Benefits of Individual Therapy

Individual therapy is a collaborative process with the client and therapist where common goals are worked on in each session. These goals may include improving one’s quality of life, overcoming stress, symptom management, learning coping skills, and/or improving self-image, concept, self-esteem. 

What's included?

Several forms of therapies are available for individuals, and the benefits are many, which include:

Types of Individual Therapy We Can Provide

Because every individual is unique, with their own needs and goals to achieve mental wellness, we provide many varied forms of professional psychotherapies including, while not limited to, the following services.

For any individual who tends to fight or feel guilty about their thoughts and feelings. This form of psychotherapy focuses on accepting life’s hardships, choosing directional values, and then taking action from there.

CBT may help you manage your current struggles by learning to understand how your thoughts affect your behaviours. The ultimate goal of CBT is to help you change your behaviours by targeting negative thoughts. While mostly used for anxiety and depression, it’s helpful for all kinds of mental struggles. You will become more aware of your negative thinking, so you can respond to them more effectively.

DBT is an extension of CBT and is considered a third-wave therapy that includes innovations and extensions under the umbrella of CBT. DBT may be used in tandem with CBT, or even by itself. DBT includes four modules of psychological and emotional function including: mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, distress tolerance, and emotion regulation. DBT is most useful for individuals in need of structure in their sessions while learning how to manage their emotions more easily. Once used primarily for Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), individuals who have ADHD, PTSD, OCD, depression, and anxiety can all benefit from DBT as well.

A therapeutic approach that emotions are the key to identity. While most frequently seen in couples therapy, EFT can also be used to address post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and depression in individuals, couples, and families.

This form of therapy involves eye movements or other bilateral stimulation (tapping, sounds, or visual movements) guided by the psychotherapist. Undergoing EMDR will enable you to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress results from your more disturbing life experiences.

For depression and chronic sadness both, this therapy combines cognitive therapy with meditation and mindfulness practices. Going through MBCT will teach you to pay greater attention to your conscious feelings and thoughts, without placing any judgments upon them.
