Individual therapy can help people overcome obstacles to their well-being. It can increase positive feelings, such as compassion and self-esteem. People in therapy can learn skills for handling difficult situations, making healthy decisions, and reaching goals. Many find they enjoy the therapeutic journey of becoming more self-aware. Some people even go to ongoing therapy for self-growth.
Common issues discussed during individual counseling sessions can include (but are not limited to) anxiety, depression, relationship issues, decision-making, past hurts and trauma, crises of faith, codependency and struggles with self-worth, among others.
In individual counseling sessions, the client and counselor meet one-on-one to clarify the presenting problem, set goals and establish a plan to create positive change. During these sessions, clients increase their understanding of self, transform negative states, and strengthen their capacity to effectively manage personal and professional challenges. Counseling can be short or long-term, depending on the client’s unique needs and personal goals. Clients work at their own pace and comfort level to help find freedom, joy, and healing.
