3 Top Reasons to Consider Individual Therapy

Self-care has become a hot topic in today’s world for good reason – it’s important to take care of yourself. And while hobbies, massages, and hot baths are all great ways to help make it happen, taking care of yourself should go deeper. It should involve digging into things that are holding you back, impacting your emotional health, and interfering with your life. Below, the team at Cook Counseling and Consulting of Columbus and Pataskala, OH, shares a few reasons why individual therapy should be an integral part of your self-care plan.

1. It’s All About You and Your Needs

It’s easy to get caught up in what everyone else needs, such as your kids, your boss, or a loved one who needs a lot of care. In fact, one of the reasons self-care has become such a hot topic is that we tend to stay focused on everyone else.

However, individual therapy is all about you. While discussing the burdens on your shoulders can be part of your therapy experience, it will be done so in a way that keeps the focus on you. Your mental health and well-being are the goal. 

2. It Provides a Safe Space

It can often be hard to talk to friends and loved ones about many things, typically due to fear of judgment or not wanting to hurt someone’s feelings. Therapy, however, provides a space where you can talk freely and openly without anyone discovering what you talk about. Your therapist is there to listen and help you become the best version of yourself, not be judgmental. Additionally, as your therapist isn’t tied to you in the same way friends and loved ones are, it can be much easier to open up.

3. It Helps You Get What You Need

People face challenges and various issues every day, including the loss of loved ones, career problems, marital issues, PTSD, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, substance abuse, and more. Therapy is highly personalized to your specific needs. Once those needs are determined and established, you and your therapist will work together to help you overcome them.
