Individual psychotherapy, also referred to by many as individual counseling, is when the therapist and patient
and together to develop ways for best handling these problems. Although there are many theoretical schools for
understanding these issues, research has shown time and time again that the most important factor in successful
therapy is the relationship between the therapist and the patient (see how to choose a therapist) The goals of
therapy need to be mutually determined and to a great extent will determine the type of therapy undertaken,
whether it is short or long-term, individual or group, or possibly marital or family. The goals will hopefully
include positive emotional and spiritual growth, along with improved coping and interpersonal skills for dealing
with one’s daily life. Frequently it is necessary to talk about past issues as they affect the present, but this rather
it is the process of working together that allows true emotional growth and healing. Individual psychotherapy
appointments are generally for 45-50 minutes.
