Psychological treatment for adults

Therapy / Psychotherapy

A desire for self-understanding and personal liberation

What makes us take that step to consult a psychologist? The reasons are many and varied (and everyone has their own story) however, in general, the motivating factors are negative feelings or thoughts and being overwhelmed or unable to cope alone with life’s difficulties.

Whatever the reason behind this feeling of unhappiness or discontent, the extent of it and the way it is expressed, therapy can help to understand it, make sense of what is causing the suffering and untangle the knots. From here it is possible to move forward, to find contentment and to give meaning to our lives.

Parental Guidance

Evolving into parenthood

Through our work, we often hear parents expressing their dismay that “there’s no book to teach you how to be a parent”. Being a parent is not always an easy task and every parent has their moments of self-doubt.

How can individuals’ needs be met fairly within the family dynamic? How can we give our children the skills they need to flourish? How can we provide clear and consistent discipline? How can we manage our childrens’ moods along with our own responses? There are so many questions that parents have to face and they are often left not knowing which way to turn.

Psychological treatment for children and adolescents

Therapy / Psychotherapy

A step towards inner peace and personal development

Therapy provides a space in which a young person can learn to surpass their difficulties and reduce the consequent symptoms of those. Difficulties can be expressed and wounds can be healed in order to improve their relationship with themselves and the world around them – to find a balance.
The aim is to build and explore the possibilities of their personality and in doing so create a solid foundation for a fulfilled life as an adult.

As soon as difficulties or emotional distress are identified by the child, adolescent or their parents, therapy can be considered. The sooner psychological treatment starts, the more of a chance we have of avoiding symptoms developing or worsening. Françoise Dolto emphasized the nature of child psychotherapy as being first and foremost preventative as opposed to curative: the importance of intervening before the symptoms become ingrained and too debilitating.

Neuropsychological Rehabilitation

For a more fulfilling learning and schooling experience

Neuropsychological rehabilitation is a way of helping children and adolescents with learning difficulties, such as problems concentrating, remembering or understanding information. The origin of the difficulty may be an attentional deficit disorder or poor memory or reasoning skills.

The aim of neuropsychological rehabilitation is to improve brain functioning and increase the efficiency of the processes involved in knowledge acquisition.
The sooner the treatment process starts, the better the chances are of avoiding educational issues and of encouraging learning.
