Psychotherapy aims at reducing psycho-emotional suffering and improving psychological balance.
Psychotherapy promotes psychological well-being and acceptance of human vulnerability.
Psychotherapy works for developing self-awareness and understanding of yourself.
The therapeutic relationship helps you develop your relational skills and understanding of the other.
Choosing to start a psychotherapy is a thoughtful and important decision, which requires both personal and economic commitment. Sometimes it may appear clear that this is what you want, sometimes this desire may be jeopardized by fears and/or prejudice.
It can happen to everyone during their life to find themselves experiencing a complex period, a situation of difficulty or discomfort, which cause unpleasant sensations and emotions (such as anxiety, fear, anger or sadness), making you unable to face it alone or with the simple support of friends and family.
This can occur in conjunction with an evolutionary passage of life (such as leaving the home of parents, marriage, the birth of a child, retiring, etc.), or following a painful event (such as a separation, mourning, illness, dismissal, etc.), but sometimes it can also occur for no apparent reason, without being able to clearly understand what is the cause of the discomfort, of the suffering.
Nonetheless, it can happen that you are not experiencing any difficult or complex period but that you feel the desire of reaching a greater and deeper knowledge of yourself and your life situation or you may desire to enhance the awareness of your body sensations, feelings, and needs so to live a more authentic life.
You may feel the need or desire for a psychotherapy for:
facing a difficult period or event;
improving the quality of your life and your social/emotional/work relationships;
learning to manage stress more effectively;
modifying dysfunctional behaviors and/or understanding their meaning;
getting to know yourself in greater depth and increasing self-awareness;
having a safe, protected, and private space where to take care of yourself.
