INDIVIDUAL ADULT PSYCHOTHERAPY
Individual Psychotherapy is a therapeutic process, which promotes mental stability, personal well-being and self-satisfaction. In this process, the psychologist helps the patient to clarify and know their functioning pattern, as well as their own difficulties and to find solutions and new strategies to deal effectively with them.
CHILD AND ADOLESCENT PSYCHOTHERAPY
Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy studies the infant's behaviours since he/she was born. This branch of Psychology focuses on the physical, motor, cognitive, perceptual, affective and social development of children and adolescents. The constant changes lead to the experience of extraordinarily strong feelings and potentially disorganising emotions, which may cause suffering and distress. These symptoms and anxieties, if not worked and resolved, may lead to the development of a psychopathology in adulthood. Thus, it is essential to intervene early.
Couple's Therapy is a psychotherapeutic method that focuses on the couple's relationship, in which the sessions involve the presence of each partner. This therapy aims to address the problems in the relationship and promote insight, as well as new ways of effectively dealing with these difficulties, allowing the couple to rejoin and improve their intimacy. Thus, the psychologist can propose some “homework” to reinforce new ways of relating to each other and unblock conflict areas. The effectiveness of this therapy is dependent on the partners' motivation to change and work on their relationship and communication.
Family Therapy sees the individual's symptom or problem/difficulty as a result of the dysfunctional way the family interacts. The therapist thus intervenes to create conditions for an improved dialogue between family members, helping to build healthy and harmonious relationships, and supporting families so that they can best deal with the challenges that arise. The sessions are held with the various elements of the family, however they may also involve only one individual.
Psychological Assessment is a process of testing that uses several techniques and tools of psychology in order to understand and have more information about the patient's behaviour, personality and skills. This assessment is made by a qualified psychologist that will interpret the scores of several tests (as well as other methods) and, consequently, create hypotheses of classification or diagnosis. These hypotheses can help better understand the patient's psychological functioning, as well as inform how to better intervene with that specific person (what should be the course of treatment).
