Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Therapy that teaches the person, through a series of strategies and techniques, to relearn how to face their problems, to recognize the thinking styles that predispose the person to reach certain unhelpful conclusions that worsen their mental health and to develop a reflection on their own way of thinking.

Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT)

Therapy that helps to detect, discuss and change beliefs and attitudes that only add to the person’s pain. Once the person feels better, he/she can focus on developing those goals that in the past seemed impossible.

Psychodrama Techniques

These techniques conceive the person as a group, social being and not as an isolated individual. Through action, the past, present and future of what has been lived, imagined or fantasized is staged in order to be able to live it from the here and now.

Family therapy

Family therapy evaluates how a person’s behavior affects relationships with other family members and family dynamics. It consists of creating a space where empathy and understanding are encouraged in order to improve communication, solve problems and find ways to work together.

Third generation therapies

The main objective of this therapy is to change the way of perceiving the problem on the part of the person in treatment, without attempting extreme control or extirpating their behaviors as if they were something to be ashamed of. The person is helped to observe and rethink the relationship between his or her behaviors and the functionality they have been given. The person is approached beyond the presence of symptoms to act on subjectivity and personal perception.
