Counseling - Psychotherapy
Counseling is a specialty in the science of psychology. Its purpose is to restore the individual's mental health and self-awareness, which contributes predominantly to the maximum utilization of personal abilities, to the immediate solution of a problem and to the development of the individual's inner potential to the fullest extent possible. It is carried out by specific methods and techniques and is practiced by trained counselors. This is a shorter process than psychotherapy, where the inner world of the individual is not thoroughly analyzed, but focuses on changing behavior and offers support, alternatives, and new perspectives.
Counseling and psychotherapy are processes where we have the possibility to discuss issues that concern us with a specialist who is trained to understand and help us solve any issues we care about.
It is a journey, a path you make as a healer with the guidance and support of your therapist. It is a branch of applied psychology that is constantly evolving and based on scientifically substantiated theories about human personality and behavior while using a set of scientific methods and techniques.
The ultimate goal of individual psychotherapy is the reconstruction of the individual. By the term "rebuilding the person" we mean changing his way of thinking, managing and processing his feelings and behavior and, more generally, personal development. Individual goals include solving internal conflicts and problems, treating psychopathological symptoms, improving psychological skills, self-awareness, learning problem solving skills, improving self-esteem and self-image, improving social relationships and skills and any other change or improvement.
These services have the potential to help us better understand ourselves, our feelings and behavior as well as provide us with the support we need to make the necessary changes that will improve the quality of our lives.
The choice of counseling or psychotherapy depends on the nature of the difficulties, the degree of internal blocking of the individual, and the readiness of the person being treated to "dip" himself. In the first session, this question explores and makes the right choice for the intervention framework that best suits everyone.
Group therapy, as well as individual therapy, aims to help people who want to improve their capacity and to deal with the difficulties and problems of their lives more effectively.
The characteristic of group psychotherapy is that the session is conducted with an entire group of people and with one (two) psychotherapist coordinators, as opposed to the individual session involving the patient and his psychotherapist. This very existence of the team and the ability to explore its difficulties through it puts a particular emphasis on the interpersonal interactions of people and the problems that arise in interpersonal relationships. It is based on the strength that each of us acquires when belonging to a group and benefits of interpersonal interaction has been developed for many decades as one of the basic methods of psychotherapy. Through the team, we learn to share their problems and concerns, to better understand the reasons we face situations and to manage them successfully, and to learn with others in a sheltered environment with the help of specialists.
Online-Counselling: Online video consultation is a new way to get in touch with a psychologist to work on issues that concern him. Many people prefer to contact the specialist via the Internet. The reasons for this decision are their aggravated program, difficulties in moving to the psychologist's office, agoraphobia, fear of stigma, the comfort and availability of the Internet, and so on.
The online counseling may be brief information or provided on a stable medium-term basis. In any case, it is a confidential and comfortable process between the psychologist and the patient, in order to properly inform the individual about his problem and to clarify his thoughts and feelings.
The Internet Advisory Services process is governed by the ISMHO (International Society for Mental Health On Line) principles.
