We exist through the interpersonal relationships we build. Through them, as we grow, our personality is formed. Having healthy relationships helps us maintain mental health. However, building healthy bonds is difficult if we carry childhood trauma or repeat pathological patterns. When we are born, we are programmed to start building emotional bonds with our parents because our survival depends on them.
Relationships with parents and couples relationships are the main reasons for psychological consultation. The early patterns of relationships often affect the emotional bonds we establish with our partner or friends, although we are not always aware of the analogies.
In therapy we always work on relationships and bidirectionality between the self and the outside world. The modality can be both individual and couples or mixed therapy, depending on the needs of each person.
