What is Individual Counseling?
Individual counseling is a personal opportunity to receive support and experience growth during challenging times in life. Individual counseling can help one deal with many personal topics in life such as anger, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, marriage and relationship challenges, parenting problems, school difficulties, career changes, etc.
How Are Therapy Goals, Frequency, and Duration Determined?
In general, the goal of psychotherapy is to talk through mental health concerns and help clients heal, grow, and move toward more productive, psychologically healthy lives. Good therapy is client-driven, and specific goals for therapy will be determined by you and your therapist.
Sessions for one-on-one psychotherapy usually last between 50 and 60 minutes. Your needs, treatment objectives, and progress will all play a major role in determining the frequency and length of therapy. While many issues can be handled quickly with short-term therapy, some, more complicated or chronic issues necessitate long-term commitment before progress can be made.
