Child psychotherapy

In childhood, the psychotherapist creates a meaningful relationship with the child and uses different techniques and methods to help children express their emotional world, without being invasive, but letting the contents emerge through play, drawing or stories.


It accompanies parents and children to give meaning to the problem brought and through the collection of family history, of the child's development path and of its contexts to which it belongs.


The psychotherapist helps to understand the discomfort manifested by the child and accompanies all family members to find the resources to elaborate nuclei of suffering and conflict and to find new strategies to feel good.

EMDR approach

EMDR ( Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing ) is considered one of the most effective approaches in the treatment of psychological trauma and post-traumatic stress.

Our brain has a natural propensity to elaborate and integrate the experience into our life, but sometimes this process does not happen because the experiences are so perturbing that their memories remain "frozen". The physical and somatic sensations related to the trauma are constantly relived, especially in the presence of a stimulus capable of triggering them (even many years after the initial event) ._ cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_

In these cases, EMDR is fundamental because it promotes the integration of memories and traumatic sensations by enhancing the communication of the two cerebral hemispheres through bilateral ocular stimulation, to re-establish the correct excitatory and neuronal inhibitory balances. This allows the brain to process the memories of the traumatic event in its own experience and to favor the regulation of emotional states.

Disturbing memories lose their negative charge and change their meaning.

It decreases the intrusiveness of mental images and the intensity of somatic sensations related to the trauma, thus allowing a decrease in anxiety, hyperactivation and avoidance behaviors connected to the initial triggering stimulus.
