Counseling - Psychotherapy

Individual Adult Therapies

  Individual therapy is a unique journey of self-awareness. Psychotherapist and healer, we treat together the symptoms (anxiety, depression, panic attacks, phobias, eating disorders) and look for their causes. We also manage difficult emotional states such as mourning, anger, divorce, labor and economic uncertainty, major changes in life. Through deeper understanding of ourselves, we can make life lighter and richer. Psychotherapy is a first supportive process, which can then be explored. A person usually seeks psychotherapeutic assistance when he or she has difficulty coping with the demands of everyday life when he or she feels or suffers from a symptom. We would say that he is in a period of his life in which he feels that the ways in which he has experienced the difficulties so far seems inadequate. On the other hand, one can start psychotherapy with only self-knowledge.

  In psychotherapy one can express his feelings in a safe place, feel acceptable, come in contact with older experiences and feelings that can be painful and forgotten or look insignificant, but often shape their personality and terms adult life.

  Exploring the history so far within the psychotherapeutic framework is a unique experience that helps the individual to understand himself to respect his needs and desires, to improve his or her relationships and to move forward with life lighter but richer load.

The reasons that lead people to visit a psychologist are many and different between them. For example :

  • Stress, Panic attacks.
  • Depression disorders.
  • Fears, Ideas.
  • Anger Management.
  • Problems of Human Relations - Conflicts.
  • Work Issues.
  • Lack of confidence.
  • Self-Knowledge - Personal Development.
  • Diet & Symptoms.
  • Sexual Disorders.
  • Mental Trauma.
  • Psychosomatic Health Issues.

Child Treatment

1. Individual child sessions

  The reasons that usually lead parents to bring their children to a psychologist's office may be many and different from each other. For example:

  • Difficulty adapting to school.
  • Separation anxiety.
  • Distraction.
  • Difficulty in interpersonal relationships.
  • Aggressiveness.
  • Brotherhood jealousy, change in the child's life after the birth of another child.
  • Low self-esteem, anxiety.
  • Changes in marital status (parent divorce, mourning, etc.).
  • Diseases of children or their parents.
  • Traumatic events.

  Psychotherapy is intended to help children cope with the difficulties of everyday life, build on their abilities, build the core of themselves and become cheerful and creative.

  Through the personal relationship they develop with the therapist, the symbolic play, the visual creations and the stability of the meetings at a specific place and time every week, children learn to express and process their feelings and overcome the difficulties. Together with a consistent parent counseling, the problems can be overcome and relationships within the family become harmonious again.

2. Children's groups

  Group therapies for children are primarily aimed at children with difficulties in interpersonal relationships, lack of delineation, intense competition, low self-esteem, difficulty in taking initiative and role in home or school.

  Contact with conversations in a structured context where activities and rules are defined by an adult seems to be particularly effective and directly helps children to get rid of the issues that make it difficult.

Indicatively, I mention some ways and issues of building the game to a group of children :

  • Using a puppet and introducing the concepts of emotions: Each child uses the marionette as a "mediator", between him and the others, to him and the therapist, and thus gives him the opportunity to talk about how he feels and how associated with an event of his or her day or week.

  • Solving problems or conflicting experiences using puppet theater or symbolic games. The game can evolve both among the members of the team and with the participation of the therapist who needs to create corrective experiences or to show through the symbolic game the emotions that emerge.

  • Using books. Often through children's books we can use topics for discussion or role play, such as what it means to be bad, to grow up, to have desires, and so on.

  • Thematic sessions on sadness, loss and anger in relation to the physical, emotional or physical abandonment of children.

  • Sessions on the concepts of fear, with role-playing, using representational forms of art, with group paintings or fairy craftwork on what scares us.
