Psychotherapy gives you a chance to analyze and prospect the various areas of difficulty or problems of your life. It starts with you sharing information about yourself, your life and your problems. Psychotherapy for me is the possibility to question every option, have the freedom to consider the possible outcomes and consequences of our actions and to have the time and space to decide what can make you happier, prouder and fulfilled as a human being or as a couple.
