Individual counseling is the process in which you can hear yourself talk and not have to be in the shower to do so. Sigmund Freud discovered the "talking cure" while developing the art of psychotherapy. His clients seem to feel better after they were given time to just vent and cathart their ideas, feelings and thoughts. Free association is the process in which you just say whatever is on your mind. It can clear your mind and free you of the tension and conflict that gets created by holding onto unwanted thoughts and feelings.
Henry David Thoreau said "it takes two people to tell the truth one to tell it and one to listen."
Although our therapists do give clients feedback they support your experience of hearing your own ideas, defensive statements and vulnerable sighs that create "aha moments" which can help you change and/or accept your life.
