Individual counseling provides a space that promotes emotional safety, healing, restoration, and an opportunity for self-reflection. The therapist helps the client identify specific difficulties, and creates unique goals that honor the individual’s personal values. A number of therapeutic techniques may be employed.
Counseling is helpful for a wide range of goals. Presenting issues may range from healing from a loss or trauma to treating a psychological disorder. Some people find counseling useful for moving toward career goals or improving old relationship patterns. Others find that the therapeutic relationship creates a space to feel heard and find support for stressors. No matter what the goal, your therapist is your biggest fan. Clients can expect acceptance, support, and respect.
