PTSD Therapist in Hermosa Beach

What is Personal Individual Therapy for PTSD?

Personal individual therapy is a therapy that is focused on a one-on-one approach between the PTSD patient and the therapist. This approach enhances the effectiveness of the treatment as it gives room for tailoring to suit the PTSD patient’s need and projected treatment goal. This therapy also provides more confidentiality as it involves just the therapist and the patient.

Types of Personal Individual Therapy

The types of personal individual therapy include:

  • Psychoanalysis: This treatment is used for a long-term approach to deep psychological problems. This therapy helps the patient identify the cause of their traumas and phobias.  
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): This therapy is used to modify and develop positive responses regarding negative thought patterns.

Procedure of Personal Individual Therapy

Personal Individual Therapy generally involves sitting with a therapist and discussing problems. This sit-down helps the therapist aid the patient in finding the cause of their problems and the best possible solutions to help them improve their condition.

Duration of Personal Individual Therapy

Each session of therapy is expected to last up to an hour. The number of sessions required depends on the severity, the response to the applied method, and treatment progress. So it can last from as short as a few weeks to as long as months and even years.
