Individual Therapy for Adults with Abusive & Toxic Families

The Benefits of Individual Therapy & how I can Help you

  • Individual therapy is one of the most popular methods of seeing a therapist about couples and group therapy. Individual therapy involves one client and a qualified therapist, such as myself  working online or in some cases, face to face. Therapy with me would help you to meet your goals around difficulties such as self-esteem issues, mental health struggles, addiction, relationship issues etc. 

 

Benefits of Individual Therapy

There are many benefits to individual therapy, especially if you experienced or still experience toxic parents. It includes:

  • Improving your communication skills
  • Creating lasting relationships
  • Learning healthy coping skills
  • Understanding yourself more
  • Receiving close attention from another human that hears and understands you
  • helping you to overcome obstacles and traumas 
  • Improving your self-esteem

 

How can I benefit from Individual Therapy with you?

  • You don’t need to wait untill you have reached rock bottom or have serious mental health issues to have therapy. In fact, most people in the western world would benefit from therapy simply due to how we live our lives in this modern day. 
  • Therapy would help you understand the underlying causes behind some of the negative behaviour patterns in your life and create new patterns that work better for you. 
  • Also, you don’t always need long-term therapy, even just a few short weeks can have a positive effect. 
  • It is not about blaming your parents, spouse, or adult children here, it is more to do with understanding yourself more but a large proportion of that would have been to do with your upbringing.

 

Trauma-Informed Therapy

To me, trauma in itself isn’t just about the things that happened, it is about the life you experienced that shaped who you are. It is also about the life that you are living now that can contribute to how you are feeling.

 

How I can work with you

1. Providing a Safe Space – Creating a safe and confidential environment for you to express your experiences and feelings without feeling judged.

2.Learning how to establish and maintain healthy boundaries with the toxic family member to protect your emotional well-being.

3. Exploring and developing coping mechanisms to deal with stress, anxiety, or emotional challenges caused by the toxic family member.

4. Analyzing and understanding the broader family dynamics that contribute to the toxicity, helping you to gain insights into patterns of behavior.

5. Fostering a sense of empowerment by helping you to recognize their agency and control in the face of toxicity.

6. Addressing any past trauma caused by the toxic family member and working towards healing and resolution.

7. Supporting the development of emotional resilience to better cope with challenges arising from the toxic family member.

8. Planning for the Future – Collaborating on future plans and strategies to navigate ongoing interactions with the toxic family member, or considering the possibility of reducing contact if necessary.

 

The approach may vary based on your circumstances, and I will tailor my methods to best address the specific needs and your goals.
