Frequently Asked Questions

The decision to begin psychotherapy is a personal one, and it’s essential to embark on this journey when you feel ready. We all experience a range of emotions and thoughts daily, some pleasant and others less so. It becomes important to consider seeking professional help when these unpleasant feelings and thoughts persist for an extended period, hindering your ability to function in your personal, professional, and social life. While your support system plays a valuable role, combining it with professional guidance from a specialist can be highly beneficial.

In the realm of psychotherapy, the notion of what constitutes a “serious problem” is subjective. Each individual perceives and experiences emotions differently, be it anxiety, separation, bereavement, or other challenges. Therapy is not limited to addressing only what we might classify as serious problems. It is a resource for anyone seeking support or personal development, regardless of the specific issue.

The role of a psychologist is not to provide ready-made solutions or offer advice. Instead, it involves careful listening without judgment, creating an authentic and supportive environment that empowers individuals to become their own therapists. Through scientifically proven techniques, a psychologist helps clients better understand themselves, recognize difficulties, and acquire effective coping strategies, ultimately leading to a more satisfying and functional life.

Psychotherapy sessions typically last between 45 minutes, with the frequency tailored to the client’s needs. It is advisable to schedule sessions once a week or at least twice a month to maintain continuity and effectiveness.

In the event that you are unable to attend a scheduled session, please notify your therapist at least 12 hours in advance. This courtesy allows for effective scheduling and ensures that you receive the support you need at a time that suits you best.
