Photoreport of the Vitalitza Center: avant-garde psychology of Navarre

The team of professionals in which we work Vivify we carry out our work from a therapeutic approach with which we are fully committed and which includes three phases.

Vitalize: the three phases of therapy

We understand that the first challenge when we have started a relationship with the people who come to our center is to create a bond with them that allows us to walk together, as this bond is forged, we will try to know and understand the story of the person to come. at our center and at the present moment that it is going through. This moment would include the valuation phase.

After this first meeting, we believe that it is essential to provide our patients with the necessary tools to return to the minimum balance that will allow them to resume their daily routine with a certain normality and to help them put themselves in a predisposition to be able to working from the necessary stability the aspects of his experience that took him out of his window of tolerance.

This is where the intermediate phase of regulation and stabilization comes in.. Once the person has developed the capacity to remain sufficiently regulated, we will be able to work and work on any experiences in their history that may generate disturbances in their present. Here we would enter the final phase of integration.

Through the phases described and transversely to them, our intervention is part of a therapeutic and complementary triangle, in which Neurofeedback, Mindfulness and EMDR are found.

mindfulness

Mindfulness, which seeks to use and develop the brain’s natural ability to perceive itself, And therefore, learn to live the present moment fully. We use undivided attention as an essential therapeutic tool that extends throughout Vitalitza’s work.

Since the very beginning of psychology, this ability of people’s minds to reflect on themselves, to focus on their own functioning and thus to be able to tune in to the emotions and thoughts that are taking place. in U.S. psychologists and has been essential in all models of psychotherapists and personal growth.

On the other hand, in areas as far removed from psychology as many schools of Eastern meditation are, especially within Buddhism, the development of this capacity for self-awareness in people has been the central focus of their studies. knowledge.

Neurofeedback

The most recent research in this area has shown that the brain is incredibly plastic. and that it conceals the capacity to regenerate. It is the most adaptable organ in our system. So today we can say that “the brain can train”.

The team of psychologists that make up Vitalitza have extensive training and experience in the clinical use of neurofeedback. Neurofeedback is a type of biofeedback that directly affects brain function. It consists of recording the electrical activity of the brain (electroencephalogram). The electroencephalographic signal, when digitally analyzed, allows us to observe general brain activity and provides us with data on the functioning and connections between different areas of the brain.

Neurofeedback allows us, through the processing of electrical signals in the encephalogram, to design individualized treatment programs, to reinforce certain types of activities and to inhibit others.

The procedure is simple. Our professionals observe how a person’s brain works at a given time. During training, the person watches a screen on which moving images appear and / or hears different sounds. These images or sounds vary (as a reward or as reinforcement) as the person’s brain produces specific amplitudes and / or frequencies of brain waves. In this way, the person learns to use their brain more efficiently.

With neurofeedback, we try to attack the problems related to deregulation of the activity of the cerebral cortex; anxiety and mood disorders, conduct disorders, sleep problems, learning difficulties, etc.

EMDR

EMDR is an integrative psychotherapy whose reference for the conceptualization of the treatment is the adaptive processing of information. (TRIMMING).

The work of our expert EMDR professionals is based on understanding the effect of deregulatory and traumatic life experiences on health and on treating these experiences through structured protocols that include different forms of bilateral stimulation. EMDR therapy is approved by the World Health Organization and international clinical guidelines for the treatment of trauma.

EMDR is a patient-centered therapy that makes it easier for our psychologists to stimulate the healing tools inherent in the subject himself. It starts up the information processing system. The EMDR model emphasizes the physiological activation that appears alongside the negative sensations, emotions and beliefs under the symptoms that disturb the patient.

Finally, highlight something that, as professionals and as a team, we consider of particular importance. Beyond our working method and the tools we use on a daily basis, the professionals we train Vitalitza carry in the DNA of our work, warmth, support and respect for the people we serve. We believe that the essence of restorative relationships lies in creating safe and sincere bonds where the people we accompany are rediscovered by being looked at differently and thus start again through their own history and the world around them.
