"
The therapeutic process is partly similar to the concept of a tabula rasa, whose blank spaces are progressively filled in by the expansion of self-knowledge, the acquisition of skills and the products of communication guided by empathy, understanding and trust.

Each consultation is part of a journey for two, led and guided by the patient. It is precisely through the therapeutic alliance and the safe environment that their existence provides that the opportunity for their personal development arises, facilitated by the psychologist, always in favor of psychological well-being."
