Adult Mental Health Therapy in York, Manchester & online
What is Individual Therapy?
We understand it may feel confusing when setting out to begin therapy, and that there are many different types of counselling and psychotherapy to choose from. Individual Therapy means that you are meeting one-on-one with a member of our team, working collaboratively on whatever might be bringing you to therapy. We understand that no two people, or difficulties are the same and therefore we are flexible, and tailor your treatment to support your mental health needs, to offer you the type of counselling or psychotherapy which is the best fit for your needs at that time.
How can Individual Therapy help?
There will be points in life where we all feel worried, sad, upset, or have difficult emotions from time to time, and this is normal. For most people these feelings are only temporary and are resolved without causing any long-term problems. However, experiencing upsetting or distressing feelings that worsen over time can lead people to feel overwhelmed and in need of professional help.
Individual Therapy can help you to overcome hurdles standing in the way of your wellbeing. It can increase positive feelings, such as self esteem or compassion and help you become more self aware. It can equip you with skills for making healthy decisions, handling difficult or tricky situations, and reaching your goals.
What is an Individual Therapy session like?
Individual Therapy is bespoke and can involve several different approaches, depending on your needs. We offer a comprehensive triage or assessment based on your individual needs, to allow us to thoughtfully match you to the best therapeutic approach and therapist for you.
Together you and your therapist will work on an agreed plan which focusses on the areas of your life that you would find it most helpful to talk about. You are invited to review the work at regular intervals and provide feedback on the sessions at any point during your therapy.
Some therapy approaches involve completing questionnaires to help monitor your experience, some may involve practice of techniques and strategies outside of the sessions and some are an open, exploratory space for you to process and digest your experiences and emotions surrounding these.
We understand that seeking therapy can be daunting and that taking the first step can be challenging. We have a team of trained experts available at our clinics in York, Manchester and online.
