Adult Psychotherapy

  • Adults may look for psychotherapy when there are difficulties in different areas of life, disorders (e.g. depression, anxiety), normative or eminent crises, and need for personal development.
  • In a consultation, adults sometimes refer traumas, anxieties, worries, fears, sleep and appetite changes, doubts, hopelessness, behavioural, emotional, and family-related crises, among others.

How can adult psychotherapy help?

  • Psychotherapy can help in emotional contention and management of normative or eminent crises, and improving and deepening personal understanding and problem-solving, enabling the development of emotional and social awareness, resources and skills to deal with obstacles and increasing well-being.
