What is done in psychological therapy?
The person who goes to therapy takes a process accompanied by the psychologist who helps him/her realize what he/she does and how does it. It works from the needs, fears and difficulties that the person has at the present moment of his/her life, not excluding or disregard the impact of past experiences.
The therapeutic work of each session focuses on finding out, along with the patient, what happens in the present. What is it that has led him to develop a given disease (depression, anxiety, phobias, addictions, etc.) and experience a degree of suffering high enough to interfere with daily life. All this without forgetting your present can stay connected to past experiences or anticipating future fears.
