Psychotherapy is the comprehensive, conscious and planned treatment of suffering states: psychosocial, psychosomatic and behavioural disorders, using psychotherapeutic methods derived from established and scientific psychological principles.

Through psychological techniques, including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) but also mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MCBPC), psychotherapy allows people with personal difficulties to work on their thoughts, emotions and behaviours in order to reduce or eliminate their distress.

Psychotherapy treats the symptoms responsible for the patient’s suffering. It is the therapeutic relationship between the patient and the therapist as well as the neuro-semantic (verbal) and emotional exchange that allows for this improvement.

The purpose of psychotherapy is to relieve and help patients to change their thoughts, emotions and behaviours that disturb patients. Psychotherapy will thus promote their maturity, development and health, allowing them to lead happier and more fulfilling lives.
