Individual therapy refers to one-on-one mental health treatment that is personalized to suit an individual’s unique needs. It involves setting therapeutic goals, processes one’s past, and learning how to manage one’s symptoms or triggers in order to live a healthier life.

It’s great to have someone in your life to whom you feel comfortable opening up, but a therapist brings something a little different to the table, such as:
At Hope Counseling Services, we take a very direct approach. We think that it is critical to identify the challenges our clients face, identify a very direct and proactive approach, and structure a clear plan towards a successful "road map" to mental health.
No one is saying that self-help, self-care, and self-improvement strategies don’t figure into happiness. At Hope Counseling Services, we believe successful therapy occurs through human connection, not solo exploration. We know that you already have many of the answers inside you, yet it is often clouded by the challenges of ones life and difficult unlock them. Hope Counseling Services can assist during these difficult times. Contact us today!
Individual therapy focuses on the individual’s personal goals. Here are some examples of individual therapy goals:
It’s often the case that current problems can sometimes be a gateway to exploring longer-standing patterns in your life. In general, we recommend therapy for at least six months in order to effectively treat any acute symptoms as well as explore any chronic ones that may be occurring.
Hope Counseling Services is skilled at helping clients discover their own motivation and ability to effect real, long-term change. The therapeutic process is most effective when it’s based on a strong alliance between our therapists and clients. This means that the client feels safe, supported, heard, and understood. The client feels that their therapist shares their goals and has their best interests at heart.
Though there are common focuses for therapy clients, the goals for individual therapy are between you and your therapist. We're going to be unique to you and work through the issues together.
