1. Solution oriented Psychotherapy: Focused on specific symptoms or personal situations that you need to deal with, this type of psychotherapy explores and identify your resources to cope with your difficulties and increase your wellbeing in the here and now.

It helps you amplify your awareness and improve your social skills. I find over the years working in the field of addiction and mental diseases that this can be a powerful and transformative experience.

Expressive psychotherapy: A term that comes from psychoanalysis, an expressive process refers to a journey within yourself to explore and discover how you really are, what are your desires and needs, find your meaning and purpose and figure out what is stopping you from doing it.
