In addition, the therapist will provide emotional support and important insights, which will enable you to see your conflicts and problems in a new light and to gradually let go of old patterns of feelings and behaviours.

    At the Londres Practice, we offer the following types of approaches:

    - Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
    - Psychodynamic Psychotherapy
    - Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy
    - Humanistic therapy
    - Systemic / Family therapy

    Some of our therapists work from an integrative approach to psychotherapy and depending on the circumstances, make use of interventions from different approaches.

    Treatment begins with an initial consultation, which will involve an evaluation of your needs. This will also be an opportunity for you to evaluate whether you feel comfortable working with your therapist.

  • Couple therapy

    At the Londres Practice we work with couples with a wide range of problems on improving the quality of their relationships.
    We aim to create a safe environment where couples can explore frustrating patterns in their relationships, work through their specific conflicts, communication issues and deepen trust.
    We use a wide range of practical exercises and techniques to help couples improve relationship skills and decrease patterns of relating that cause frustration and emotional upset. We help couples to explore how to express feelings constructively and how to listen compassionately in order to increase mutual understanding and communication.
    We help couples create a healthy balance between collectiveness and independence and work out many types of conflicts such as: sexual difficulties, power imbalances, financial struggles and family conflicts.

  • Group Therapy

    In group therapy, you learn that you are not alone in experiencing problems and that there is hope and help. Group therapy allows you to learn from the experiences of others with similar problems, and also allows you to better understand how people very different from yourself view the world and interact with people.
    In group therapy, individuals usually recreate those difficulties that brought them to group therapy in the the first place. The group allows a person to develop new ways of relating to people in a safe environment, with a psychologist present to assist as needed.
    The group members are able to give support, offer alternatives, and comfort to each other in such a way that these difficulties become resolved and alternative behaviors are learned.
    It is important to keep in mind that you are the one who determines how much you disclose in a group. You will not be forced to tell you deepest and innermost thoughts.
