The Benefits of Individual Counseling
It is unfortunate how many people associated individual counseling with an illness. While it is often used to address mental illness or substance addiction, individual counseling offers many benefits to help people in all walks of life to cope with things like stress, family, emotions, and more.

Our counselors have seen great success with individual counseling efforts. There are many benefits to our program, and our clients can learn the following:
Confronting your issues with honesty allows you the clarity to understand their complexities, which will ultimately allow you to take responsibility for your life and your actions. Whether you’re struggling with a gambling addiction, substance abuse, eating disorder, or relationship issues, our counselors provide a safe and comfortable environment for you to explore such issues and learn how to handle them.
Develop a Fresh Perspective
Individual therapy gives you the chance to explore conscious or subconscious habits, emotions, and behaviors that could be causing you harm, such as depression, anxiety, self-criticism, substance abuse, negative relationships, and more. Together your counselor can help you establish a fresh perspective to understand those behaviors that are not positively serving you.
Improve Coping Mechanisms
Working one on one with a counselor can help you learn positive coping mechanisms to deal with stresses of daily life. Improving coping mechanisms can lead to changes in all aspects of life including work, family, relationships, and health.
Therapy is not just for those with mental illness. Therapy is beneficial for everyone. Counseling of Southwest Florida offers individual therapy in Naples, centered around family, parenting, trauma focused, grief and loss, anger management and more. Call today to learn more.
