What is PSYCHOLOGY?
Psychology is the SCIENCE that studies HUMAN BEHAVIOUR, its mental, emotional and social processes.
At PsicologiaESALUD we are based on an INTEGRATIVE therapeutic model, mainly based on the COGNITIVE-BEHAVIOURAL model, as well as on other main models such as EMDR, HUMANISTIC, etc.
What is HEALTH? PSYCHOLOGY & HEALTH
HEALTH is defined according to the WHO (World Health Organisation) as a state of PHYSICAL, PSYCHOLOGICAL and SOCIAL well-being.
Health is not the absence of illness, but is part of a continuum that ranges from a higher to a lower degree of health.
The BEHAVIOURS that human beings put into practice for the development of a healthy lifestyle, go through mental processes of information management, emotional management and decision making, so the analysis and management of these processes, definitely influence our quality of life.
Psychology offers us techniques and strategies for EVALUATION and TREATMENT to achieve this global state of health, which we have defined as physical, psychological and social.
Psychology allows us to put a name to what happens to us, to analyse and change those processes that harm us and to properly manage our emotions in order to BE AS HAPPY AS POSSIBLE, on a personal, couple, family, social and work/school level.

Couple relationships go through different stages depending on the vital moment in which we find ourselves and how each of the partners evolves. It is in this process where difficulties can arise.
The Couples psychotherapy allows us to evaluate and intervene in dysfunctional patterns and communication problems that affect the relationship, offering strategies that allow us to recover the bond and enjoy it.
The main conflicts we work with are:
- Communication problems
- Re-establishing the bond.
- Sexual problems: lack of sexual desire, erectile dysfunction, anorgasmia, vaginismus, etc.
- Emotional dependence
- Routine, stagnation and personal situations that may affect both partners: work, family, bereavement...
