Individual therapy benefits – CBT Kenya

Individual therapy is a joint process between a therapist and a person in therapy. Common goals of therapy can be to inspire change or improve quality of life. People may seek therapy for help with issues that are hard to face alone. Individual therapy is also called therapy, psychotherapy, psychosocial therapy, talk therapy, and counseling.

Therapy can help people overcome obstacles to their well-being. It can increase positive feelings, such as compassion and self-esteem. People in therapy can learn skills for handling difficult situations, making healthy decisions, and reaching goals. Many find they enjoy the therapeutic journey of becoming more self-aware. Some people even go to ongoing therapy for self-growth.

Benefits Of Individual Therapy

  • Improved communication skills. When you sit down with our therapist you are the sole focus. You are encouraged to speak freely during your time together and after a few visits, you may find yourself being able to easily speak your mind. Therapy takes practice. It doesn’t come naturally to all of us. However, it is the continued practice that ultimately makes us better communicators.
  • Feelings of empowerment and confidence. Engaging in therapy and going regularly can be life-changing. Just the act of sharing your thoughts out loud with our therapists can result in you feeling like an improved version of yourself. The rest that follows is like a domino effect. Speaking about your problems leads to feeling more confident in yourself. This then leads to you treating those around you better.
  • New coping mechanisms. Coping mechanisms are typically used by individuals when they’re faced with a situation that is stressful or traumatic. They are helpful tips or tricks that work to calm you down. A tailored therapy experience can provide you with a collection of new coping mechanisms. For example, you could learn breathing techniques, meditation, or problem-solving skills.
  • Expanded support network. Once you begin therapy, your overall support network grows in size. You may have close friends or family members to confide in but you also have our therapists as well. If you choose to also participate in group therapy, you’ve got the people that attend those sessions.

Need help?

Seeking therapy is a major step for a lot of people. It can be incredibly intimidating and even the thought of talking about mental health is enough to prevent many from ever trying therapy. If you are someone who is nervous to start therapy and you’d like a more private, one-on-one experience, individual therapy may be the right choice for you.

Getting professional help does not mean you are weak or broken. It’s choosing to get better and take care of yourself. CBT-Kenya (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy-Kenya) counseling center offers counseling and therapy sessions for persons from all walks of life. We focus on helping clients gain insight into themselves by going through a healing process.
