How We help

Overview

Individual counseling, which is also referred to as psychotherapy, talk therapy, or treatment, is a process in which our clients work one-on-one with a trained BGH mental health therapist in an environment that is safe, caring, and confidential. Clients who participate in individual counseling may experience a variety of benefits. 

You will be able to better understand yourself and others, set personal goals, and work toward the desired change when you participate in counseling. This allows you to explore your feelings, beliefs, and behaviors; work through difficult or influential memories; identify aspects of your life that you would like to change; and identify aspects of your life that you would like to change.

Frequently Asked Individual Therapy Questions

The cost of therapy might range anywhere from $65 to more than $250 per hour. You  should plan on spending between $100 and $200 for each session. The following are some of the potential elements that can influence the cost of therapy:

  • The qualifications of the therapist. Generally speaking, higher rates are charged by highly qualified and very experienced therapists.
  • The setting in which therapy is provided.
  • Insurance coverage. People who have insurance that covers their therapy typically have lower out-of-pocket costs.
  • Time allotted for each individual therapy session.
  • The longer the session, in general, the higher the price that the client will pay.
  • Specialization. When a therapist is an expert in a highly specialized field or when treating an unusual or complex ailment, the cost of therapy is likely to be significantly higher.

If you and a BGH clinician come to the conclusion that a single session or short-term individual counseling is the treatment plan that will best suit your requirements, then you will be offered the first available appointment that is compatible with your schedule. It is possible that the amount of time you have to wait before you can schedule your first meeting will rise if you have specific counselor preferences. This initial consultation will typically be planned anywhere from a few days to a few weeks in advance. (It is important that you make our staff aware if you are in immediate need of assistance so that we can link you with the right BGH services as soon as possible.)

When you are booking your appointment, be sure to bear in mind that the overall amount of time required is roughly 90 minutes. This includes the time needed to complete documents on the computer, the actual treatment session, and the time needed to schedule follow-up visits.

Although the majority of clinical psychologists are focused on providing treatment, many of them also draw from academic literature and psychological research for their work. They operate in a manner quite similar to that of medical doctors, who base their treatment decisions on findings from medical research. Nevertheless, psychologists are not allowed to write prescriptions for drugs.

In particular, the education and training of psychologists are guided by the research conducted in the field of behavioral science. This research provides insights into the ways in which people who have mental health disorders react to stress and other external variables. In addition, clinically-based treatments are a part of behavioral science.

The treatment is the primary emphasis of counseling and psychotherapy as well. On the other hand, they frequently rely more on philosophical and rhetorical theories, in addition to clinical observations made over extended periods of time, than they do on research.

When put into practice, this indicates that a psychologist may have a more comprehensive understanding of the science and academic literature of psychology as a basis for their treatment.
