Individual therapy can be helpful for a variety of life's challenges: to improve relationships, handle life changes, deal with stress or anxiety, provide help when feeling down or depressed, or cope with the aftereffects of traumatic events in one's life.
The form of therapy can vary greatly depending on what you are seeking.
Short term therapy can include focusing on thoughts and behaviors that are troublesome, learning more effective ways to deal with life stresses, or learning helpful strategies to improve your relationships. Many find having some exclusive time to reflect with an outside dedicated observer to be invaluable.
Longer term therapy, for those who are interested, can help you to understand yourself better and improve quality of life overall. Longer term therapy is also often appropriate for those who have experienced a lot of trauma in their lives.
Therapy always works best when it is a collaborative effort between therapist and client, so each person's experience in therapy is different.
