Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is a collaborative process based on the relationship between the individual and the psychologist. It is based on dialogue, it provides a supportive environment that allows you to talk openly with someone who has an objective, neutral and non-judgmental position.

Is a form of therapeutic intervention consisted of regular sessions – meetings with a trained therapist, for a shorter or longer period, depending on the request and the particular characteristics of the patient. Both parties are actively involved in this effort, but the main person is the treated as the whole therapeutic effort concerns their own life.

With the help of the therapist, the concerned person can see what lies beneath the surface – the non-obvious. They explore unknown aspects of themselves, process experiences that have defined their personal evolution and discover the root causes of the issues that concern them.

The processing of the material which rises and its connection with the present works therapeutically in the emotional, mental and physical level. It also brings about a restructuring of the personality of the analysed individual and their attitude towards life. The relationship that the individual has with their own self is restored: their self-esteem, self-respect, self-confidence. The deep self-knowledge they acquire makes them much more powerful, capable of facing adversity and everyday problems in a more dispassionate and realistic way. Moreover, it helps them have a better relationship with other people.

Once the process is completed they acquire new skills so that they can better meet the challenges that will arise in the future.
