Individual therapy involves regular meetings with a therapist, usually on a weekly basis. But beyond that, therapy is a time that’s just for you. A place where you can come and be yourself—whatever that self looks like at any given time. You don’t have to hold it together or pretend to be someone or something that you’re not. The uniqueness of the therapeutic relationship provides a space for you to get perspective and feedback that you may not get anywhere else.
Therapy is most beneficial when you are an active participant. A good portion of the work of therapy happens outside of sessions. Meaning, you take time to think through what comes up for you, do homework assignments (i.e. journal exercises, reading, etc.), and take what you learn in session back into your life.
