Individual therapy is a collaborative process between therapist and a client, during which the therapist follows client’s experience and facilitates the process of change. This is a one-to-one encounter that provides a supportive environment that allows you to talk openly with someone who’s objective, neutral and nonjudgmental.
Psychotherapy is often referred to as talk therapy. You will have an opportunity to engage in a dialogue about your problems and how to fix them. Beside the use of conversation, individual psychotherapy also involves exploration of body experiences, role-playing, development of imagery, and use of other creative methods.
