Psychotherapy can undoubtedly benefit people in many areas.Learning new techniques and expanding their way of thinking, they discover new ideas and new skills that will allow them to evolve, will strengthen their self-esteem and self-confidence and will give them the boost to get to know very well the elements of their character and personality.
When you are unbearably ¨tortured¨ by certain situations that cause you intense emotional pain and deadlocks Psychotherapy could be considered as a gift that you could generously give to yourself. In Psychotherapy you will learn to be yourself, you will face your strengths and your mental endurance. You will find out if your way of thinking, your reactions and your behavior hold you static at a point or take you steps further, where you can evolve and carry out with patience, courage and faith all these situations that used to frighten you, terrorize you and cause you discomfort.
It is scientifically documented that Psychotherapy has obvious positive results. The number of sessions required to reach a satisfactory level varies according to the type, intensity and repetition of the problem that concerns the individual. Research has shown that many people see benefits already from 3-4 sessions.
In some other cases a larger number of sessions are required. In any case, whatever will be implemented will be done in consultation with the person who attends the session where his/her needs and desires are considered very seriously.
No. Psychologist doesn't have that jurisdiction.
One session lasts 45 to 60 minutes.
The first session lasts longer, as it is introductory.
According to Low 991/79, Article 9, it is established that the Psychologist must be completely confidential about what he learns or perceives during the session. This confidentiality can only be broken in extremely rare cases.
The therapeutic relationship can clearly be terminated whenever this becomes necessary or the need for termination arises, whether the request by which the person first came to Psychotherapy has been met, or the reasons for attendance are no longer strong and necessary.
The economic issue is certainly a matter of concern to every person and has a positive or negative impact on many areas of his/her life. After discussion and careful consideration of all needs and possibilities, satisfactory and advantageous solutions can be found for both parties.
There is absolutely not a chance. The stigma of Mental Illness is a phenomenon that counts many years of existence in people’s minds and is research-proven that it prevents a part of the population from visiting a Psychologist. This is a false belief that automatically links Psychotherapy to madness and severe ental illness. But that is not the case. People tend to formulate and evaluate Psychotherapy with false and biased impressions, because they do not know exactly what this process is and how exactly it evolves and takes place. You see, Psychology courses, and teaching on mental issues, are not held in any school, in any compulsory level of education. It makes sense to be afraid of something which is unknown and distant and to give it negative labels, because you do not know how to accept and manage it. Mental illness should no longer frighten anyone.
Direct weapons are the involvement, contact and education on issues related to Mental Disorders and Mental Health. Thousands of scientific articles and bibliographies prove and document in practice that visiting a Psychologist does not automatically imply that you are ¨crazy¨ or that your soul is seriously and incurably ill and feel remorse and be ashamed of it.
The process of Psychotherapy is structured in such a way, that its benefits are strong, powerful and effective and become a way of life for humans. Impeccable cooperation, patience, learning how to deal with situations, putting them into practice, repetition, along with the support provided to the individual, when fails to apply a new practice, as well as finding motivation
to set goals and try to implement them, are Psychotherapy tools that alone provide long-term benefits, which are so assimilated by the person who will hardly forget or ignore them. So they are unlikely to be short-lived and weaken soon.
Although a friend or relative will be extremely willing to help and to some extent will succeed, it’s not the same as
addressing a psychologist. The love and devotion of the friend or relative creates a tendency to turn a blind eye and not properly judge our thoughts and behavior.
It is precisely because our friend or relative wants the best for us and not wanting to hurt us it may agree with what we say although it takes a different view and has objections to how we manage a particular issue.
The Psychologist, on the contrary, holds a more neutral and objective attitude.
The Psychologist knows how and when to urge us to act, how to change the way we think and process the various stimuli, how to express our feelings in the appropriate way and at what time it is best to do so. It will judge our behavior, but discreetly and with logical arguments will enable us to understand where we are wrong and make our mistakes. Unlike our friend or relative who may judge us in a steep or rude way. This of course may be unconsciously done and does not even realize that he/she is doing it, but it results in us reacting defensively and recklessly which is far from good for us.
With scientific knowledge and experience, the Psychologist will be able to give new guidelines and guide us properly and effectively free from prejudices and emotional influences which are neither beneficial nor useful in the Psycho-Therapy process.
