Positive Therapy

What is Positive Therapy?

Positive Therapy is an innovative method that combines traditional psychotherapeutic methods and Positive Psychology to reduce psychological distress and malfunctioning. Due to the advances in the field of health sciences we now know that therapy is much more effective when it is complemented by strategies that optimize internal resources and already existing strengths. Nowadays we can draw from a growing tool kit of interventions that foster strengths and resources..Read more

This combination of traditional therapy and Positive Psychology is what makes the European Institute of Positive Psychology a reference in innovative treatments that increase wellbeing and quality of life in a short span of time. In comparison to other therapeutic approaches that focus on the reduction of symptoms and only incidentally on the construction of new resources the IEPP puts deliberate attention to personal growth processes that increase the sense of wellbeing.

Therapy for adults

When people contact us for an adult therapy in search for support, we often hear comments like “I can’t do this on my own”, “I get nervous and don’t know how to control it”, “I have panic attacks”, “I am sad most of the time”, “I feel so empty”, “I don’t have the energy or drive to do anything”, “I know I shouldn’t do this, but I can’t help it” or “I have so much anxiety that I can’t stop thinking about it”...Read more

These are the typical issues that are treated in our practice. Sometimes when somebody is in a very bad state, it seems that Positive Psychology is not ideal and that another type of treatment is required.

In our experience, which is base don 10 years of successful treatment of people with very high levels of psychological distress, Positive Psychology is a great complement that increases the motivation and energy to cope with daily life. Nevertheless, it is not enough in complex disorders that include panic attacks, emotional dependence o mayor depression. In these cases the therapist needs a specific training and clinical experience. Our team is made up of experts in cognitive-behavioral and strategic therapy, mindfulness and other specific approaches that will be applied depending to the type of distress the client is experiencing.

If you don’t know us, or haven’t heard about us from a friend or familiy member we recommend you to get to know us in a free orientation session so that you can ask all your questions and get a feeling of what it is like to work with us. Apart from that you can read the opinions of others that have undergone therapy at IEPP.




Therapy for kids

We are often contacted for therapy for kids by parents that want to improve the relationship with their kids, help them to overcome difficulties or learn to manage complex situations. Some examples include defiant attitudes, the opposition to rules, tantrums or a lack of communication. ..Read more

Sometimes the cause of the worry is that parents observe changes in their child: , it seems exhausted or withdrawn, lacks energy and concentration, is restless, agitated or short-tempered. Our approach will depend on the circumstances of each case, but it always starts with an exhaustive evaluation that covers the emotional state and behavior of the child at home and at school. Each intervention will be coordinated with the primary caregivers and other adults involved (parents, family, teachers, tutors, other health care professionals or doctors). Less
