Individual Therapy

Individual therapy is conducted between a therapist and patient to encourage change or enhance quality of life. People may turn to therapy for assistance with mental health problems or for issues that are difficult to handle alone.

Purpose of individual psychotherapy

Individual psychotherapy investigates how the patient’s personality responds to conflicts and defenses. The therapist helps in resolving issues by assisting you in gradually altering your thoughts and increases your awareness in how beliefs and feelings are connected to behaviors. Other therapies may be combined to help in treating emotional, mental, physical, and behavioral issues. The aim is to promote positive feelings, productive actions, and work on resolving symptoms that interfere with everyday life.

Several weeks of brief therapy can be used to resolve some issues. However, chronic or more complicated issues might need ongoing care. For noticeable development to be accomplished, it can occasionally take longer than a year. Even if treatment is unable to cure a problem, it can aid in the development of positive coping mechanisms.

Benefits of individual therapy

Identifying underlying causes of symptoms & managing them

Individual therapy gives you a safe space to explore your thoughts and emotional triggers that cause adverse symptoms. Recognizing your responses and outcomes can help you better manage and control your condition and related symptoms.

Providing coping strategies & facilitating lifestyle changes

Coping mechanisms include anything that gets you through challenging situations. Therapists are educated and trained to support the innate coping mechanisms that exist in everyone, and they will help you make positive changes in your life that are constructive.

Gaining a better understanding of yourself

By enhancing self-awareness, you can identify cognitive patterns and emotions that trigger undesirable actions. The opportunity for deep introspection can reveal deep-seated thoughts and fears and shift negative thinking.

Desde hace ańos la única molestia que tuve con Rudoy es que se me fue mi primera Doctora. A veces no es bueno pegarse mucho de las personas. Ya no quería otro Doctor. Unos meses después decidí volver y estoy igual que con mi 1ra Doctora, feliz y satisfecha. También me gusta la televisitas que ellos tienen disponible, en otra palabra a remoto, videos llamadas o audio llamadas. Ellos son rápidos y flexibles en tu horario de preferencia, para hacer o rehacer una cita son bien rápidos y eficientes. Ellos son bien profesionales y respetuosos en todo momentos. Grandemente recomiendo Rudoy. For so many years the only complain I had with Rudoy was that my first Doctor was gone. Sometimes isn’t good to get to attach to others. I refused to accept any other Doctors. But few months later I decided to come back try, I did get a great Doctor and I feel as much happy and stable and satisfied as before. I like the televisits, video calls or audio calls they have available. They are prompt to schedule or reschedule an appointment, they are very professional and respectful at all times. Highly recommend Rudoy Medical.

I had a great experience on my 1st appt with the psychiatrist Stacey Mitchell, she was comfortable to talk to and she was very professional and seemed interested in knowing why I was seeking your Dr's. I am pleased to have found your offices and your Drs.. I would definitely recommend Stacey and the group of professionals that work for Rudoy medical.
