In this modality, the family is treated as a whole, even if it is only one of the members who is seems to be presenting the greatest need for therapy. This is because a family is a system in which the members are not isolated and they all influence each other, so EVERYONE can contribute to the solution.
The objective of the sessions is to strengthen intra-family relationships and transform family dynamics, creating a space where all family members have freedom of expression and can be heard.
A couple creates a very important emotional bond that leads to well-being and balance when the relationship works properly. However, very deep conflict and discomfort can also come up at different stages, such as when starting to live together, upon the arrival of the first child or when there has been an infidelity. Others are related to the environment, such as a difficult financial situation, unwanted job changes or the illness of a close relative.
In any case, all relationships go through difficult times, and facing and overcoming them contributes to solidifying the relationship. However, there are times when couples do not find a way to solve their relationship problems and in these cases couples therapy can help.

An identity crisis is a period in which the person experiences deep doubts about themselves, doubts about the meaning of existence, accompanied by feelings of emptiness, loneliness, and confusion.

There is a social image of sexuality than can create a great deal of pressure and influence on us. Beyond this, a sexual problem is what takes us away from intimate well-being, with our body and that of others. It affects self-image, interpersonal relationships, self-esteem, power relationships, dominance, frustration, and social relationships. In this sense, not exploring our sexual identity limits the possibilities of full and conscious expression of our being.
Human sexuality is a fundamental part of our identity. It involves physical satisfaction and a way to bond with your partner, to increase self-esteem, to increase mood, and to reconcile with your own body. However, with a high prevalence, sexuality can be affected in the different phases of the sexual response or even in our self-esteem, for this, you may need support to address the issue.
The concept of cultural identity has allowed us to think about how we come to recognize ourselves as competent subjects of dynamics and relationships based on specific values, customs and traditions. Identity is not a fact, but a process, so there is no beginning and end that take place in specific life cycles.
Rather, it is a series of transformations that take place under different circumstances that are neither fixed nor immovable. However, for different reasons it is not always easy to feel part of that cultural identity, sometimes you can experience so many different versions of “me”, depending on the group you are with, or the language you are speaking. There could also be a frequent feeling of loneliness when having difficulty identifying with a social group, either peers or family members.
