The medical providers at Queens Consultation Center, LLC in Rego Park, NY want you to feel completely comfortable before you begin any individual psychotherapy.
The purpose of individual psychotherapy is to help you work through issues or problems. Psychotherapists use scientific techniques to help you work through your problems and develop healthier habits.
During your first session with a Rego Park, NY therapist, your therapist will ask you questions that will enable them to get to know you and determine what problems are, what issues you need assistance with and what your short and long-term goals for therapy are. They'll also use this information to determine the best techniques to help you meet your goals.
Therapists will teach you skills and techniques to help you overcome phobias or to help you solve particular problems. They may even give you "homework" to complete in between sessions to help move you in the right direction. Homework can include things such as making lists to organize your thoughts and goals, reading articles or books, or practicing new skills that you've reviewed during your sessions.
Individual psychotherapy is actually a collaborative experience between you and your therapist. To get the most out of your individual psychotherapy, you'll need to communicate with your therapist and be willing to really be open and honest with them. It will be essential for you to have an open mind and to complete the techniques, skills, and work outside of the sessions that they recommend. If there is something preventing you from doing those things, communicating whatever is holding you back will be essential to your progress forward in therapy.
You should realize that individual psychotherapy is not a magical solution to all of your problems and issues, but it can help you work through anything that is causing strife in your emotions and your life and it can be a great way to learn techniques that can help you manage stressful and traumatic situations that occur in your life in the future.
