Individual and Group Psychotherapy
It all started with a meeting between a doctor and a patient. It was Freud who initiated the practice and who elucidated its process and therapeutic efficacy by giving the patient a voice. In a psychoanalytic treatment, the story is heard: milestones and biopsychosocial context; in short, the life of a patient beyond diagnostic labels.

A time and a place to develop the enigma of discomfort
Psychoanalysis applied to therapeutic issues implies being guided by the subjective symptom a patient suffers. It is operated both from the word and its unconscious determinations and from the repetition involved there, opening up a work of elaboration with the help of the psychoanalyst
The analytical treatment is not only intended to alleviate the symptom in the global sense but also to be guided by what the symptom means, taking into account what hinders the cure both for sense proliferations and for what does not cease to be repeated in the discomfort that afflicts the subject.
The psychoanalytic clinic focuses on a subject who is responsible for their suffering and is aware of what is happening to them. This way, a time and a place to develop the enigma of discomfort arises with the development of the treatment.
Psychotherapeutic treatment is typically approached individually but there are situations where the group plays an important role and that allows with and through it to elaborate and deepen in questions that seek answers: groups of parents whose children or adolescents have ADHD, Autism, victims of bullying and psychological abuse, caregivers of relatives with chronic diseases or patients who have undergone psychopharmacological treatment for extended periods and are looking for ways to reduce them. Thus, a group acquires its consistency and psychotherapeutic purpose in sessions that are oriented both to what happens to the person and to the group as a whole.
