The psychologist is a professional specialized in thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Her work is carried out with people who are in a difficult moment in their life or who face a problem that they do not know how to solve.
The psychologist has assessment, diagnosis, and treatment tools to help solve these problems and also to prevent future ones, helping people with resources and strategies that will make them feel more stable and strong in day-to-day life.
“When the other person is hurting, confused, troubled, anxious, alienated, terrified; or when he or she is doubtful of self-worth, uncertain as to identity, then understanding is called for. The gentle and sensitive companionship of an empathic stance… provides illumination and healing. In such situations, deep understanding is, I believe, the most precious gift one can give to another.”
― Carl R. Rogers
