Latin American Transcultural Psychotherapy

"Your mother tongue is the language of your emotions."


Latin American Transcultural Psychotherapy (LATP), is a psychotherapeutic approach that integrates the inter-and transcultural aspects for the treatment of psychological problems in  the Spanish-speaking community. LATP is inspired by the fusion of two methods of psychotherapy; Psychoanalysis and Gestalt, which cross their paths for the psychotherapeutic treatment between the cultural aspects of thinking, feeling in relation with conflicts and psychic problems in a new culture. 


For many Latin American migrants, migration itself can be experienced as a "culture shock." Culture shock is often determined by the grief of the loss of one's own culture, as well as by the change of identity through a new environment. 

If the grieving processes are not managed, it can lead to depression, psychosomatic diseases, identity crises and paranoid reactions, among other things. 


The need for LATP is characterised by the fact that it offers psychotherapy in Spanish for the Spanish speaking community. The mother tongue serves as the basis for psychotherapeutic treatment. 

LATP offers individual and group psychotherapy in: 

Group therapy: (Duration: 90 minutes/€30.- )
