Psychological Therapy for Adults
in Puerto Vallarta or Online

A balanced and healthy lifestyle

During our psychological therapy sessions for adults, you will learn different ways to confront and resolve difficult situations in your daily life. Together we will work on managing your emotions in a positive way.

Nobody feels happy all the time and it is healthy to live all our emotions. The important is that you keep a balance between these emotions, and knowing how to manage them in a way that does not harm you or the people around you, that is what you will achieve through psychological therapy.

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

You assist in a series of sessions to carry out a process where I will accompany you and help you realize what you do and how you do it. Working from your needs, fears, or difficulties that you currently live in your life, without ruling out the importance of the past but focusing on the present.

The therapeutic work of each session focuses on finding out, together with you, what is happening to him in the present. What has led you to develop a certain behavior or pathology; from suffering or discomfort that interferes in your daily life to depression, anxiety, phobia, etc. The main objective of therapy is to make you more aware of yourself and your environment from an awareness in the here and now with which you access to create new strategies and then obtain the necessary tools to regain the lost balance and self help you.

Psychotherapy has many different methods. Psychologists generally take advantage of one or more methods. Each theoretical perspective acts as a roadmap for the psychologist to understand his clients and their problems and create solutions.

The type of treatment you will receive depends on a wide variety of factors: current psychological research, the theoretical orientation of the psychologist, and what is most appropriate to your situation. The psychologist’s theoretical perspective will influence what happens in his office. For example, psychologists who use cognitive-behavioral therapy have a practical approach to treatment. The psychologist may ask you to do certain tasks designed to help you create more effective skills for dealing with problems. Often this method involves homework assignments. Additionally, the psychologist may ask you to gather more information, such as recording your reactions to a particular situation, as they occur. In contrast, psychoanalytic and humanistic methods generally focus on dialogue rather than action.

The sessions could be devoted to analyzing their experiences in previous stages of your life so that you and the psychologist can better understand the causes of your current problems.

The psychologist can combine elements of various styles of psychotherapy. In fact, most therapists are not limited to a specific method, but instead, combine elements of different methods and tailor treatment according to the needs of each client. The main thing is to know if the psychologist has knowledge in the area in which you need help and if the psychologist believes that he can help you.
