Individual therapy is one type of psychotherapy in which a trained professional helps a single person work through personal issues they have been facing. It is an effective treatment for a variety of emotional difficulties and mental illnesses. It can help improve or control symptoms that influence an individual’s well-being.
Individual therapy assists our clients to understand their innate struggles and conflicts, confront their negative thoughts, enhance psychological maturity, develop effective decision-making skills, and build better interpersonal skills and relationship.
Therapy can help treat mental, emotional, physical, and behavioral issues. Concerns that may be discussed in therapy include, but are not limited to:
Individual therapy sessions often last from 45 to 50 minutes. If you are a new client, you will be provide a free intake for 30 minutes before you meet your therapist, which helps us to know about you and helps you understand the terms of our service, as well as sign service contract and consent form.
Many kinds of mental health professionals provide therapy. The standards for becoming a therapist usually depend on a state’s licensing board. Therapists often have a master’s or doctoral degree. They may also have specific training in psychological counseling. Students working toward an advanced degree may provide therapy with direction from a licensed supervisor.
Therapists can have many titles. These are based on their level of education, training, and role. They can work as licensed professional counselors (LPC), psychologists, licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social workers (LCSW), psychiatric nurses, or psychiatrists.
In LingYu, We think it’s really important that our psychotherapists have a mixture of therapy skills and human qualities that mean you can place your trust in them. We interview every potential partner in person before we agree to work with them, as well as carrying out rigorous background checks.
Anger management is the process of learning to recognize signs that you’re becoming angry and taking action to calm down and deal with the situation in a productive way. Anger management doesn’t try to keep you from feeling anger or encourage you to hold it in. Anger is a normal, healthy emotion when you know how to express it appropriately — anger management is about learning how to do this.
You may learn anger management skills on your own, using books or other resources. But for many people, taking an anger management class or seeing a mental health professional is the most effective approach.
