One on one psychotherapy is an important part of rehab treatment at Castle Craig. Through private, one-on-one sessions the specialist addiction therapist and patient speak in complete privacy. Our therapists are trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET) which means they can explore and address the underlying issues around the addiction on a case-by-case basis, leading to effective and sustained recovery.
What Individual Sessions Achieve
The focal therapist guides the sessions which aim to:
- Address deep-rooted personal issues e.g. trauma, grief, abuse;
- Motivate the patient to achieve and maintain abstinence;
- Change attitudes and behaviours that may lead to relapse;
- Maximise insight into the addiction;
- Address the impact addiction has had on the patient’s life.
The sessions follow a clear structure, in line with the treatment programme directed by our Consultant Psychiatrist, and are a key part of the patient’s personal treatment plan. Sessions take place twice weekly.
How Individual Rehab Therapy Works
Individual therapy gives patients the chance to speak in complete privacy and confidentiality with a specialist therapist. Our therapists accredited with BACP (British Association For Counselling And Psychotherapy) and COSCA (Counselling and Psychotherapy Scotland). Some have (are working towards) further accreditations such as university Masters degrees. Our addictions therapists are trained to use a discreet and sensitive approach with patients, encouraging them to open up about matters they may find difficult to share within a group setting.
We have over 30 years of experience in the field of addictions. Our dedicated therapy team are COSCA or BACP accredited or working towards their accreditations. Membership of COSCA and BACP demonstrates that therapists have met robust standards in relation to education, training, current practice and personal behaviour.
