Starting Individual therapy

What is individual therapy?

Individual therapy, also known as individual-counseling, allows people to engage in private sessions with a skilled therapist, counselor, or psychologist. The core objective of individual therapy is to establish a secure and confidential setting where they can openly discuss whatever emotional, psychological, or behavioral challenges you face. Through these one-on-one sessions, the client and therapist work together to delve into, comprehend, and ultimately find solutions for the issues at hand in their life.

How does individual therapy work?

Individual therapy unfolds in a structured process, commencing with an initial assessment in which the therapist gathers essential information about your history, concerns, and objectives. Together, you and your therapist collaboratively establish specific, attainable goals for your sessions, which can encompass symptom alleviation, personal development, or finding solutions to particular challenges.

Can individual therapy help me?

Yes, individual therapy, also known as individual-counseling, at Thriveworks can help you to improve your mental health and overall quality of life.

Is individual therapy conducted in person or online?

Individual therapy at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and via Online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does individual therapy last?

The duration of your individual therapy sessions will vary. The decision on the number and frequency of sessions is typically collaboratively determined by the client and therapist.

How much does individual therapy cost?

At Thriveworks, we take most major forms of insurance, which means that many of our clients only pay $0-$50 co-pay per session. However, there are also self-pay options that sit around $200 per session, depending on the service and location, for those who are out-of-network.

Need more help deciding?

For many years, using the words “counseling” or “therapy” made people uneasy and uncomfortable. However, there is now a greater openness to discuss the pressure that careers, family relationships, and social networks can create. Many people are also discovering that seeking help in handling life’s stress is an important part of their overall well-being. Unaddressed stress can lead to depression and anxiety, and learning healthy coping skills can be vital to living a life of fulfillment and emotional health.

People should take pride in their achievements, but at the same time, all success, whether in their careers or in their relationships, requires guidance from a trusted support system. The same trust that people have in medical professionals is now being shared with behavioral health clinicians such as psychiatrists, psychologists, nurse practitioners, clinical social workers, and licensed mental health counselors.

The support of a Thriveworks Franklin mental health counselor can be helpful in overcoming struggles with depression, anxiety, trauma, addictions, and other mental health afflictions, and it can also provide guidance during life changing events. These events may include grieving due to the loss of a loved one, the emotional pain that results from divorce, or difficulties resulting from being laid off from a job.

Life coaching at Thriveworks Franklin can provide needed support that helps people function at their highest potential or helps them communicate effectively in a variety of social settings. Life coaching can provide a vital component in the achievement of goals and dreams.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
