Individual Psychotherapy is a very intricate concept to explain as the process differs from client to client and from one therapeutic intervention to the next. This being said however, Individual Therapy is characterised by a face to face interaction between client and Psychologist where the client is experiencing some form of psychological discomfort, distress or dissatisfaction. During this interaction the focus is generally on gaining a clear and thorough understanding of the client’s unique presenting complaint and the maintaining behavioural elements related to this. These elements are then dealt with in a goal-directed manner that is logical, tangible, clear and systematic. Through this process the client is able to relieve distress, achieve goals and uphold a satisfying lifestyle on a long term basis.
