What I do
The location of the therapy provides a weekly session lasting about 50 minutes for a period of up to 12-14 months any music therapy sessions are established during the course of therapy depending on the need and the mood of the patient (in this case a session lasts about two hours and involves listening to specific tracks in connection with the discomfort that is exposed by the patient).
Areas of practice:
Panic attacks, anxiety disorders, generalized anxiety disorder, specific phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), mood disorders, and relationship and communication problems within a couple are psychological issues that can have a significant impact on a person’s life.
Panic attacks are sudden episodes of intense fear that may be accompanied by physical symptoms such as palpitations, sweating, and a sense of choking. These attacks can be frightening and debilitating, often leading individuals to avoid situations that trigger them.
Generalized anxiety disorder is characterized by excessive and persistent worry about various aspects of daily life, such as work, health, or family. People with this disorder experience a constant sense of apprehension and tension, even in the absence of a real threat.
Specific phobias are intense and irrational fears of specific objects, situations, or animals. For example, fear of spiders (arachnophobia) or fear of flying (pteromerhanophobia). Individuals with specific phobias may actively avoid what scares them, thus limiting their daily activities.
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is characterized by the presence of obsessions and compulsions. Obsessions are recurring and unwanted thoughts that cause anxiety, while compulsions are repetitive behaviors enacted to reduce anxiety. For example, a person may be obsessed with the fear of contamination and engage in compulsive cleaning rituals.
Mood disorders, such as depression or bipolar disorder, affect a person’s mood and ability to experience pleasure. They can cause persistent sadness, loss of interest in daily activities, and changes in appetite and sleep patterns.
Relationship and communication problems within a couple can stem from various factors, such as a lack of effective communication, trust issues, or difficulty resolving conflicts. These problems can lead to tension and dissatisfaction in the relationship, ultimately diminishing the quality of life for both partners.
It is important to recognize that these issues can be treated. Cognitive-behavioral therapy is a common approach to addressing these disorders and relational problems. Therapy can help individuals identify and modify negative thinking patterns, confront fears, and develop more effective communication strategies.
If you or someone you know is facing any of these challenges, it is important to seek support from a mental health professional. With appropriate treatment and support, many people can overcome these issues, improving their quality of life and psychological well-being.
