Individual therapy is also called therapy, psychotherapy, psychosocial therapy, talk therapy, and counseling. It is a joint process between a licensed therapist and one indiviual within a 1:1 setting. The overall length of time taken for individual therapy varies widely. Usually a minimum of eight sessions are needed to make sure all aspects of the illness have been touched upon. Common goals of therapy may be to motivate change or improve quality of life. People might seek therapy for help with personal, educational, social, or career challenges that are hard to face alone. Therapy can help people overcome obstacles to emotional, physical, spiritual, and mental well-being. It can also increase positive feelings, such as compassion and self-esteem to learn healthy skills for managing difficult situations, making positive decisions, and reaching goals.
