Why do people seek a Psychologist for Individual Counselling?
Much information and research proved that therapies are the best-proven techniques to cure mental health. But why do people seek a Psychologist? Can't they turn to and talk to friends and families to resolve their issues? Because they have known the person for long and in-depth. How a third person as an unknown and unfamiliar with the situation help to cure or resolve the mental conflicts? These are common questions that arise in the minds of many people. Many men never want to seek help from a professional as their "masculine man" (ego) wants to resolve issues by themselves.
Many people are not even aware of their psychological problems. They have a feeling that something is going wrong with them. They feel that either they have an issue or others have an issue. But more than 50% of people do not have an idea whether they have a mental health issue or not. In-person or individual counselling helps them to solve their issues with their current and past life which directly affect future life. If you are struggling to share your inner feelings and your behavior reflect your emotions. Where you need to perform best but you can't because you can't deal with your emotions properly and by depressing them you feel choked up. You need to share about your life but privately without letting known to others.
There are 14 psychological disorders. You may have heard about them earlier as well and you may also visit more on my website about them. Individual counselling or Individual counselling helps you a lot to open the all suppressing emotions and to understand more about yourself. First of all, do not consider yourself insane or have feelings that "I have something wrong." Any disorders which lead to abnormal behavior are a result of unprocessed feelings or unaccepted behavior by others. So first of all YOU ARE NOT ALONE. But you do not understand your life. You have somewhere to sabotage yourself because others want to lead you. So, in-person or individual counselling is the best-proven session to understand more about yourself. To cure yourself from suffering mental disorders and live a happy life free from the burden.
I have mentioned 15 psychological disorders. However, there are other disorders also. But majorly these are common and most suffering areas of human beings. many people found with multiple disorders in individual counselling sessions. Because as a psychologist all attention is given to your life events and your cognitive pattern. Accordingly, sessions can be designed and measured at regular intervals. Individual counselling sessions help measure your thought pattern, and cognitive and behavioral patterns along with the outcome you received. But to reach the outcome or desired personal goal or to change behavior it is important to assess yourself. A Psychologist assesses you with the given issues you face in your current life. So, just have a look at the major 15 psychological disorders.
14 Psychological Disorders:
As a psychologist, I have deal with many clients. They have normal to severe issues but can be resolved in Individual counselling sessions. The most important part is self-efficacy. In Google, if you search Self-efficacy means an individual's belief in their capacity to act in the ways necessary to reach specific goals. In Individual counselling a psychologist helps you to understand your belief system. Your rules and assumptions about yourself and the world. A psychologist can help to modify or change your cognitive and behavioural pattern as per the desired mutual goal to achieve.
Benefits of Individual Counselling
The most important benefit of the Individual counselling session is to cure and heal through therapies. Mental disorders can be resolved in various other ways. But if one can have the patience to change self thoroughly and for a long time with a permanent effect individual counsellings are best.
Generally, people are more comfortable living life with a mental disorder rather they encounter it. Because they have a fear of leaving old methods of living and facing uncertainty. They are more comfortable in most uncomfort areas of life i.e. mental health. They accept their disorder rather than trigger it. Because it is more riskier to trigger the issue. In our quick-fix life we want results immediately and hence opting for therapies is quite difficult.
But those are Growth Seekers, Solution Oriented People and Learners always opt for therapies. Because they want to live a happy and clear life. They want to build something for them. They want to achieve their desired goals. In the further section, you may come across how Elite performers approach a Psychologist to improve their lives.
There are no distractions during the Individual counselling session, The person gets an in-depth understanding of the session, its effects, and how the entire session process will work
It creates a comfort level that you wouldn't achieve in a group counselling, gives the therapist the chance to cure the client as a whole, and notice subtle changes, progress, and potential issues.
During the Individual counselling sessions, the therapists are able to identify various body imbalances and risk factors that need attention in order to prevent injury.
This approach focuses on the root cause, and it takes time to determine, making group therapy sessions less effective due to time constraints.
Psychology and Philosophy with science are very interlinked. And we all humans always want to find solutions for the suffering. As you are reading this article looking for some answers to solve your query or problem. Here I am bound to give. As a Psychologist, I also have seen and experienced life with variety. And that is why I am in this profession to help and support your life circumstances. In Individual Counselling when we are dealing with issues we see all 360 degrees and verify the current outcomes.
Why you are facing what you are facing? If you are going through stressful relationships, marriages, family issues, divorce, separation, job issues, loss of job or unemployment, or even growth of life and business has stuck somewhere then Individual counselling is the best option. It is always no such that you have mental disorders but you have developed them because of life circumstances.
Typically an hour session helps you to understand so much about yourself. You can get through a new life quickly by challenging your belief system.
You may face a problem of validation from yourself and others. You are so confused that you do not have any idea why you have developed certain behaviours. You are facing rejections from everywhere. You find yourself that everyone suddenly raised a question against you and your nature. And you are overwhelmed with this outcome of your life. Do you feel I need validation from someone whether I am right or wrong? I have developed some mental disorders or not? Or maybe you found yourself so much into confusion and clarity is far more away from your life? Validation sometimes works miracles when your cognitive behaviour is affected badly.
Certain beliefs become hurdles in your life. Rather those beliefs give you happiness and steady growth you find you become a sufferer. As you can't decide what you should do? Here, an in-person session helps you a lot to understand your current life with the past life circumstances. Which badly affects your personal and work life. Individual sessions are confidential and in a safe environment, you get a space to express your all emotions.
You find the answers to all the questions you have. Also, many suppressed feelings and memories can be encountered. I have seen miracles happen in people's lives when they knew about their suppressed feelings. Then they know how to deal with those problems. They learn about the stress and tension areas of life and how to deal with it without affecting much.
Working Individual with a therapist provides the opportunity for self-exploration
Questions are asked, like “Who am I?” “What are my beliefs and values?” and “What is meaningful in my life?” and “Who are the people that make up my support system?” Counseling provides the opportunity for thoughtful reflection on this type of questions.
In therapy, individuals learn to identify boundaries
Often, a person’s issues arise from the inability to create physical and emotional boundaries. Recognizing where boundaries are needed is an important skill, and counselors can provide insight and help explore the questions that lead to appropriate boundaries.
Individual Counseling helps promote communication skills
In addition to boundaries, communication skills are vital to a person’s well-being. Assertiveness, emotional intelligence, empathy, active listening, confidence, and respect are all related to good communication skills, and one on one therapy can help with these.
Ego the defence mechanism studied by Anna Freud daughter of Sigmund Freud. They found that Ego and 10 defence mechanisms were specially elaborated by her father. Repression, regression, reaction formation, isolation, undoing, projection, introjection, turning against one's person, reversal into the opposite, and sublimation or displacement. We all are working with these 10 mechanisms. Because of that many people know about their mental disorders and behaviors they are reluctant to seek a therapist.
Individual Counselling is 100% confidential and provides a safe environment to encourage a person to speak about their blockages. Especially, for those who are reluctant to seek help from a professional. Motivational Interviewing is one of the best methods and the Socratic method proved best in providing the best results for reluctant clients. Whom we can consider reluctant.
1. Suggestion by Physician
You have complained about normal headaches or stomach trouble. And you see your physician and he has asked to visit a psychologist. Because he found there is no issue with Physics but the issue is with mental disorders. He found that the area of the problem is different than the actual one. Those clients were later assessed with medium to severe depressive disorders or mood swings. They also found Anxiety but somehow they managed it but developed a physical problem. Almost all physical problems are found with an error of mental disorders. Here, may a person be reluctant or may be curious to know about himself.
2. Suggested by Family
When a family finds something abnormal and wants their family member to seek help from a Psychologist. Here, in this case, Individual counselling is the best option. Until a person is comfortable with the Abnormal cognitive and behavioural issue. People are more comfortable with the disorders because they do not want to face a fear of uncertainty. And they are reluctant to openly discuss themselves in front of a psychologist. The defence mechanism works here to internalise their issue and resolve it by themselves or keep it at the corner of life. But in-person therapies have given miraculous results for those people. But points of self-efficacy and willpower come to play a big role.
3. Corporates provide Individual Counselling to Their Employees
Now the trend has changed. Earlier businessmen think of their profit only and not their employees. But now a leader always thinks of his team first. Because it is impossible to do great business without a great team. All corporates work on some great visions. They can achieve them when their team is also working on the same vision. But if there is any difference between them then? It impacts badly on the profit and goodwill of the company. It has proved that profit increases dramatically if leaders of businesses work on the self-development of their employees.
These sessions are for many employees in-person or many times it is in the form of Group Counselling, training and seminars. A well-developed employee can raise their standard of performance and get maximum job satisfaction and job promotions. Various companies arrange self-development employee training programs like Reliance, TATA, Nike, FedEx, Coca-Cola, Starbucks etc. See the section on Corporate Training Programs.
In the case of Reluctant clients In-person or Individual Counselling sessions are very helpful. But simultaneously their self-efficacy is also equivalently necessary.
People Seek Personal Growth and Self-Development
What is the relation between Personal Growth and an individual session with a Psychologist? While you look for an answer this may come in your search. Can a Psychologist help in self-growth and development? So the answer is YES. Because a Psychologist always works through the various parameters of your life. Your Childhood, Adolescence, your self-fulfilling prophecy, your dreams, goals, thoughts, beliefs, rules and regulations for the world, Assumptions for the world etc. Only the psychologist can understand your Brain pathways, Basal Gangline, Prefrontal Cotext and Amygdala pathways, Neurons etc. In short how your brain works with consciousness and unconsciousness. Dream Analysis, Psychotherapies and psychoanalysis work better which helps you to Grow happier in your life. Remember one thing:
1. To Be A Successful Business Person
Business has its challenges and stress. A leader who loves to get knowledge more to be successful always seeks Individual Counselling Sessions. They prefer a professional to help in measuring their growth, to get more clarity in business, to think clearly to perform like an Elite performer. They train themselves before they enter the battlefield so they hurt less and win more. A Psychologist typically helps an amateur businessperson to develop Goal setting for Goal Achievement. Goal Setting Psychology helps to achieve realistic goals and eliminate superficial ones. In-person sessions both the psychologist and client work on the same goal and measure the performance every week. A psychologist can understand obstacles and install various behaviours to achieve the desired goal with the help of therapies.
2. To Build An Image
Image is something about how you look at yourself and how others look at you. It is a vast difference. Say you have an internal story going on to become a writer but you do a job of hospital administrative staff. Where you spent most of the time in chaos and noise. You find at night that your creativity slowly diminishes in you and a dream is becoming a dream. Then an individual Counselling session will help you to understand how to do your duties but with the creativity of a writer. Sounds unusual. So here I am narrating one of the real-time counselling session experiences.
A few months back one of my clients came for an Individual Counselling. He always wanted to become a musician but was unable to. He ended his journey as a Doctor. He was frustrated since he has completed MBBS and MD. And he was so insecure that what he did with his life was wrong. He stopped treating people. And isolated him at home. His troubled relationship has also resulted from dissatisfaction and frustration. We ended up with many findings and finally, he got his resolution by musically treating people. He has built up an image of a Musical Doctor. It sounds so easy while you read but sessions are quite tricky. But it is a conviction of a client and his self-efficacy with the help of therapy achieved the desired goal.
3. To manage Stress at Job or Work
Job burnout is one of the key issues people are facing. Because they disconnected themselves from what they were and what they always wanted to be. They tried to procrastinate at work and were unable to achieve key performance. They live with the anxious state of fire from Job. Or they are always worried about their Boss's response to his work not being done. They want to leave their jobs and be independent but opt to stay because they are comfortable seeing daily most unsatisfactory days rather than being put in uncertain riskier zones.
That is not just a matter of positive thinking. Or positive psychology. But that is a matter of how they treat themselves. How they are treated earlier in their childhood and have some stubborn beliefs that stop them from overthinking. Attaching to an outcome and imagining the worst is the thinking process. In such a situation, only positive thinking can't help. But it is about thinking realistic and optimistic. Individual Counselling session helps to understand yourself. What satisfies you and how to overcome stress by Stress Inoculation Training Program.
3. Learn To Manage Emotions And Thoughts To Achieve Elite Performance
What do you do when you are anxious by thinking, imagine your failure? Of course terrible. Right! But at the same time, you have the burden of work and meet the deadline. What do you select? Either you select to sit having a coffee and overthink. Or you select a work to meet your deadline. But in both the selections you are not dealing with the emotions. But rather you opt to deal with overthinking but do not know how? In another case, you suppress your emotions and work. Later at the end of the day, you have either achieved self-satisfaction or guilt. Managing emotions is sometimes very crucial. Because we fear the object when it is not there. We were attached to the outcome and felt unfocused. In-person sessions also give you learning to manage emotions. Visualize your behaviour before you perform and more than that to achieve Elite Performance.
There are many other benefits of the Individual counselling sessions as well. Hope you are getting an answer to your query. If not look forward to more information on Psychology.
