Individual Therapy is a collaborative process between an individual and their therapist that aims to facilitate change and improve quality of life. Therapy can help people confront barriers that interfere with emotional and mental well-being, and it can also increase positive feelings such as compassion, self-esteem, love, courage, and peace.
Individual Therapy can treat specific, diagnosed mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, or ADHD, in addition to everyday concerns, such as relationship problems, stress management, or other issues that may affect a person's mental well-being.
When specific issues, life situations, or mental health conditions begin to cause distress and interfere with a person's normal activities, it may be time to seek therapy. A therapist can help facilitate lifestyle changes, serve as a listening ear, help identify underlying causes of symptoms, and provide specific strategies or techniques for changing unwanted thoughts, behaviors, or emotions.
Play Therapy is a form of counseling that uses play to communicate with and help people, especially children, to prevent or resolve challenges. This is thought to help move towards better social integration, growth and development, and trauma resolution. For more information, go to http://www.a4pt.org/?page=ptmakesadifference.
