The Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) provided in our center has been scientifically proven to be effective with children, adolescents and adults. The CBT will not only focus on reducing symptoms, it will help embracing the strengths of our clients to be more resilient and engaged in their life. The therapy will be provided in a supportive and confidential atmosphere where we respect cultural and individual differences. Therefore, each therapy will be personalized to help our clients, children or adults, to reach their goals. The CBT can be described as generally active, directive, structured and relatively short-lived. It focuses on the present while understanding the origin of the problem in the past.
