One-on-One Therapy Is the Cornerstone of Mental Wellness
Most effective when issues of stress, grief, depression and other mental health disorders are disrupting life, personal therapy between a therapist and patient can be extremely effective in the healing process. The focus of interpersonal treatment is to better develop the communication habits of the patient. Specific problem areas in life are identified and the patient and therapist work together on new coping skills that will provide the patient with a more functional view and action plan. When a patient’s behavior is causing the problem – a behavior that is symptomatic of a mental health disorder – then this becomes the focus of treatment.
Guided therapy sessions can be enough to treat the issue in some cases but in others, medication may be needed as well depending upon the disorder, the specific symptoms, and the severity of those symptoms.
