Individual Therapy

Individual therapy is a collaborative and ethically guided process conducted one-on-one between the therapist and the client. In the individual therapy process, the client has the opportunity to work on beliefs, emotions, behaviors that may have problematic qualities, and associated physical symptoms, based on the needs they describe. Healthy and dysfunctional belief and behavior patterns are explored, and efforts are made to transform these patterns.

In the individual therapy process, the goal is for the individual to share difficulties related to themselves and their lives with the therapist, aiming to gain personal awareness. Throughout the therapy process, the client can work on challenging emotions such as anxiety, sadness, shame, anger, and guilt, as well as relational problems related to spouse, family, friends, or work life, and intensified stress and coping difficulties in the process of change. Additionally, the individual therapy process can serve the motivation to better understand and know oneself without a triggering symptom.

The therapy process can be described as a journey of discovery where the individual embarks on a journey to explore oneself. Discovery often begins through complaints that are often seen as symptoms but go beyond them. The therapist accompanies the client on this journey. Throughout life, people encounter many changes. In the presence of losses, life flows on, new relationships are formed, efforts are made toward independence, and expected and unexpected disappointments are managed. These changes can occur at any moment, at any age. The purpose of the therapy process is to enable the individual to effectively use the resources they have in the face of challenges created by such internal or external triggers, and to support the development of new resources and coping strategies.
