Individual therapy is beneficial in the treatment of various mental health conditions. You can find healing from everything from anxiety disorders, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, mood disorders, personality disorders, substance use disorders (SUDs), and other emotional health concerns in one-on-one therapy.
Therapy helps you heal from past experiences that may have manifested as mental health disorders. Additionally, it is also powerful if you would like to learn more about yourself, heal from past experiences you may not know are keeping you stuck, and increase your ability to connect with yourself and others.
The Continual Process of Self-Discovery
As a human, you are in a process of self-discovery as you become more of who you are. Self-discovery also requires you to un-become things you are not. These are things you may have had to become to keep yourself safe and protected from things that threatened your sense of belonging, love, and acceptance.
Regardless of whether you have a diagnosed mental health condition, therapy can effectively support you in your process of self-discovery. Working with a therapist provides you a space to come as you are, get curious about life, and have blindspots revealed to you by a non-judgemental third party who helps you see things you may not have been able to before.
Healing From Past Experiences
If you are human, you have probably experienced wounding and trauma in your life and relationships. In some way, shape, or form, regardless of how “normal” you feel your childhood and life have been up to now, hardship is part of life. Your earliest memories and relationships beginning in childhood can impact the way you relate to yourself and others.
Therapy can allow you to heal from past experiences, trauma, and relationships that have negatively affected you. Until you work toward healing, emotional scars can interfere with your capacity to feel connected and present.
Connecting With Others
Receiving compassionate and unconditional support and care from a therapist can teach you to extend these virtues to yourself. Not only that, it can help you give others the same as well. When you care for yourself through the lens of compassion, you can provide love and support to others.
Whether your goal is to heal a diagnosed mental health condition, shift limiting beliefs, or learn more about yourself, therapy is the perfect environment in which to do so. Being supported unconditionally, being witnessed in your vulnerability, and having someone to reflect on potential blindspots is healing.
Individual therapy is a powerful space to unlearn old patterns, discover new parts of yourself, and get curious about life itself. From healing diagnosed mental health concerns, to having a non-judgemental third party witness you in your vulnerability, to working toward specific goals you have, individual therapy can help. At Avalon Malibu, we recognize how challenging it can be to access the growth and change you desire when you don’t have support. If you are ready to shift limiting beliefs and heal from past experiences, call Avalon Malibu at (844) 857-5992.
