Many people reach a point in their lives when they feel overwhelmed by a particular problem and feel as though they need someone to accompany them and help them get through a difficult moment.
Individual psychotherapy provides a space where a person can talk about and work on their personal fears, concerns and frustrations while in the company of a trained professional. The client and the professional work together – within a context characterized by confidentiality and trust – towards diminishing the individual’s pain and suffering.
Why consult a psychologist?
any of the emotions that are a part of human existence and with which we coexist on a daily basis– such as anxiety, sadness and stress – are emotions that, when present in excess, become obstacles in our paths towards achieving our goals, thus causing us pain and suffering.
Often times people can identify that they are experiencing these emotions and conflicts in excess yet, despite a conscious effort to control or change the situation, find themselves unable to do so.
Some of the issues that lead people to consult a psychologist can be of an interpersonal or situational nature, such as: occupational changes or conflicts, difficulties in relating to and interacting with others, relational conflicts, coping with a loved one’s loss, or dealing with a change in country or city, amongst others. Other issues can be of a more emotional nature, such as experiencing constant feelings of sadness or depression, anxiety or excessive fears.
Some of the issues that could lead to a consultation are:
- Obsessions and compulsions
- Problems associated to migration/cultural adaptation
- Constant and continuous sense of sadness and depression
- Lack of motivation in work or studies
- Interpersonal conflicts (with partner, family or co-workers)
- Phobias (intensive fears) which could be either generalized (for example, fear of leaving the house) or specific, (for example, fear of spiders)
- Difficulty in dealing with change
- Post traumatic stress disorder
What type of psychotherapy do I practice?
he origins of the aforementioned issues are multiple and result from the particular intertwining of each individual’s psychological and biological history, their psychosocial context, and the skills and abilities each individual counts on in order to deal with life’s obstacles and vicissitudes. Given the singular nature of each individual’s history and personality, it is part of my ethos to consider that no one single methodology can be applicable to all cases nor can facilitate change in all individuals.
Consequently, in order to respect the complexity and singularity of every individual’s experience, I construct a treatment plan for each client that integrates different techniques and methods in such a manner as to address the particularities of the their problems and concerns. The basis for this methodology comes from foundations that I received at the University of Buenos Aires, a theoretical base then complemented and enhanced by my continuing training in systemic, psychodynamic and cognitive therapies.
