Individual Therapy Service
Loss. Grief. Trauma. Life can be really hard.
Like a tornado leaving a path of ruin, life’s hardships can leave destructive pathways in every area of your life, including sleep disruption, relationship issues, and lingering feelings you can’t seem to shake.
You know something needs to change, but you aren’t sure where to start. Individual counseling can be the first step to start you on a path from feelings of chaos to calming restoration. It is an investment in your current and future quality of life, and you are worth it. It is also a tangible action step towards the changes you are hoping to foster in your life.
Individual Counseling is Empowering
You are not broken. Humans feel, and that is normal. It is also normal to need help processing feelings occasionally. Perhaps you aren’t having difficulty with emotions, but there is something else you want to see changed in your life.
Either way, individual counseling can be empowering, and seeking it out reveals the strength required to recognize that your life can improve with new tools to cope and inspire you.
At Eunoia Counseling, we partner with you to gather the best tools for your individual “toolbox,” so you are empowered to live the life you envision.
Individual Counseling is a Partnership
Our individual counseling sessions are not “one size fits all.” They are adapted to best support you and your specific goal areas.
It is essential that you feel safe during counseling sessions in order to build a trusting partnership with your therapist. It can take time to build trust, or you may sense it quickly, but that pace is up to you.
During initial sessions with your therapist, comfort and trust build as you engage in supportive conversations about significant background life events, relationships, and areas of difficulty. You have the power to share as you’re ready. You can move slowly or quickly, depending upon your comfort level.
At Eunoia, we meet you where you are and take the next life-changing steps together. We do not judge you about your past or current behaviors – instead, we help you establish new, healthy coping strategies, or “tools,” that work for you.
Individual Counseling Approaches
We will help you pinpoint important goal areas, and these will serve as a blueprint for the counseling process. We will help you identify the barriers that are getting in the way of living your best life. We utilize research-based strategies derived from DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy), trauma-informed care, and ACT (Acceptance Commitment Therapy) in sessions, along with other approaches. Where helpful, we may incorporate reading, writing, worksheets, and other exercises into the counseling process so clients can fully embrace the skills.
Benefits of Individual Counseling
There are difficulties in life that you might not be comfortable sharing with friends or family members, but you don’t want to endure them alone. Sometimes, you need the skill and confidentiality provided by quality licensed therapists.
There are limitless benefits to individual counseling because it can help you restore your mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being as you identify your goals and accomplish them one by one. Your self-esteem increases and you begin to extend the same compassion to yourself that you give to others. Other therapeutic benefits to your life include:
- Increased self-awareness
- New insight about your past and how it influences the present
- Techniques learned to decrease anxiety
- Learn tools to change unhealthy thought patterns or mindsets
- Ability to identify trauma triggers and tips to manage them
- Improved relationships
- Improved communication with others
- Fresh perspective
- Better physical health
- Feel empowered
If you feel that negative coping skills or unhealthy thoughts are keeping you stuck in a particular area of your life, individual counseling sessions can help you achieve a life you imagined without these hindrances.
