Individual Psychotherapy

All of our therapists provide verbal therapy for individuals of all ages. Regular psychotherapy gives you space to discuss ongoing and past issues while gaining new insights into your emotions and behaviors and an understanding of the different patterns you may find yourself stuck in. Individual psychotherapy can help you determine changes or goals you'd like to work toward. Therapy sessions are usually held once or twice a week at a set time. Our therapists are trained in a range of psychotherapeutic models and techniques.

Yoga therapy, an emerging field of therapy, refers to the adaptation and application of yoga techniques and practices to improve overall health and well-being. Yoga alignment principles, in the form of specifically chosen yoga poses, and yogic breathing techniques are used to reintegrate the body, mind and breath. In returning to a more aligned state, areas of physical strength and flexibility are balanced, breathing is freed and the mind develops a more sustained ability to concentrate. Yoga therapy sessions are generally held one-on-one or in small groups and the yoga therapist assists the person in various yoga poses, sometimes combined with therapeutic dialogue.

Psychoanalysis is based on the belief that individuals are often unaware of many of the factors that determine their emotions and behavior. These unconscious factors may create unhappiness, sometimes in the form of recognizable symptoms and at other times as troubling personality traits, difficulties in relationships (work or love), or disturbances in mood and self-esteem.

The patient comes for psychoanalysis between two to five times a week, lies on a couch, and attempts to say everything that comes to mind. As the patient speaks, hints of the unconscious sources of current difficulties gradually begin to appear. These sources appear in certain repetitive patterns of behavior, in the subjects which the patient finds hard to talk about, in the ways the patient relates to the analyst. The analyst helps elucidate these for the patient, who refines, corrects, rejects, and adds further thoughts and feelings. During the time that an analysis takes place, the patient wrestles with these insights, going over them again and again with the analyst and experiencing them in daily life, in fantasies, and in dreams. Patient and analyst join in efforts not only to change crippling life patterns and remove incapacitating symptoms, but also to expand the freedom to work, play, and to love.

We offer psychological testing for learning difficulties and ADHD to children and adults.
