To categorise psychotherapy largely, it can be summarised into individual therapy, couple therapy, group therapy and family therapy
Individual therapy is for clients who wish to address their patterns of thinkings freely. In response, the counsellor can offer a non-judgemental perspective on the issue to help them come to better terms with those feelings.
Couple therapy offers help for clients who may be facing relationship struggles due to changes in a life circumstance, feeling more distant, frequent arguments, problems controlling jealousy or anger or recovering from affairs etc. Counsellors suggest ways to rebuild communication and conflict resolution skills for a more satisfying relationship on both sides.
Group therapy is intended for those who want to improve their ability to interact and handle problems in a group situation. By each member of the group addressing their interpersonal problems and interacting with each other and the therapist, the group will be able to grow not just collectively but as individuals.
Family therapy focuses on building a healthier family relationship through interactions and addressing the psychological situation of each family member. The therapist can influence conversations, taking in the social, financial, cultural and religious context of the family to offer the most beneficial ways each member can support each other.
In regards to couple or family therapy, as a counsellor who has trained in the US, apart from Japanese clients, Yuka specialises in offering psychotherapy sessions for international couples or families as well. (eg. a Japanese client with a Singaporean partner)
