How to find the right Psychotherapist in Costa Rica for you
Each day our society suffers more from mental illnesses such as depression and burnout. At the same time, sufferers often have to wait long for an outpatient appointment with the right clinical psychotherapist.
Getting social attention in mental health tends to take too long for an appointment, and this will change when people realice that this is a priority for health and society in general. So because of this, we put in disposition an Integral Psychology Clinic, that gives children psychotherapy, teenagers therapy, individual therapy, couples therapy and family therapy.
Request Psychotherapeutic Availability and Credentials
The search in an industry telephone book can also give an overview of treatment offers in the immediate vicinity. Who is a psychotherapist, and what area do they work. In this Clinic, we offer not only a schedules from Monday to Friday 7:00 am to 9:00 pm but Saturdays from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm, in locations in every point of GAM:
- Heredia Centro,
- Alajuela Centro and
- Cartago Centro.
Our psychotherapists law states that only those may call themselves a psychotherapist, after a comprehensive education, and the license granted by the Colegio de Psicólogos de Costa Rica. When this job title is read on the practice shield, the therapist is adequately qualified to treat mental illness.
Clinical therapists in Costa Rica
This is also used because of the clinical view of the therapist. Patients can basically decide themselves to which professional group they want to address their problems, doctors or psychologists.
Medical psychotherapists work more often on the basis of depth psysiological procedures. A small proportion have training in behavioral and cognitive therapy. Psychological therapists, on the other hand, are more often oriented towards behavioral therapy.
Forms of Psychological Therapy
For patients, it makes sense to think in advance whether they want to focus more on the past or better on the future in therapy. Those who would rather research the causes of today’s problems in their life history are probably in better hands with depth-psychologically, Psychoanalists, oriented therapists.
If it is more a question of solving specific problems, a behavior-oriented therapy would be preferred.
