Individual psychotherapy is a meeting of two people – the one with a desire for personal development and an accompanying specialist. At a beginning of a psychotherapy, one has very specific reasons, as well as unique needs and expectations. The job of the specialists is to provide an adequate knowledge, experience and skills for various, specific needs of a person that came to a therapy. The work of those two people – two sides of a dialogue – may bring out the necessary change and development.
Normally and naturally, people are in a constant changing process. Not only one is changing – there is also a change found in everything around and, of course, in his/her relations with others. The relationship according to one persons perspective as well as the relationship itself, is usually a difficult process but on the other hand – very attractive to work with. The very possibility to experience any change and personal growth is what actually brings us together in relationships in the first place.
What do teenagers actually need? It is a common question asked by frustrated parents who, if they had known, would surely provide any needed answer. Unfortunately, the answer is not that easy mostly because even teenagers themselves don’t know their true desires. Adolescence is a time of an intensive search.
Our experience shows that some people need psychological support, diagnosis and personal development while there is a distance issue between them and therapists due to lack of specialists in their hometown or a distant place of work of a recommended specialist.
