When first considering the posibility of starting a therapy process, many doubts arise. While I can’t reply to all those questions here, I can provide you with some highlights on how psychotherapy looks like at Initia.
What do we offer?
Quality, ethical and real psychotherapy, online and in Granada (Spain).
Because you are facing challenges you want to overcome. Because you feel it’s time to take action. Because you want to heal. Because you want to grow.
Who will be my therapist?
I’m Raquel Ruiz, licensed psychologist with almost a decade of experience providing psychotherapy and over fifteen years in the field of mental health. I specialize in anxiety, unhealthy relationship patterns, trauma and difficult life transitions. If you want to know more about me, you can check out this section.
When can we start?
You can send a message now through our contact form. I can usually reach you within the week, just share your times and days that work best, I will contact you as soon as possible.
What is my approach to therapy?
I’m a certified relational systemic psychotherapist. This means I take into account the person and the context, understanding how relationships develop and patterns prevail over time. When you work with me you will hear me talking about attachment, selfcare, anxiety management, etc… depending on the case.
I also use a range of techniques, including: CBT, EMDR and art therapy.
When working with couples, I use a PACT lens (a fusion of attachment theory, developmental neuroscience, and arousal regulation) combined with Gottman and other strategies to provide you with relatable tools to apply outside of our sessions.
Which modalities of psychotherapy you offer?
Currently there are four modalities available:
– Individual therapy.
– Single session counseling service (for specific practical issues).
– PACT/couples therapy.
– Family therapy.
