Administered by Master’s level registered therapists:
Individual Therapy & Counselling
While in treatment at Trafalgar Addiction Treatment Centres, you can expect to receive frequent and comprehensive individual therapy with our accredited therapists.
Individual therapy is a way to help you:
- work through your problems
- develop effective strategies to confront difficult situations
- achieve recovery goals
You will receive 3 individual therapy sessions PER WEEK.
What makes our addiction programming unique and unparalleled is the fact that these individual sessions are administered by Master’s level, registered therapists.
When choosing a rehab, this is an important factor to consider because there is a difference between a Therapist and Addiction Counsellor.
The Difference 💡
What distinguishes their roles is the difference in education, training, experience and professional accountability.
A therapist enables you to tackle deep trauma and unresolved issues that fuel your addiction.
A counsellor helps you handle emotional distress during your recovery process with healthy habits on a daily/weekly basis.
How Individual Therapy Works
Our clinical team provides a supportive, confidential and non-judgmental environment.
They are there to help you identify and implement new strategies for dealing with specific life challenges.
It is important for your therapist to assess your situation and work with you to determine the best plan of action.
The first step is to uncover the problems
Once you and your therapist have an awareness of your issues, you can then begin to determine the root causes of your problems, such as concurrent disorders.
From there, your therapist will work with you to develop the insights and skills needed to cope with your life challenges.
Specific Objectives For Therapy
Your therapist is there to help you establish specific objectives for therapy. This will include a broad overall objective as well as more focused goals that may evolve from session to session.
Your therapist will also help you to:
- Identify coping strategies: Your therapist will work with you to develop or adapt coping strategies in line with your current situation. If the method you have used to cope with difficulties in the past has not worked, your therapist will guide you through the process in developing new, more effective coping strategies.
- Create Realistic Expectations: Psychological issues may stem from irrational expectations of yourself and others. This may lead to stress, anxiety and depression. By crystallizing these unrealistic expectations, your therapist may help provide fresh insights into your stress triggers.
- Identify personal strengths: During times of psychological crisis it is easy to dwell on your weaknesses. Your therapist will help you to identify your strengths and positive aspects about yourself, which helps to boost self-esteem.
