Individual therapy is where you can experience a safe environment to explore your personal thoughts and goals. The confidential setting allows you to talk freely about what you desire and need in your life. It also helps with providing a support system. Maybe you just need to talk and be heard. People come in for individual therapy for many different reasons. Beginning to open up is half the struggle and once we are there, we can find solutions.
Something magical happens when you come to speak with an unrelated, unbiased person in a nonjudgmental, confidential environment. Unless you are suicidal, homicidal, conducting or experiencing child abuse….Your words are protected and safe by the state in the counseling room. I can reveal your information to another ONLY IF you sign a release and ask me to tell them. It can make a difference when you can talk to someone you do not personally know about your thoughts and emotions in a safe place.
Whether you’re coming in for trauma therapy or self-awareness counseling, you will find that the individual therapy approach can help you discover your strengths. It can also accent your positive attributes. Each person has character strengths that can be encouraged and enhanced. Everyone can benefit from knowing your own gifts.
