Individual counseling is a process through which users work one-on-one with a trained counselor in a safe, caring, and private environment—to discover their feelings, beliefs, or behaviors, work through challenging or important situations, identify aspects of their lives that they would like to modify, better understand themselves and others, set special goals, and work toward desired change.
Group therapy is a process through which a small group of individuals (generally six to ten) meet face-to-face with a trained group therapist to talk about a certain issue with which all of them is struggling such as grief/sorrow, anger management, ingestion disorders, living with chronic depression or unease, recovering from childhood sexual misuse, etc.
Family therapy is a form of treatment that seeks to reduce misery and conflict by improving the systems of interactions between family members. What differentiates family therapy from individual counseling is its view or outline, not how many people are present at the therapy session. This type of counseling views problems as patterns or systems that need adjusting, as opposed to viewing problems as existing in in the person, which is why family therapy is often referred to as a “strengths based treatment.”.
