Life Skills Training

​A life with more emotional resources is more balanced and happy.

No, it's not therapy. It is a learning training based on DBT - Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and its mission is to develop and improve skills so that people, of any age, learn to better deal with their emotions, thoughts and behaviors in everyday situations, working through difficulties that are causing unhappiness and discomfort, or simply to increase the quality of life.


The training takes place in 12 individual sessions, where four pillars of self-development are worked on:

1. Interpersonal effectiveness

  • learn to be able to get what you want and need from others;

  • build functional relationships and end destructive relationships;

  • balance emotion and reason in interpersonal relationships.

3. Tolerance to discomfort

  • learn skills to prevent you from getting into an emotional crisis or be able to stop it if you are in one;

  • accept personal and everyday reality as it is and, especially, learn to live a life that may not be the one you planned, want or present to you.

2. Emotional regulation

  • understand and name emotions;

  • not allowing unwanted emotions to start and changing the unwanted emotions already installed.

4.Mindfulness (mindfulness)

  • the intention is to get out of automatic mode and act attentively to the present moment intentionally and without judgment;

  • learn to reduce suffering, increase joy;

  • keep the mind under control (and not the other way around);

  • experience reality as it is.

It is suitable for people who want or need to learn a set of tools that provide a more balanced and conscious life.A life worth living.
