Individual therapy involves a one to one session with a therapist who is knowledgeable about a range of emotional and psychological issues and can support individual clients to deal with such issues. Clients seek out individual therapy for any number of problems, from particular life crises and transitions, to ongoing struggles with problems such as addictions, anxiety or depression.
The goal of such therapy at the OCFI is to help clients find and believe in their strengths and make positive choices for themselves and their loved ones. In this form of therapy, you can expect to be listened to with empathy and respect. The therapist is a consultant who will help you put your difficult experiences and emotions together in new ways and so find positive ways of coping and growing.
