How do individual therapy sessions work?
Therapy sessions can be tailored to meet individual needs and address specific issues. The most common format is individual therapy, where it is just you and your psychotherapist in the room. This approach can be beneficial for a wide range of concerns, such as anxiety, stress, depression, trauma, and low self-esteem.
Booking an appointment for individual therapy is a straightforward process. Our website provides an extensive database of certified therapists and counsellors. You can browse their profiles, which include information about their areas of specialisation and location. If you prefer in-person therapy, you can filter the search results by location to find a therapist near you. On the therapist’s profile, you will find a “Book Appointment” button, which allows you to schedule a session.
In addition to in-person therapy, we also offer the option of online therapy sessions. This can be a convenient choice if you are not ready for face-to-face sessions or prefer the flexibility of virtual sessions. Online therapy provides an opportunity to get to know your therapist, become comfortable with the session format, and transition to in-person therapy when you feel ready.
Confidentiality is of utmost importance in therapy. Our therapists and counsellors are accredited by UK governing bodies and adhere to a strict code of conduct, ensuring that all sessions are completely confidential.
Whether you choose in-person or online therapy, our goal is to connect you with a qualified professional who can provide the support and guidance you need on your mental health journey. Take the first step towards healing by booking an individual therapy session today.
What to expect from the sessions?
Individual therapy sessions provide a confidential and secure space to discuss your concerns, emotions, and problems. The aim of therapy is not to eliminate life’s challenges but to equip you with the necessary tools to navigate them in a healthy manner, challenge negative thinking patterns, and achieve emotional well-being.
Typically, individual therapy involves engaging in conversation. Your therapist will ask questions to explore various aspects of your life that have a negative impact. This may include past experiences, fears, conflicts, strengths and weaknesses, and harmful behavioral patterns. The therapist’s approach will be tailored to your specific needs, and they may incorporate exercises to delve into your subconscious and facilitate healing.
Common therapy approaches used in individual therapy include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), EMDR, Gestalt therapy, experiential psychotherapy, and Integrative Cognitive Therapy. The choice of therapy will depend on the severity of your concerns and your response to the sessions.
It is important to address the stigma surrounding mental health that sometimes prevents people from seeking therapy. Therapy can be a transformative experience, providing a space for open discussion and helping you become the best version of yourself. You don’t have to wait until you reach a breaking point to seek therapy. Starting therapy early can be highly beneficial, as it allows you to address warning signs and receive guidance in processing your emotions during challenging periods.
Individual therapy is not limited to those with clinical mental health disorders. It is beneficial for anyone who seeks support in understanding and managing their feelings. Don’t hesitate to reach out for therapy when you need guidance and assistance on your personal journey.
