Single Session Psychotherapy: Dr. Jay Granat Develops A New Model For Efficient Counseling

What’s Your Problem?

As a result of changing health care laws, rising insurance payments, bigger copayment, higher deductibles and a population with demanding time schedules, an increasing number of Americans in need of counseling or psychotherapy are seeking out short term and efficient forms of mental health treatment.

Ongoing psychoanalysis where a person sees his or her therapist three or four times a week for many years, is no longer useful, practical or affordable for most people.

Moreover, many insurance companies and managed care companies will not pay for this kind of long term therapy.

While some patients need and can benefit from long term counseling, some social scientists have raised serious questions about the value and efficacy of traditional analysis.

Single Session Psychotherapy
Short Term Counseling

Fortunately, the mental health profession has responded to the need for short term treatment modalities.

And now, may people can sort out life’s emotional and psychological problems in just a few sessions.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy are examples of these modern forms of counseling and psychotherapy.

Moreover, there is a lot of evidence of people being helped with one session or with several sessions. For example, pastoral counselors often help people in one meeting. University counseling centers treat many students in approximately three sessions. Psychologists, psychiatrists, psychotherapists and counselors frequently demonstrate the effectiveness of single session therapy when they demonstrate to colleagues at a conference or training seminar.
And many people feel better after one conversation with a wise and understanding coach, teacher, parent or relative

How Your Dreams Can Solve Your Problems
And Save You Time, Energy And Money

“After twenty-six years in practice, I have recently developed a new therapy model which is a blend of hypnosis, self-hypnosis, dream therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy.

Dreams, daydreams, positive fantasies and the unconscious mind can be very
valuable in helping a person to solve a wide range of problems.

I originally developed this method while working with athletes who came to see to improve their performance in sports.

However, I discovered that this same model was useful in treating anxiety, depression, stress, relationship problems, marital problems, career issues and weight control.

Interestingly, while there is not one cure for every ill, a wide range of patients liked the simplicity of this approach and the fact that this model was easy to understand, easy to implement and easy to go back to when people face another challenge or crisis.

One man, an engineer who was reluctant to come for therapy, felt that this approach changed his entire life in a short period of time.

There are two simple diagrams that allow me to explain this approach in just a few minutes.

Best of all, after a ninety minute session, many people leave my office with the ability to get their life onto a better path, says Dr. Granat.
