Individual Therapy

Individual counselling for adults (18+)

Individual counselling consists of 60 minute sessions either online or in-person. 

Every persons therapy looks different depending on their needs, issues and preferred style. So you have an idea of what therapy might look like, our general approach for individual counselling is outlined below.

Phase 1: Understanding you.

The first session will usually consist of getting an understanding of what's bringing you in. We'll also talk about what your life has looked like so far, for example family and attachment history, social experiences, major life events, culture/religion, relationships etc. It can feel strange speaking about your personal life to a stranger. Your comfort and safety will always be the first priority each session so there's no pressure to talk about anything you're not ready to. 

Phase 2: Applying interventions and strategies.

Once we've talked about what's bringing you in and your background, we can get an idea of what approaches might be most helpful for you. This might look like: strategies around self-acceptance, ways to reduce self-criticism, working toward a secure attachment style, improving low mood, reducing anxiety, challenging unhelpful thoughts/beliefs. 

Phase 3: Maintaining your gains.

This part of therapy is about maintaining the improvements you have made. You might be armed with more helpful beliefs, stronger relationships and emotional regulation skills, but being human means life challenges will continue to arise. We can check in and discuss each situation together to continue to explore what might be helpful.
