Individual Therapy

Individual therapy is appropriate if you are feeling unhappy, anxious, worried, depressed or fearful.

Therapy can help you to:

  • Appreciate and develop your own potential in order to make positive, practical changes in your life, relationships, and performance at work or at school
  • Learn new skills in order to cope with the stressors you face and to feel better about yourself
  • Learn to understand and adjust your emotional responses
  • Let go of your negative patterns of thinking, feeling, or acting in order to apply new, more effective solutions
  • Discover how to resolve your inner tension and damaged relationships in order to feel happier and more fulfilled

Examples of treatment options include:

  • Cognitive behavioural therapy, for example, to treat clients with obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, phobias, or posttraumatic stress disorder
  • Hypnotherapy, for example, for reducing pain or stopping unwanted habits
  • Mindfulness meditation, aimed at achieving more positive emotional responses
