What Is Individual Therapy?

Individual therapy is a joint process between a therapist and a person in therapy. Common goals of therapy can be to inspire change or improve quality of life.

It could be time to seek therapy if your symptoms are causing you distress or interferes with your day-to-day life. Distress can mean negative thoughts, feelings, behaviors, or even a bodily sensation such as pain or fatigue. It is important not to wait until symptoms become severe before going to therapy. Therapy can also help if you cannot focus on school or work, experience addiction, or experiencing thoughts or feelings of self-harm or thoughts or feelings of harming others.

  • Family issues
  • Sexuality
