Catholic Family Services (CFS) provides individual counseling. During difficult times an objective, professionally trained therapist can be of great assistance in offering support, guidance and feedback to help people navigate through their options. Individual therapy is based on one-to-one interaction between client and therapist. It is the most common and intimate type of therapy and may be used in combination with other approaches such as couples therapy or group therapy. Some prefer individual therapy because they feel they can delve deeper into their issues than with group therapy. They may also prefer a therapist’s undivided attention, or be uncomfortable talking about sensitive issues in a group.
People seek out therapy for a wide variety of reasons including life changes, losses, psychological injury, or for a disorder such as anxiety or depression. Some simply want the supportive environment of an unbiased third party, while others want help in finding direction in life.
