What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is a practice which is based on cooperation and “alliance” between a therapist and a visitor (client), in order to discuss and improve serious issues of everyday life, personality and sociability of an individual. Through dialogue, a supportive environment is created in which the therapist remains objective, neutral and non-judgmental. The therapist and the visitor collaborate creating and reinforcing a climate of trust, in order to identify and change the ‘problematic’ pattern of thinking and behavior aiming the improvement of daily functioning.

In psychotherapy, therapists apply scientific based psychotherapy, which helps to create a basis for developing and maintaining (in daily routine) healthy, flexible and effective habits. The aim of psychotherapy is not only to address the current “problem-issue” an individual faces, but to strengthen the way of thinking, to build tools and practices that will enable them to cope with future challenges that will arise.
