Individual therapy, also known as psychotherapy, talk therapy, or counseling, is a collaborative process between therapist and client that aims to facilitate change and improve quality of life. Counseling can help people confront barriers that interfere with emotional and mental well-being, and it can also increase positive feelings such as compassion, self-esteem, love, courage, and peace. Many people find they enjoy the therapeutic journey of becoming more self-aware, and they may pursue ongoing counseling as a means of further self-growth.
Sometimes specific issues or mental health conditions can begin to cause distress and interfere with a person's normal activities. If this happens, it is time to seek therapy. Distress can manifest in the form of problematic beliefs, feelings, behaviors, and sensations in the body. A therapist can facilitate lifestyle changes, serve as a listening ear, help identify underlying causes of symptoms, and provide specific strategies or techniques for changing unwanted thoughts, behaviors, or emotions. Through counseling, people gather tools to manage symptoms, alleviate stress, and face challenges.
