Most people are familiar with the concept of individual psychotherapy. A client, also referred to by some as a patient, meets with a trained psychotherapist to address any number of issues or behaviors the individual may have, that are interfering with their well-being or ability to function in life.
- Mood and anxiety difficulties
- Challenging or difficult memories or the lack of memories
- Behavioral problems related to food, alcohol or drugs
- Difficulties in work or interpersonal relationships
- Existential concerns
- Conflicts within one’s social or cultural or religious groups
Some individuals embark on a course of therapy for personal development – to challenge themselves, deepen their understanding of themselves and expand their capacity for a richer and fuller life.
