How Can Individual Therapy Help You Heal from Addiction?
Individual therapy can be a powerful tool for treating addiction. It is an incredibly effective way to develop an understanding of the underlying issues driving your substance use and to gain insight into how to manage cravings, triggers, and difficult emotions. With individual therapy, you will have a safe and supportive space to work through these issues without judgement or criticism, allowing you to learn techniques that are specific to your needs.
Individual counselling can also help you develop a better understanding of yourself and learn how to manage your stress in healthy ways. It allows you to explore underlying issues contributing to your addiction, such as depression, anxiety or trauma. Through individual therapy, you will gain the ability to recognise triggers and manage them more effectively. You will also gain insight into how to identify and cope with difficult emotions in healthier ways, which can help prevent relapse.

Challenging the Stigma Surrounding Mental Health
The stigma surrounding mental health can be a significant barrier to seeking help and treatment. All too often, those struggling with addiction or mental health issues feel isolated and ashamed of their experiences, which can prevent them from reaching out for the help they need. That’s why we are committed to challenging this stigma by providing a safe space in which you can openly discuss your feelings without fear of judgement.
During our confidential individual therapy sessions, regardless if online or in-person, you can freely discuss your struggles without fear of stigma or judgement. Our compassionate team will provide you with the emotional support, unconditional acceptance and understanding that you need in order to move forward on your journey towards healing.
Regardless of what some might tell you, seek therapy today. We strongly recommend starting your talking therapies as soon as you are mentally ready to begin. Waiting might affect your drive and resolve, stalling your progress.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
CBT is a goal-oriented approach that helps examine how your thoughts, feelings and behaviours interact with one another. It provides a structured approach to identifying and challenging unhelpful patterns of thinking, while helping you develop healthier coping skills and behaviours.
Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)
DBT is an extension of CBT that focuses on teaching skills required to manage distress, regulate emotions, and improve interpersonal relationships.
During Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is a type of therapy used to help you process memories and reduce symptoms of distress. It focuses on using bilateral stimulation, such as eye movements or tapping, to help you access the emotions associated with your past experiences in a safe and supported manner.
This style of therapy is designed to help you identify their strengths and internal motivations for change. Our therapist will work with you to set achievable goals and create a plan for achieving them.
The 12 Steps have been around for many years, with substance abuse clients reaping many benefits from the lessons learnt during these sessions.
This type of therapy helps process emotions and learn how to manage them in healthy ways. It also provides an opportunity to gain insight into how your past experiences may be contributing to your current behaviours.
The Best Uses for Individual Therapy
Each therapy session will be tailored to meet your individual needs, allowing you to receive the best possible care. Individual counselling is ideal for seeking professional advice for any of the following concerns which often cause addiction and substance use disorders:
- Stress Management: Learning how to manage stress in healthy ways is essential for managing the cravings associated with addiction. Our individual sessions can provide you with the tools and skills needed to help you better cope with life’s challenges more effectively.
- Anxiety: Anxiety can be a huge contributing factor to substance use disorders, so learning how to manage it is key. Through our individual therapy sessions, we will help you identify triggers and develop healthier coping strategies.
- Depression: Depression is a common mental health issue that can be difficult to manage. Through our individual sessions, you can learn how to identify and address the underlying causes of depression and develop better strategies for managing it in your life.
- Untreated Childhood Trauma: Our individual sessions will provide you with an opportunity to safely process past traumas and learn how to effectively manage them in the future.
Find Out if Outpatient Therapy Is Right for You
If you are struggling with low self-esteem, instability, or lack of motivation, our individual therapy sessions will provide you with the tools and support needed to help you make positive life changes. While we do not provide medical or psychiatric services, we can help you handle the stress related to the harmful side effects of medical conditions and different types of stressful events.
Our mental health professionals will use the power of talking treatment to help you resolve difficult personal circumstances by utilising a personalised treatment plan which focuses on personal growth and individual counselling which can also help manage moderate depression to severe clinical depression.
If you need any medical treatments, we can refer you to a partnering residential facility which can provide clinical observations and help with your physical health. This is the best course of action for some of our clients, and they have succeeded in achieving long-term sobriety through this service.
Individual and Group Therapy for Addiction
CATCH Recovery utilises both individual and group therapies because we believe this combination provides the ideal stimuli and strategies for a successful recovery.
Individual therapy is a great way to get the personalised help you need from a qualified therapist, but it’s only one piece of the puzzle. Group therapy provides an opportunity for you to interact with others who are in similar situations and learn from their experiences. It can be a powerful source of encouragement and accountability as you move towards lasting recovery.
At CATCH Recovery, our group sessions provide an open, safe and supportive environment for sharing thoughts and feelings related to your addiction. If you are ready to begin anew, to heal and to mend your relationships, contact us now. We will begin your treatment with a free screening and then work together to create the best working strategy for battling your condition and finding solutions to your mental health problems and removing any harmful compulsions from your life.
