Individual Psychotherapy

Most people think of individual therapy when they consider going into psychotherapy, and it is the most common form of psychotherapy. There is a broad range of theoretical frameworks when it comes to individual therapy including traditional talk therapy (ie: psychoanalysis or CBT); experiential therapies (ie: psychodrama, art therapy, music therapy, or equine therapy); or bottom-up/mind-body integrative therapies (ie: Somatic Experiencing, EMDR, ETT, and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy). Each approach has its strengths and limitations. Therapists trained in different therapies often have rather strong opinions regarding the modalities they like and those they don't. For example, therapists who lean towards bottom-up therapies argue that top-down therapies or more cognitive therapies such as CBT don't dive deep enough to get to the heart of the matter. Therapists who lean more towards a cognitive or top-down orientation in their work may argue that the bottom-up therapies are not accessible enough for the general population or take too long to provide relief to clients. However, the relationship between the client and therapist remains the most significant component in therapy. Research shows that regardless of the therapist's theoretical approach the success of therapy depends on the client-therapist relationship. At Windsong, we know therapy is not "one size fits all" and we encourage you to find a good fit with a therapist for your healing journey.
