What is Individual Therapy?

"Individual therapy is a type of psychotherapy in which a therapist helps the patient work through personal issues they have been facing. In individual therapy, the therapist encourages the person seeking therapy to talk about their feelings and emotions while teaching them or coping skills.

Individual therapy is an effective treatment for a number of mental illnesses and emotional difficulties. Many people with substance abuse issues also seek out individual therapy to conquer their inner demons and remain on the path to sobriety.

Individual therapy aims to improve an individual’s emotional and mental health while helping resolve troublesome beliefs, behaviors, thoughts, or emotions. A psychotherapist helps their patients learn skills for happy relationships and work on their social skills.

A typical individual therapy session can last between 45 minutes to an hour. Depending on treatment goals and the patient’s condition, therapy can last anywhere from a few weeks to a year."
