Questions to ask yourself if you think individual therapy might be right for you:
Are you having a difficult time handling the struggles in your life?
Could you use an objective view of what you’re going through or a non-judgmental ear just to listen?
Do you think you could benefit the most from individualized attention?
Are you hesitant to talk to others about your problems?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then individual therapy could be the solution you’ve been seeking. It would allow you to be the sole focus of a therapist who helps you develop and achieve your goals for therapy.
If you’ve been feeling hopeless or lost lately, personal sessions could help you improve your everyday life. When you’re struggling with a problem that feel insurmountable, putting a confidential professional in your corner can help you win against whatever it is you’re battling.
Some other common scenarios for which individual therapy can help:
- You keep worrying about the same problem over and over
- You don’t know who you could ever trust with knowing about your secret struggle
- You’re interested in therapy, but you don’t want to give up total control
- Other areas of your life are being negatively impacted by your struggle
- You need somebody to listen to you and your feelings for once
- You’re interested in therapy, but not sure how it could fit into your life
Individual therapy is so helpful for many people because it’s the best way to get customized therapy. Group therapy may have its own set of numerous advantages, but if you want more control over the pacing of your therapy, the methods used, the amount of analysis or feedback you can receive, and the timing of your sessions, you owe it to yourself to look into individual therapy.
