The cases are carefully worked on and the interventions are adapted to each patient by integrating classical currents of psychology with state-of-the-art techniques to offer the best possible service.

Cepsim: a multidisciplinary team that integrates various currents and techniques

The range of perspectives from which the service starts

1. Cognitive-Behavioral

Focused on understanding how one thinks about oneself, one’s environment and the world around one . Works on the difficulties of the “here and now” and how thoughts and feelings are influenced by behaviour.

2. Systemic therapy

It is a family therapy that can be applied to the family or focused on the individual and his/her systems, that is, on how the development of the individual has been marked by his/her family relationships, that may have generated the dysfunctions, disorders and illnesses as a result of alterations in relational styles and communication patterns.

3. Psychoanalysis

Through psychoanalysis one can learn the psychic mechanisms that produce illness or suffering, as well as those that will work to achieve well-being.

4. Psychodynamic therapy

Through it emotional causes of psychological and behavioural problems are explored and the patient is helped to resolve and overcome moments of crisis.

5. Gestalt therapy

It favors the growth of the patient by making him/her overcome and accept his/her negative parts, his/her blockages, which will give the individual freedom and capacity for self-realization. It is a therapy of the situation and the present.

6. Internal family systems

It is a therapy based on helping to accept and understand parts of our inner world that we do not understand and reject.

7. Compassionate therapy

It is a style of cognitive therapy that focuses on accepting ourselves and focusing on compassion rather than criticism, shame and guilt, which we usually experience.

8. Sensorimotor therapy

The patient is freed from the trauma from a “bottom-up” view, i.e. from the body to the mind and not the other way around, as has traditionally been the case.

9. Hypnosis

Hypnosis can be used as a technique that accompanies the modification of behaviour and thought, as an enhancer of the patient’s resources, among other benefits.

10. Mindfulness

It is based on being present, in the here and now, so that we help our brain not to make “temporary trips”, to get rid of obsessive thoughts, to relax and avoid stress .
