What is your go-to approach for individual therapy?

My go-to approach for helping people in individual therapy is cognitive behavioral therapy. I find that it benefits people to identify the negative thinking patterns that they engage in and then reframe and replace these thoughts with rational ones.

What tools do you teach in individual therapy?

I teach the following tools in individual therapy:

  • Identifying negative thought patterns that clients believe to be factual.
  • Identify how and why clients developed negative thought patterns so that they can recognize how this way of thinking impacts their feelings.
  • Develop the skills of reframing and replacing negative thought patterns.
  • Focused breathing and other relaxation techniques.
  • Assertive communication.

How do you know when a client is making meaningful progress in individual therapy?

I know that a client is making meaningful progress in individual therapy when they report an improvement in their ability to manage difficult feelings so that they have less impact on their daily functioning.

What can clients do in their personal time to supplement individual therapy?

I encourage clients to document situations in which they experience negative self-talk that results in their experiencing difficult feelings. I then encourage them to document statements that counter the negative thoughts. I encourage clients to journal what they are grateful for during each day. I encourage the use of relaxation techniques daily.

What should someone do to prepare for starting individual therapy?

To prepare for your first individual therapy session, you can consider what you hope to achieve by engaging in the therapeutic process. Consider what factors are contributing to your current emotional distress and what you have tried to help you cope.

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 you 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?

Our counselors at Thriveworks-Reading, are here to help and guide you. They are highly educated, experienced, and dedicated to assist you in your journey and to navigate the tricky curves that you encounter on your voyage. We would be honored to be by your side. “Buck up camper, we’ll tackle this mountain together!”

What is Counseling?

Counseling is a process in which professionals assist people in overcoming personal challenges and obstacles in their lives. These challenges could include stress, anxiety, depression, anger, self-esteem, grief and loss, relationship problems, lack of coping skills, changing difficult behaviors, or even adjusting to difficult changes in your life; among many other issues too many to list. Counseling is about a relationship with someone that you can trust to support you throughout the process.

How Does Counseling Work?

At Thriveworks-Reading, a counselor will take the time to meet with you individually and confidentially, in order to hear your story. They will help you understand exactly what the problem is and work together with you to identify and prioritize goals. Then they will assist you in developing a unique and individualized plan that will help shape your course. They will provide you with strategies and techniques to help you overcome your obstacles. They can help you with mapping out your future and finding a solution to your problems, or at the very least make them more manageable.

How Can I Make the Most of Counseling?

Counselors don’t have a magic wand, although sometimes it may feel that way. It is important to be as honest and open as possible with your counselor so that they can help you the best way they know how. They might give you assignments to work on in-between sessions. Although life is busy and it may seem silly, this will reinforce what you are learning and help you grow. Practice makes things more fluent and easy to do. Sometimes counseling might seem confusing. Your counselor has the right road map to get you out of the jungle, but you can’t see the other side. It is important to trust your counselor. They have seen other people come out on the other side. They have experience getting people safely to their destination.

It is important to note that although counseling is extremely beneficial, sometimes initially it can make you feel worse. It is similar to opening up an infected wound. It hurts, but you have to open it up and get all the yucky stuff out in order for it to heal correctly.

I am pleased to have someone I can tell how I am feeling that I would not express to family or friends. The medication helps me to get a better night sleep and helps me feel better the following days and to cope throughout the days that follow.

I'm very fortunate to have gotten such a great Therapist Lauren Lowe. She is a very good listener and helps me with my anxiety. Lauren gives me ideas how to manage the anxiety. I see her every Wednesday afternoon and go over what has happened for the week to help me cope with things I have problems with. I look forward to see her and all the help she has given me. I rate her very highly as a Therapist.

I took my preteen child there, who did not want to go at all and after 1 session my child was willing to go back, reporting the counselor was so nice! I instantly saw a change in my child, we will continue to attend throughout the summer to continue to make progress. When we arrived, I instantly felt comfortable in this calm environment. I recommend this office to anyone.
