What is Online Individual or Personal Counselling?

We all go through periods of emotional stress. Having a safe space in which to speak through and work through the emotional impacts can significantly change your perspective and find a way forward.

There are no “big or small” issues. We are all unique individuals and the impact of life and those around us affect us differently. If you are experiencing negative feelings or engaging in negative coping mechanisms,  and need help, speaking to a trained online professional can give you the support and guidance you need.

Individual counselling is psychotherapy that focuses on resolving issues within a safe, judgement-free environment where the sole focus is on one person. Emphasis is placed on building a comfortable, trusting relationship between client and counsellor, where the client is free to express their innermost thoughts, and together with the counsellor, find a resolution to issues that plague them.

Sometimes the issue is all-consuming – in this case, various techniques are employed (Read More Here) in order to get to the root of the problem and resolve it.

So many issues that people experience are the result of hurts they have experienced at the hands of loved ones, and so family, couples trauma or relationship therapy could also help.

TherapyNow’s comprehensive Online Structured Programme is customised to your unique situation and needs. Whatever your circumstance – we can help you.

You may have completed an inpatient stay at a treatment centre, but this may be just the restart you need to truly begin your recovery journey.

Will I Benefit From Individual or Personal Psychotherapy?

Anyone who experiences negative thought patterns, who is stuck in a way of life that is not reflective of who they are or want to be, who cannot seem to get out of a rut, who is tired of living in the past and reliving old hurts, or who simply needs someone to listen to them and share their burden can benefit from individual online counselling. People who struggle with substances, who have been sexually, physically or emotionally abused, struggle with depression or anxiety, have lost a loved one, a job or experienced any kind of emotional trauma should consider individual counselling.

Individual Counselling in South Africa

Individual counselling is a one-on-one, collaborative process between counsellor and client. This type of therapy is very personalised and allows the client to receive feedback and tips from the counsellor. This can help the client develop new perspectives and deal with emotional trauma in an adaptive way.

If the issues that you find yourself battling with are related to your relationship with your spouse or your children, or even your parents or in-laws, consider Couples or Marriage Counselling or Family Counselling , and if the problems arise from a bereavement or a trauma, try grief counselling or trauma counselling.

Shame dies when stories are told in safe spaces.
