Anxiety can make you feel out of control. Whether it is unexpected, comes in the form of a panic attack or as persistant worries about what could happen if you make the wrong decision, your heart can be racing, you may feel sweaty and can begin to doubt if everything is fine.
We can all feel depressed sometimes. For most, feeling depressed only lasts a couple of days. But for some people, these feelings of sadness, loss of appetite and/or motivation and of just groing through life can last weeks or even months.
Grief and Loss
Losing someone or something important to you may cause hard to describe pain and sadness. It doesn't matter if you lost a person, a beloved pet, a job o a personal role, the pain and sadness can severly impact your life. When this happens, it is time to talk with a psychologist who can help you get through it.
As the rhythm of life accelerates, staying on top of things can be difficult. Work, life, relations, caring for children or aging parents can be exhausting and take a toll. Therapy can help you manage stress by taking control of your thinking and your emotions.
Couples Therapy / Couples Counselling
In couples therapy (couples counselling) you can resolve past hurts and find ways to forgive each other. As a couple you can also discover how to communicate better and listen to and respect each other’s needs. Our goal is to help you reconnect more deeply and find that you can feel closer than you have felt before.
Asperger’s syndrome (AS) is a form of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) that affects many individuals these days. It is a highly functional form of ASD where the individuals tend to show difficulties with social interaction and communication. Therapy for Asperger's Syndrom focuses on handling the anxiety and depression that people with AS often suffer, as well as teaching mechanisms to improve their social and communication skills.
What can you expect from therapy?
When you reach out to our office of psychologists in Merida, we will arrange an initial session where we listen to what is affecting you and you can figure out what it is that you are looking for in psychotherapy. Your therapist will help you understand the therapeutic process and the treatment plan will be discussed. The treatment plan can include weekly or bi-weekly sessions and an estimation of the duration of the therapy, be it a couple of weeks or months, depending on your case.
Most of our clients work with the psychologist an average of 6 to 20, 50 minutes sessions, depending on the nature and severity of your case. All our treatments are based on rigurous scientific research and are applied in collaboration with our patients. This means that your psychologist or counselling therapist will work with you, together as a team, to help you reach your goals. Treatment sessions could be scheduled weekly at first to allow you to learn skill and techniques to help you change your behaviour or problematic thinking. Once you master the skills and techniques, sessions could be set at longer intervals. Under certain conditions, we also offer weekend workshops and seminars.
