Individual therapy is a process through which clients work one-on-one with their therapists—in a safe, caring, and confidential environment—to explore their feelings, beliefs, or behaviours, work through challenging and important personal history, identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change, better understand themselves and others, set personal goals, and work toward desired change. People seek therapy for a variety of reasons, from coping with major life challenges or transitions,interpersonal conflict, childhood trauma, grief, managing depression or anxiety, or simply desiring personal growth and greater self-knowledge. A client and therapist generally work together for six to ten sessions under a Mental Health Care Plan depending on the client’s unique needs and personal goals for therapy. A client can access a Better Access Mental Health Care Plan from their Doctor which entitles them to a medicare rebate. Clients can also self refer and may be entitled to private health care rebates, depending on their level of cover. It is recommended that clients check to see if their private health care policy includes specific cover for a Counselling Psychologist.
