Work philosophy

Cognitive-Behavioural therapy (CBT) is a collaborative approach centred on the ‛here and now’ which aims at:

  • objectively diminishing the person’s difficulty and help her to build her well-being,
  • reinforcing and developing her own resources, autonomy and personal effectiveness,
  • setting up sustainable changes in respect with the person’s own rhythm and wishes,
  • learning skills to facilitate effective change and generalising ways of coping with difficulties to other contexts and situations.
  • In this approach, the client and therapist form a collaborative team aiming at learning and developing new skills and ways of being, feeling and acting, in order to alleviate distress, cope with difficulties and bloom.

The therapist's attitude 

CBT is a structured therapy, which involves a partnership between you and your therapist. You are fully involved in planning your treatment and the therapist will always let you know what is happening.

Together, as a team, you will try to solve the difficulties and aim a general well-being within a collaborative, authentic and warm atmosphere.

  • The CBT therapist takes the time to listen and understand your issues in respect with your rhythm and capacities.
  • He takes an active part in the session by listening, intervening, helping you to express and detail your sensations and feelings, identify your thoughts.
  • He facilitates the exchange, asks questions and responds to yours. He is didactic, suggests hypotheses and actively examines different options with you.
  • CBT therapists consider informing their client as essential for the treatment as understanding a problem enables the client to cope with his/her difficulties and disorders. For that reason, flyers and leaflets are available in our waiting room.

The therapist is specialised in the mechanisms that underlie the disorders and the client is the expert of his own issues. He takes an active part in his treatment as he knows his issues thoroughly and can observe them in details. Psychological problems can only be solved with the collaboration of both therapist and client.
