Individual psychotherapy for adolescents
Individual psychotherapy for adolescents is a series of sessions with a psychotherapist that will allow young persons to develop a better understanding about the main source of their problems. We recommend individual psychotherapy for people struggling with despondency, depression, stress, anxiety, eating disorders, sleep disorders, difficulties in establishing relationships with other people, and for those struggling to cope with the loss of a loved one.
The reasons for coming to our Center may also be a recent crisis, a feeling that one’s life lacks meaning, a feeling of emptiness in relationships with others, experiencing physical or psychological abuse, or engaging in risky behaviors.
The motivation to seek psychological help may also be in an effort to get to know yourself better in order to find more fulfilment in your life. The safe environment presented during the therapeutic process will make it easier for a young person to learn more about themselves, and as a result, allow for greater personal development, to implement changes related to problematic areas, and above all to enjoy a more satisfying life.
Sessions take place once a week at fixed times. Each session lasts 50 mins. The length of therapy depends on a patient’s problems and needs.
Psychotherapy is preceded by a consultation (one to three meetings). For minors, consultation is held together with the parents or guardians of the young person. If you are 18 years or older you can undertake therapy on your own. During the consultation, the therapist will try to understand a patient’s problems and together with the patient set up therapeutic goals, the length of the psychotherapy, and method of payment.
