What is individual therapy?

Individual therapy, sometimes called psychotherapy, gives you a confidential, safe place to talk through problems, mental health struggles, or situations with a trained professional. Individual therapy helps you develop tools to change your thinking or behavior around your issues to improve your overall well-being.

Individual therapy at the Weekend Clinic is delivered via telepsychiatry or remote visits. You meet with your provider remotely, through a smartphone, tablet, or computer, to examine your thoughts, behaviors, and emotions. 

When should I pursue individual therapy?

Individual therapy can help you recognize the issues that trouble or trigger you. You get a safe, nonjudgmental space to release your emotions and thoughts. 

Individual therapy isn’t just for people struggling with mental health conditions. If you’re struggling with any of the following, you may benefit:

  • Trauma
  • Abuse
  • Death of a loved one
  • Extreme stress
  • Sexual problems
  • Medical illness or chronic pain
  • Sleep issues
  • Relationship issues

It’s normal to be hesitant to sign up for individual therapy, but it really can help you work through issues that are weighing you down or preventing you from enjoying life.

What should I expect from individual therapy?

Individual therapy means you meet with your therapist to discuss different issues. You get to do so from the comfort of your own home or another location of your choice. Your therapist helps you explore issues, including: 

  • Expression of thoughts and emotions
  • Behavior patterns
  • Strengths and weaknesses
  • Problem-solving
  • Conflict resolution

Your therapist helps you learn new tools that help you understand why you respond as you do to challenging situations. They also help you develop new ways of responding that help you take more control of your life. 

At your first appointment, your therapist spends time learning about the issues you need to address, your relationships, your lifestyle, and any symptoms. You may find it challenging to open up to your therapist at first, but you develop a more trusting relationship over time. It’s normal to feel angry or to cry during a session.
