One on one. Me and you.
Fifty minutes once a week to sit down and reflect on the ways in which you contribute to the things that are keeping you stuck. In individual therapy, you work one on one with a therapist on the things that you are dissatisfied with. Together, we map out a plan to help you move from point A to point B and ultimately, feel better.
Therapy requires work and a dedication to the process. In session, we examine family history, relationship history, symptom history, and try to uncover patterns that contribute to the problem. Sometimes we discuss recent happenings, sometimes we dig into the past. In other sessions you might work on learning processes that can help to alleviate symptoms and lead to understanding of the physiological manifestations that are adding to the feelings you are experiencing. Between sessions you might get something to work on. There is a lot of trying things out in order to see what works for you.
The ultimate goal is to get you to a place where you feel better and have the understanding, skills and tools you need to keep you there.
