Psychotherapy of young adults (from 16 years old) and adult
Each is confronted, in his life, to events, more or less difficult to cope with, more or less painful. Often, we succeed to handle the situation by ourselves. But, sometimes, the situation is too hard, too painful or too sudden and the pain lasts. We can also notice that we repeat the same mistakes. Those are the points that should orientate us to a therapy.
There are no objective reasons to consult a therapist. Suffering is subjective and individual. You can only decide whether you need it or not.
You might need a psychotherapist because you meet:
a. Personal difficulties: Self esteem, anxiety, repetition of painful behaviour…
b. Ordeals: bereavement, separation, failure, job loss …
c. Tense relationships or communications with others, punctual or general …
d. Minor sexual psychogenic disorders (psycho-sexuality)
e. Incapacity to step back from a situation : need help to clarify the situation
f. Any matters about child development: questions about parenthood and the child.
g. A need for support without any affective investment to face a chronic disease
h. Any difficulties connected with cultural differences: cultural conflict within the couple and /or at work, expatriate status, linguistic misunderstanding, integration of the other’s culture / religion in the therapy.
Psychological support of the divorced / separated person
Every person who is getting divorced / separated has to operate some psychological rearrangements. Those rearrangements happen more or less naturally, more or less easily. One of the most difficult think to cope with is the suddenness and the compulsory of the rearrangements. The state of shock brings often incapacity to rebuild one’s new life to a halt. And, when there is a kid in between, the construction of a new life gets even more complicated.
Our work in therapy is to elaborate around the parameters typically fragile in the situation of divorce/ separation and to helps to reborn with the less pain possible.
The parameters are around pain, guilt, getting form “WE” to “I”, feeling of emptiness, loss of self esteem, loss of thrust in love, raising the children, reconstituted family…
In this context, the consultations are mainly the same that of a normal therapy but their orientation will be around the handling of the separation / divorce and the reconstruction of life.
Nevertheless, they have one particularity which is the necessary reactivity due to the context. For example, while the consultations were moving freely since a while, we have to react to a decision of the judge, the ex that drove you crazy or is getting married, etc. This session will probably be disjointed and will mainly consist in how to cope with this news. However, this will tell us a lot about you and your forces and weaknesses and this session will be rich in material to analyse and in development.
