Individual Therapy Q&A

What is individual therapy?

Individual therapy is a one-on-one session with you and your Hopeful Minds Counseling Services therapist. This type of therapy focuses solely on your needs and individual goals.

Your therapist creates a safe space where you can confidently explore your experiences, thoughts, and emotions. They listen, identify negative or problematic thoughts and behaviors, identify your inner strengths, and teach you the skills you need to improve your mental health or life circumstances.

When might I need individual therapy?

Individual therapy can help when you feel stuck in life, can’t make a major decision, or need guidance for making it through a life transition while keeping your emotional balance.

Many people seek individual therapy to learn specific skills, such as managing anger, overcoming low self-esteem, or learning to resolve conflicts.

You may have constant stress or negative feelings that don’t get better. Or you may realize you keep repeating the same dysfunctional behaviors and want to learn how to stop the cycle.

Hopeful Minds Counseling Services offers individual therapy for mental health disorders, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Eating disorders
  • Trauma
  • Grief and Loss
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Substance use disorder (including addiction)

Their caring specialists also provide individual therapy for people in the LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities. Your Hopeful Minds Counseling Services therapist focuses on the social and cultural challenges unique to your race or gender choices, often helping people manage the impact of racism, discrimination, and violence on their mental health.

What type of individual therapy might I need? 

These are only a few examples of the therapies used during individual counseling:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
  • Trauma-informed therapy
  • Emotionally focused therapy (EFT)
  • Interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT)
  • Solution-focused therapy
  • Psychodynamic psychotherapy
  • Narrative therapy
  • Mindfulness-based therapies

Each type of therapy takes a different approach. Some are like guided conversations; others are structured to focus on a specific issue.

What should I expect during individual therapy?

The number of sessions, their frequency, and how long your therapy lasts depends on your problem or diagnosis, symptom severity, and the type of therapy.

When you begin therapy, you identify the goals you want to achieve. Treatment typically ends when you reach those goals. Though your therapist may estimate how long that will take, therapy is also flexible to ensure you feel better before leaving.
